Cafe Conrado Rosarito

My preference is mom/pop. dive or hole in the wall restaurants vs. “prom queen” five star establishments.  Found a good one at K22 hwy 1 Baja this week in Cafe Conrado.

My hotel’s internet offering was iffy, so I asked where I could find a spot for coffee, good food and connection to the universe.  Cafe Conrado is easy to find at the San Antonio Del Mar exit of hwy 1.  It’s the same exit as the BEST BLOODY MARIES in BAJA at Plan B, but, on west/ocean side of the road.

One of my criterion is seating of less than 100, with 50 capacity preferred.  Cafe Conrado seats 12 in a pinch, with a very small patio, outdoor option.

Ulyesses(!) greeted and seated us in the small dining room that has a terrific view of the Coronado Islands.  We had no idea that the food would match the view.

The breakfast burrito was full of veggies and fresh flavors.

Baja Benedict eggs and hollandaise sauce were perfectly done and yummy.

It was funny to her Ulysses introduce himself, as “Ooh – LEE – sayz” is not a name my ears have become accustomed to hearing.  Ulysses could not be more kind and caring than he showed all of the customers during my 3 hour visit.

Yep, we were internet hogs today!

The wifi signal strong and the Cafe Conrado clientele added to the fun atmosphere.  There was a mix of locals and travelers at the cafe this morning with interesting stories to share.

In addition to the fresh food, Cafe Conrado offers some good looking desserts and pastries.  The pies and postres are baked fresh on premises.  They also deliver locall.

    Hey Dock: This is great info. This is just one of the things that makes your site so useful to us gringos huespedes in Baja. I will try the restaurant, sounds great. I think Ulysses will be happy with the advertising too! Keep up the good work!
