With a captive audience of Carlsbad Caverns tourists, my expectations were modest for a good breakfast. Cactus Cafe proved me oh-so-wrong, serving up one of the best breakfasts I've eaten in 25 years! My chorizo, cheese, egg, potato, and green chile burrito came through with an optimum balance of flavor, picante, and comfort. Gotta love those New Mexico chiles. My niece's Mexican breakfast with perfectly cooked and seasoned refried beans and eggs was equally delicious. Bonus: gorgeous stained glass windows of Carlsbad Cavern formation and a red rock butte. Ample portions, but we did not want to miss a bite (and did not trust the usual restaurant styrofoam box to such delicious leftovers, so I walked 500 feet back to Rodeway Inn to fetch some zipper bags from our vehicle to securely stow the leftovers in our cooler.
