Harry’s Roadhouse is exactly what its name implies, but it is so much more than a place to have great margaritas. On this visit, we came for breakfast following our weekly visit to the Santa Fe Farmers’ Market. Often, there is a wait for a table (you won’t be seated until everyone in your party is there). However, on this Saturday we were seated promptly and our much-needed caffeine was speedily delivered by a polite and efficient waitress.
We started with one of Peyton’s amazing cinnamon rolls, served Saturday and Sunday mornings only. What a treat! It’s always too much with whatever else you order for breakfast, but it is impossible to resist.
One member of our party ordered “Huevos Divorciados”, which consists of two corn tortillas with two eggs cooked anyway you like. One tortilla holds two grilled shrimp and creamy tomatillo salsa, cotija and avocado; the other, pasilla salsa and queso fresco. This is served with refried black beans and a flour tortilla. Excellent!
I ordered brioche stuffed with peaches and mascarpone, topped with powdered sugar and raspberry puree. I almost swooned after the first bite. It looked beautiful on the plate and tasted even better than it looked. The creamy mascarpone with sweet peaches and crisp, delicate brioche is just perfect.
Lemon Ricotta Pancakes are light as the proverbial feather and delicately flavored.
Harry’s is a short distance from the Old Pecos Trail exit from I-25 and well worth the trip. Lunch and dinner are equally good. You will find Harry’s filled with locals and travelers every time of day.
