Eat Capitol Hill tacos for breakfast

Starting Friday at Good Weather (Image: Good Weather)

Lots of tacos flying around in Capitol Hill food and drink is nothing new. We’re blessed. One great taco joint replaces another, in these parts. Even our bodegas have great tacos. And now you can eat Capitol Hill tacos for breakfast.

Starting this Friday, Good Weatherthe bicycle repair shop and cafe that moved into Chophouse Row in 2017 — is rolling out something it hopes to grow into a big thing: Friday morning tacos —

We’re excited to start serving Breakfast Tacos at Good Weather from 8AM to 10AM on Friday Mornings. We’re making some of our own salsas, using cage-free eggs, and trying to stay reasonably true to what you’d find in Texas (we’ve been testing them on our Texas friends).

Good Weather will also have coffee, juice, and a glass of sparkling wine or two on offer to accompany the selection of three different tacos on flour tortillas. A gluten-free option will also be available.

Good Weather’s Brandon Waterman says the hope is to turn Friday mornings into a bit of a fiesta. “Eventually, we hope to evolve it into a bit of a Friday morning party with breakfast tacos, music, and the occasional live performance, but we’re getting things going first with the food,” he writes.

While many of the rest of Capitol Hill’s great Mexican restaurants open around 11 AM and have plenty of juevos and bloody mary action to go around, credit is due to the earlier risers in the brunch bunch.

Early Capitol Hill brunch risers can also enjoy breaking their weekend fasts with Mexican-inspired delicacies at 19th Ave E’s Rocket Taco. After opening in the overhauled Kingfish Cafe space in 2018, Rocket Taco launched a weekend brunch a few weeks back. Offerings include breakfast Tacos with fillings like egg and bacon, poblanos and cream, and chorizo potato, huevos ranchero, and, yes, churro waffles.

Two other Mexican restaurants offering weekend brunch menus are 12th Ave’s Barrio — which marked ten years of business in 2018 — and relatively new Anejo on Broadway. Rocket Taco begins its brunch service on the weekends at 9 AM while Barrio and Anejo join the morning game at 10 AM.

Good Weather is located in the back of Chophouse Row at 1424 11th Ave in the alley between Cafe Pettirosso and Marmite. You can learn more at
