Oh Stitch, how I love you. I have written about Stitch before, but I feel like it deserves another post. Every time I go here, which is often, I am so impressed with the consistency of the food and the high quality. The staff is also always incredibly friendly and the environment and atmosphere is so welcoming. I think they have some of the best coffee in the city, especially their Tres Leches latte – it’s so smooth and creamy with a strong espresso flavor. Besides delicious coffee, their menu features breakfast tacos, tarts and tots – the 3 T’s! Any of their tacos can be turned into a burrito or a bowl. In addition to breakfast tacos they also have a section of “Over-Slept” items that are more lunch forward like Smoked Carne, Hot Honey Chicken and Grilled Shrimp. I haven’t made it to these tacos yet or their tots because I love their breakfast tacos so much.
I go to Stitch probably once a week, even if I just grab a coffee. My go to order is an iced coffee (usually the tres leches latte), a taco and a tart. I love getting both because it is too hard to choose. I try to switch what tacos and tarts I get so I can try them all! I have worked my way through almost all of their sweet tarts and my favorite is Campfire, Bam Bam or Brown Sugar. The Strawberry Prickly is also pretty dope – it is similar to a classic strawberry poptart with much better ingredients. On my latest trip I grabbed the Peanut Butter Vibes which features peanut butter dough, grape jelly and peanut butter drizzle. I love PBJ so much and I wanted to love this tart, but it just didn’t do it for me. The dough on this one was a bit thick and dry for me – perhaps it was the peanut butter, but it needed some more liquid. Combined with the peanut butter drizzle on top it was just a lot and if you have ever eaten a spoonful of peanut butter, you know how hard it can be to get down. The grape jelly helped cut it a bit, but there wasn’t that much filling in the middle of this tart. This is probably my least favorite and I would give it a 4/10.
Their tacos, while delicious, are on the pricier side for what you get. My favorite, the Quick Draw, comes with espresso glazed bacon, eggs, and cheddar cheese. The taco is $3.50 and while I would eat it every day, the filling isn’t as stuffed as I would expect for that price. My second favorite taco is their Migas – it comes with black beans, eggs, smoked gouda, onions + poblanos, tomatoes, avocado and tortilla strips with a hatch chili salsa. This taco is $4.50 and has a lot more filling, but doesn’t feature any meat.
