Tangerine Breakfast Awesomness

North Boulder Breakfast

Hopping hot spot on the north side of town.  Tangerine is an orange infused space catering to those in search of a delicious breakfast option.  An array of seating options, from booths to tables, bar seating and a lovely outdoors area when the weather is decent.  That outside space is really nice – someone at Tangerine has a very green thumb with beautiful hanging baskets galore.

Beautiful Food

Excellent menu.  On a recent visit, my wife and I enjoyed some delicious dining.  There are a wide variety of Eggs Benedict dishes to choose from.  Julie opted for the original French recipe adding a gluten free English Muffin.  The hollandaise sauce was excellent, with a citrus finish.

Although my sweet tooth was calling for the brioche french toast or a platter of pancakes, I resisted.  Somehow.  For those loving sweet breakfast options, Tangerine offers real maple syrup.  Stacks of pancakes are served with an extra topping, such as blueberries or whipped cream.

Instead, I tried the house specialty steak and eggs.   You know what? The Hanger steak was incredible.  This entree is a great meal.  It included polenta (Italian cornmeal), guacamole, peppers and onions, potatoes, eggs however I liked and the steak.  The dish looks beautiful in presentation and is quite filling.

Wondering what it would be like to enjoy dinner?  Chef/Proprietor Alec Schuler and his wife Gabriella also own and operate Arugula Bar e Ristorante next door.

Boulder restaurants are weighing in on the controversy surrounding who can go where. I’ve seen this sort of option around town lately and I like it!
