We are always looking for good breakfast spots. The Breakfast Place is a typical San Jose area restaurant in that it is located in a strip mall. It completely blends into its surroundings, making it somewhat of a hole in the wall. The inside looks like it used to be a Taqueria with wooden booths. This is breakfast and lunch restaurant has many Mexican inspired breakfast items and those of the dishes I recommend. Oddly, there are mugs, a variety of coffee mugs hanging on the wall. The menu is reminiscent of its fusion decor (fusion: too fancy of a word to use in the description of the atmosphere but none the less I believe I have properly used the word), a combination of Mexican breakfast dishes including Chilaquiles, Breakfast Burritos, and American classics such Chicken Fried Steak and Biscuits and Gravy (I would stick with the Mexican dishes and/or the french toast though). The two stars were the Huevos Rancheros and the Peanut Butter French Toast (& Chili Verde Eggs). The Huevos Rancheros was delicious and some of the best I’ve had. The Peanut Butter French Toast was unique and decadent. I’m not sure the Chicken Fried Steak lived up to these two dishes, however a friend said he did like the Irish Eggs Benedict.
