After another fun morning at Newport Beach with the dogs we searched and searched for a breakfast joint.  Finally we stopped at Wilma’s Patio.  Wilma’s is an older joint with a good sized menu.  Place seemed a little pricey and we were just not feeling it.  When the food came out we were pleasantly surprised.  They used quality ingredients and cooked our breakfast perfectly.


I had the Jalisco Scrambled with pork carnitas and hash browns.  The eggs were scrambled with tomatoes, onions, Serrano peppers and cilantro. The scramble had big pieces of carnitas and had a nice fresh flavor. The scramble was perfect with their fresh salsa and warm corn tortillas. The hash browns were perfect; they had a nice crunchy texture throughout without being over cooked. You could tell the person that made these had pride in his work!

Kim had scrambled eggs, hash browns and a side of cornbread. Once again the hash browns were perfect the eggs were cooked just right. However the star here was the cornbread with whipped butter and honey. It was a big piece. They were not kidding around. The cornbread was nice and airy and baked just right. It was not a traditional southern cornbread but was very good.

If you are in the Balboa area stop by and check out this joint. I wonder if their lunch and dinner are as good?
