In Mexico it’s seldom hard to find a good meal, but some of the best places to get breakfast are often restaurants in the top hotels. I spent last weekend visiting Patzcuaro, Mexico, a magical colonial city south of Morelia in Michoacan. My family and I at twice at Hotel Mansion Iturbe and here’s a sampling in photo form.
Mansion Iturbe is not quite a luxury hotel, but it’s certainly comfortable enough and it’s in an evocative, rambling home built about the time the U.S. declared its independence. With a terrific location right on the main square (but surprisingly quiet in the rooms), it’s a fantastic value. Even if you’re not staying there though, try the food at Doña Paca Restaurant.
The dishes above are a sampling of what’s for breakfast if you go for the regional specialties.
If you have a picky kid with you though, as I did, don’t worry. You can still get French Toast with strawberries. What she really liked though, was the basket of sugar cookies on the table. Breakfast of champions.
