One of my all-time favorite breakfast dishes, Biscuits with Sausage Gravy, is now served exclusively at the Blue Parrot Bar and Grill in San Pedro la Laguna. It’s only Q25, and you can get two eggs for only Q5 more.
They also have custom omelets, Eggs Benedict and other economical and tasty breakfasts as well and sandwiches, steaks and sausage. The Blue Parrot Bar and Grill is on 7th Avenue, across from El Barrio Bar. For a review of this restaurant, see the BBlue Parrot Bar and Grill.
