Leon on a Spoon

Great breakfast place – The Desayunazo. Located down the street on a corner from Lazy Bones, The Desayunazo serves up one of the best, if not the best, breakfast food in Leon.

The place specializes in breakfast food ranging from Huevos Rancheros to mouth-watering banana and strawberry pancakes that will probably be the most fluffy pancakes you’ll taste in Central America.

If you’re looking for something more along the lines of what the locals eat, order the Huevos Rancheros, a simple plate serving eggs covered in a home-made salsa-esque sauce accompanied by rice and beans.

You can also check out the Nicaraguan Breakfast, which are 2 eggs, and tortilla, served with rice and beans.

You can always try the simple choices such as breakfast burrito, breakfast sandwich, or a nice and easy English breakfast. Regardles of which option you choose, the food will not disappoint.

Order the fruit salad containing freshly cut and cold bananas, pineapple, melon, papaya, and watermelon, served with a side of yogurt and granola. This fruit salad was by far the freshest fruit dish I have had so far in my travels through Central America.

The interior decor is simple, yet true to its Nicaraguan roots. The place feels breezy and open thanks to the high-ceilings and long, spacious windows that look out onto the street. On most days, the owner himself will come out to take your order and serve you your food.

The Desayunazo doesn’t simply serve the best breakfast food. It also boasts extremely reasonable prices. On one occasion, Jon and I ordered eggs, home fries, and bacon; a fruit salad with granola and yogurt; a glass of orange juice, and an order of banana and strawberry pancakes, each! We were’t sure exactly how much food we were ordering, but decided to take the risk. We ended up gorging ourselves with fresh, homemade food, and after all was said and done, the total bill came out to be about 285 Cordobas, which is approximately $12 for the both of us.

This place is, hands down, the best breakfast place in Leon. But don’t take my word for it. Go to Desayunazo, and see for yourself.
