What Washington Needs: Breakfast Breggos From Boulder

Attention Coloradans in the D.C. area: Have you ever had any of the delicious goodies from the good folks at Breggos in Boulder? I was traveling in the Centennial State recently and enjoyed different varieties for breakfast at a great coffee shop down the street from my hotel. What are these delightful Breggos? It might just be the best breakfast-delivery device every conceived.

Think of a pressed calzone warmed up on a panini press, stuffed with potatoes, scrambled eggs, a mix of cheddar and colby cheese, and your choice of meat. (I liked the bacon variety in particular.)

According to the Breggos website, "[a]ctive Coloradoans find Breggos to be the right balance of protein and carbohydrates to get them through the day." It's filling, easy to eat, and moderately priced. One Breggo in the morning tied my stomach over until a late lunch and early happy hour later in the day.

While Breggos are currently only distributed in and around Boulder, I imagine these treats could make a killing in D.C., perfect for local coffee shops or food trucks. The one drawback for consumption? Warming a Breggos breakfast treat isn't necessarily quick. For best results, it's a two-step process: first, microwave, then toast on a panini grill. Simply microwaving works, too, but you don't get that crispness.

    Mike you got to try one of the hidden CO specialties!!! We have great microbrews, sure, but there's some great food too. The Brewing Market is the easiest place to find them I think. I miss me some Boulder.
