Start your day off with a coffee or a full breakfast at one of Montrose’s popular coffee shops. Common Bond Bistro & Bakery’s drip coffee and French Toast and Bacon is the perfect breakfast combo. If you’re looking for a great study or work spot to go along with your morning coffee visit the Greek-themed Agora coffeehouse. At Agora you can sit back in one of their plush couches and get your day started.

James Beard Award Winner Chef Hugo Ortega’s Hugo’s in Montrose offers Mexico City classics with a contemporary twist. We recommend tasting the Taquitos de Pollo (rolled fried chicken tacos, avocado-tomatillo salsa, guacamole, queso fresco, crema fresca and frijoles refritos) - and  if you’re feeling adventurous, try the Chapulines which are pan sautéed grasshoppers! Writer and journalist Matthew Mitchell’s Traveler’s Table is another dining option in Montrose. Its “curated global cuisine” menu serves modern versions of dishes from around the world like Pão de queijo from Brazil, Moroccan Lamb Tagine and Jamaican Jerk Chicken.
