4. Rojo

One of the selling points for my apartment was the fact that it’s a short walk from Rojo, a Highland Park restaurant with a large brunch menu. Choose a breakfast burrito with eggs, rice, black beans, jalapeño sausage, queso and pico de gallo, or go for a vegetarian option with eggs, potatoes and peppers.

5. Tacos La Tia Paisa

Located on Valley Ave, Tacos La Tia Paisa offers amazing breakfast burritos. You can choose from multiple burrito options with combinations of beans, cheese, chorizo, eggs, bacon and more.

6. Black Market Bar and Grill
