5 Points Market and Restaurant's Huevos Rancheros was one of the first breakfasts I had in Tucson that blew me away.
A corn tortilla is buried beneath layers of pinto beans, over medium eggs, sharp white cheddar, and a pool of piquant house ranchero. Top that with pico de gallo, slivers of perfectly ripe avocado, and a smattering of cilantro-serrano pesto for a taste sensation.
It's well-balanced and satisfying, leaving no room for a slice of one of their beautifully decorated cakes. Best paired with an exotic iced tea — Lil' Dickens is my go-to — or cold brew.
Other offerings include the Salmon Benedict, The Eggleston Sandwich, and The Pancake (that giant, plate-dominating pancake).
If you're not a tea advocate, there are a variety of creamy hot drinks, health drinks, and freshly squeezed juices to choose from.
There might be a wait when you arrive (let's be real, it is a popular brunch spot). In that case, peruse the indoor market and/or order a beverage if need be. Outdoor seating is also an option, especially if you've brought along your furbaby.
