Huevos Rancheros 13: 2 creamy eggs (sunny side up my favorite), spicy black beans, jalapeno jack cheese and a house-made corn tortilla topped with salsa, sour cream, and guacamole. The crunchy tortilla on the bottom of the eggs added a nice texture. I love the southern mix.
Locus Restaurant was a pleasant surprise and now we have another brunch place to add to our list. I could get used to this. Prices are fairly reasonable too.
