You could also just go alone, but if you go with a friend or partner, you can order some things to share, like the yummy crepes or a croughnuts, which is what I did this morning. Or, you could just order yourself a bunch of stuff and call it a day. No judgment. 

Pekara's bistro breakfast with a cup of potatoes, whole wheat toast, bacon, scrambled eggs, and two small plastic containers, one with strawberry jam and one with butter on a white plate. The plate is on a wood table.

This morning, I knew that I would be ordering the Bistro Breakfast ($13.95; scrambled, crispy bacon, whole wheat sourdough today). Eggs were great, the breakfast potatoes were, as always, among the best in town. I could also eat Pekara’s strawberry jam every day of my life. Frankly, it’s the reason I order toast. My husband ordered his version of the same thing, and we shared a vanilla croughnut ($4), which was perfectly soft and chewy. The vanilla frosting is definitely a sugar rush in the morning. If you don’t want that much frosting, I suggest the churro flavor. We also purchased a bottle of Natalie’s Juice brand tangerine juice ($6.45). The juice was very pricey, but it was very delicious and a nice upgrade from regular orange juice. 

There are plenty of other breakfast options available, too. Check out the menu for more details.
