Pan di Bacco Breakfast Review
Cabo San Lucas, Los Cabos, Baja California Sur, Mexico
Pan di Bacco Breakfast Review – Last Friday I was thinking, where do I want to go for breakfast and then it dawned on me. I decided to go to some place that had A/C and the food was also good so the decision was easy for me. I decided to go to Pan di Bacco. While I was sitting there and looking at the menu, I realized that Pan di Bacco was different from any other place in Cabo and why was it different? They served Italian food. Most of the places in Cabo serve the typical Mexican style breakfast. Traditional egg dishes from the U.S.A. plus the Mexican dishes that I and others have learned to love like Huevo’s Ranchero, Huevo’s Mexicana, Chilaquiles either in a red or green sauce served with either eggs, chicken or meat, Pan di Bacco has none of that, they serve traditional Italian dishes. When you think of Italian, you think of either lunch or dinner and that can be either pizza or some kind of pasta. So Pan di Bacco serves something that is out of the ordinary so I decided to write about their breakfast menu only.
They serve traditional Neapolitan Recipes that the owners learned to cook from their grandparents back in the 1920’s inNápoles, Italy. The keyword in describing Pan di Bacco is homemade and they keep that style throughout the day in all of the dishes they serve. Their pastas are homemade along with homemade mozzarella cheese. I will talk about their lunch and dinner menu at a later date, but today I want to concentrate on their excellent choices of breakfast. To start with, their coffee is made out of an espresso machine and is made to order. You may not think that pizza is something that you would order for breakfast, but they have a special pizza created just for breakfast. I am going to throw out some Italian words just to confuse you, but that is what they are called on the menu.
Pizza All Uovo, traditional pizza baked with eggs and your choice of either bacon or Italian sausage. It’s tasty and you can split it between two people and the cost is only $11usd. If you love omelet’s, they serve three different types but they throw a different kind of twist on their eggs. In a traditional omelet, you place the selected food items into the omelet and then fold the omelet over the top, in Pan di Bacco, they allow the eggs to cook in a thin layer and then they place the ingredients into the eggs and then roll the eggs over into a short roll. One of my favorites is Tutto Verde which contains spinach, cream cheese, ham and arugula. What they do to this omelet is interesting because they blend the spinach into the eggs with a blender and this turns the eggs green and then the rest of the ingredients are rolled into the omelet. Cost is $8usd. The next one is an omelet served with smoked salmon, also with cream cheese and arugula, cost $9usd and the final choice is the chefs recommendation which contains your choice of either ham and mushrooms or Caprese, mozzarella, tomato and basil, $9usd. All omelets are served with a small dish of marinara sauce to add some extra flavor to the omelet.
They make three great Panini’s to choose from. The first is salmon with cream cheese, arugula and tomato. The second choice is prosciutto di Parma Ham served with mozzarella, arugula and tomato, both of these cost $8usd. The third choice is my girlfriends favorite choice for breakfast, All Uovo which is an egg omelet made with homemade mayonnaise, ham and parmesan cheese, cost $9usd. If your kids are into waffles, they have three choices. The first one is served with bananas and caramel, the second one is served with strawberries, both of these are $5usd and the last one is Nutella, with strawberries and whipped cream $7usd.
They are open at 8am and remain open for breakfast till 11:30 and then they start serving lunch. Whatever you try, you will not be disappointed and if you would like to make a reservation, their phone number is 143-3127. Forgot to mention, if your driving here in Cabo and go to Pan di Bacco anytime during the day, you can park across the street at Arrumburo and they will validate your parking for the first two hours.
