Las Ventanas at Coronado Springs has been open a few months over a year now, but it seems like it has been around longer. I’ve visited for breakfast (shortly after its debut) and lunch (about a year ago), and decided to revisit for breakfast as I had been craving poached eggs.
I started off with a Bloody Mary, and theirs is fairly standard. If the mix was Finest Call, they seemingly added Tabasco to it to kick up the spice a touch. However, I wasn’t coming here seeking a great Bloody Mary – Matt makes those at home. 😉
For my meal, I ordered the Huevos Divorciados: Two Eggs any style – I ordered soft poached – served on a Cheese Quesadilla with Black Beans topped with Fresh Salsa Roja, Salsa Verde, and Queso Fresco. The dish also came with Potatoes. I had meant to order a side of the Chorizo Sausage Patty, but it completely skipped my mind.
My two eggs were nicely poached, unlike the ones I had a few weeks back at Whispering Canyon Cafe (perhaps that’s why I’ve been craving them…). I immediately moved them on top of the potatoes before breaking into them, and they were great.
The two salsas were very good, with the Salsa Roja having a nice heat level while being flavorful. The Salsa Verde added some brightness to the Quesadilla. Note that the quesadillas are made with corn tortillas. I think they could have used a bit more browning, but the cheese within was thoroughly melted. The Black Beans were well-prepared as well.
The Potatoes were also on point, and adding the Poached Eggs with a bit of Queso Fresco only made them better.
And the menu:
Overall, the breakfast was one of the best I’ve had on property in a while. It was one of those meals that just hit the spot. The restaurant was pretty empty when I arrived at around 10 am, so accommodating a walk-in was no problem. My only regret is that, when given the option of a two-person table or booth, I selected the former, which was right under a TV that was pumping out techno music. I’d advise against that seat. Otherwise, I highly recommend visiting for breakfast.
