Black Bean Omelette

Back by popular demand — the Black Bean Omelette!

Mashed refried beans, simmered with fresh fried tomatoes, caramelized onions, cilantro, jalapeño and garlic. A generous handful of sharp Vermont cheddar, topped with a dollop of sour cream.

What a combo! What an omelette! What an incredible breakfast experience! With home fries and a side salad, to round out the plate.

These Rice Cakes Just Keep Getting Better

Now with grilled veggies.

The rice cakes themselves are still quite a thrill— with tomato and onion and spices and whatnot, baked then fried to crispy perfection. Fantastic!!

Rice Cakes

We make our own rice cakes, with fresh cilantro, tomato, onion and garlic. De-e-e-e-lish!

Top them with a couple of eggs, either breakfast meat or mashed black beans like me, and a side salad; maybe even slathered in guacamole (and we make a mean guacamole)

Huevos Tostada— Easy over eggs on a crispy fried tortilla, layered with home fries, chorizo and Manchego cheese, covered with ranchero sauce, drizzled with lime cream, and topped with avocado. Whew! But with the side salad it has all you need for a winters day, with plenty of fuel for jingling bells, shoveling snow and shopping

Strawberry Shortcake Pancakes

With fresh strawberry-orange compote and your choice of Whipped Cream or Vanilla Yoghurt

Chicken Tenders

With the nutty coating on these succulent Chicken Tenders fried just-so crunchy, we are seriously close to running out of adjectives. Please, if you care for the English language, stop by Carmen’s booth on Broadway and drop off a few descriptors.

Pick up some of these Chicken Tenders at the same time, and top them off with a hot spicy Chai, to lift a cool fall day!

Slide into Sunday

Ease into your morning with a Mocha Latte from Carmen’s. Rich Colombian coffee, plus tasty organic Cacao, blended with cream, maple syrup and a hint of orange.
