I warn you, entering Bang Bang Cafe without an appetite is as egregious as leaving the house without pants. No one comes for just a coffee—they come for the cafe’s breakfast bagels and burritos, which are served all day. Skip the basics and order the “Bang Bang”: eggs, beans, potatoes, cheese—add sausage, avocado, and sour cream if the spirit moves you—smothered in smoky green and red chilies (shipped up fresh from Hatch, New Mexico, not that crappy El Paso canned shit QFC stocks). One bite and I promise it’ll make your gut sing. (Bang Bang Cafe, 2460 Western Ave, 448-2233)
