1134 Orange Avenue, Coronado
With bistro tables outside and an art-splattered, split-level, warm wood interior, 1134 doesn't even have to try hard. One badge of coolness: all the day's newspapers hanging wedged in their split sticks. The New York Times, the Wall Street Journal...there's half your breakfast pleasure already. The other half comes from the modest, but healthy menu. The "Americana" breakfast is two steamed eggs, Swiss cheese and ham, a side of fruit, and a sliced baguette. The "Mykonos" comes with feta cheese, the "Classico" with lox, and the "Sevilla" with tomato and cheese and cilantro. Order an English "big cuppa" tea to go with it. Take it all outside. Chew, slurp, glance at the Op-Ed page, and watch le tout Coronado sauntering by.
