City Pages' Description

Consider yourself a connoisseur of all things flapjack? Well buddy, you haven't lived unless you've had one of Maria's famed corn pancakes, plate-sized, finger-thick fellows as brown as wrens, as plump as puddings. No wonder people make the counterintuitive pilgrimage from Wayzata to Phillips just for an order of the beauties. Other highlights? Vegetarians do backflips for the lemony marinated eggplant sandwich, and that dark and bitter Colombian-style flan inspires pilgrimages of its own.

    This isn't Perkins! Vibrant Columbian fare. I've only eaten during the breakfast/brunch hours, but it's just amazing food. The corn pancakes and mango pancakes...mmmm. Good, strong coffee. Fresh, homemade and delicious. Everything that the chains aren't.

    The corn pancakes are out of this world.

    Get a corn pancake and any of their breakfast dishes that includes yuca and plantains. Best breakfast in the cities, bar none.

    Corn pancakes! And also Pablo's Omelet and the salsa is wonderful, fresh breath-taking, but wonderful.

  • Sarah B. on 04/06/09

    Get Juan's breakfast sandwich as opposed to Pablo's Omelet. Beat on the street is that Juan feels inferior to Pablo because his sandwich is slightly less popular than the omelet

    I will say it once more. The corn pancakes here make me want to get out of bed on Saturday mornings. Great service here too.
