Visiting a bar or two is one of the best ways to see a city, but a late night can seriously deter early morning plans. That’s why it’s always important to be on the lookout for a hearty breakfast that can combat an evening of many drinks. Enter the breakfast burrito, which is substantial enough to keep us full until lunch, even if we’re walking miles in a new city.
The breakfast burrito was invented, so the story goes, by a Santa Fe, New Mexico restaurant called Tia Sophia’s in 1975. Or at least it was the first place to specifically call it a “breakfast burrito” on the menu. A lot of things have changed since then, including the fact that you can find an at least halfway decent breakfast burrito in any mid-size town. But halfway decent doesn’t always cut it. If you’re traveling in the cities listed below, make it a point to eat a breakfast burrito. These are the best breakfast burritos in the country, from California to New York and everywhere in between.
