Neither Marie nor I are enthusiastic breakfast people but we ended up at Prado on Sunday morning and so decided to try a couple of things in addition to coffee.
They have what I think was an ongoing special of a coffee and bread pudding for $4. The bread pudding was tasty enough but a little on the dense side. We should have asked for it to be warmed up. Still, tasty and not a bad way to start your morning.
We also shared the Prado Breakfast and this was definitely worth having. A nicely poached egg on top of microgreens with a balsamic and grainy mustard dressing all on top of mashed avocado on sourdough! Not bad at all! My dark roast coffee had a bit of that bitter aftertaste. I am a Starbucks dark roast guy (not an expert but not clueless either) and this did not quite do the trick for me.
Still, I love the high ceiling and windows (this is more or less the lobby of the Civic Hotel). The morning menu has a few other variations with poached eggs, toast etc not too mention a choice of baked goods. The furniture is sleek and comfortable while the staff were very friendly. I would come again for the breakfast and maybe try a speciality coffee or tea.
For what it's worth, we give Prado Cafe 3 1/2 out of 5.
