An intimate, triangular patio greets the sunrise with window dividers that can be rolled up to let in orphaned appetites, and plates pile high with spicy omelets, salsa-slathered eggs, and hearty breakfast burritos. Mexican tortas bundle savory shredded meats within bolillo bread, which a Chicago Sun Times reporter called "a sub sandwich bun taken to another level of goodness", and recipes hailing from the Caribbean nestle morsels of beef and chicken alongside the salty sweetness of fried plantains.
