A friend of mine was in town from Superior, Wisconsin this weekend, so I dragged him to the May Day Cafe to try their breakfast burrito. I found out about this particular breakfast burrito based on a Google search for “minneapolis breakfast burrito” so I figured it was worth checking out.
The quicky explanation: this breakfast burrito sucks.
Breaking it down: The only thing going for this breakfast burrito is the price. At $4.95, how can you go wrong? Well, let me explain the ways:
1. The salsa is about as spicy as ketchup. Imagine something half as spicy as Pace Mild Salsa, then cut that in half. I know we’re in Minnesota, but seriously, this is ridiculous.
2. The burrito contents were basically potatoes, onions, and cumin.
3. The potatoes were cold. They had been cooked, so they weren’t like raw-hard but they were NOT warm. Seemed like they were a day old.
4. The chips served with the burrito were nothing to write home about. Nothing special. Crispy, thick, probably store bought.
Here’s where I really had a problem with this breakfast burrito: NO EGGS! Seriously, if you order a breakfast burrito wouldn’t you expect it to contain eggs?
Put this all together with looking at a bearded woman while trying to eat it, and I can assure you I won’t be back anytime soon.
For those who’ve been to the May Day, please please please let me know what I should order next time I go.
