MartAnne’s Breakfast Palace

More from this show

When you’re craving Mexican food in Arizona, nothing quite compares to the chilaquiles from MartAnne’s Breakfast Palace.  A staple in Flagstaff serving up traditional and heart Mexican  breakfast, lunch, and dinner. 

In this restaurant known as the House that Chilaquiles Built, you get to pick red or  verde sauce or both, known as Christmas-style.

Run by a mother-daughter team, the space is cozy and intimate, and the ambiance warm and inviting. Everyone who steps inside is made to feel like family.

Anne Ozumun, Momamger of MartAnne’s, describes the restaurant as a sweet little cafe, family owned. The artwork inside the  restaurant has a Day of the Dead theme and was created by a former server. 

They serve  chilaquiles, rancheros, enchiladas, and a few other kinds of specialty things. “When I hear that MartAnne’s is a must-eat in Flagstaff Arizona, I feel so proud and humbled.” Ozumun said. 

Guest Wayne Ranney, suggested MartAnne’s Breakfast Palace as his top pick.  MartAnne’s  is the one restaurant that he and his wife go to all the time. “We just love the food there, it has a New Mexico style favorite, and my wife and I really love that.” Ranney said. 

Guest Ranney recommended for appetizers the masa chips, describing them as delicious. “They ate like tamales, but on the inside they have melted Oaxaca cheese,” he said. 

Guest Ara Lynn Nowack, went for “El Ramirez”, a mini mountain of chilaquiles topped with pork green chile, chorizo and sour cream, served with an over medium egg. “It was just the perfect amount of spice and I really enjoyed it.” she said. 

For guest Rhonda Mathis, the server recommended the Enchilada y Huevo, a cheese enchilada, with homemade red sauce, onions, and topped with an egg over medium.

“Our server recommended the red sauce, which I loved,” she said, “this red sauce just had the perfect spice and the perfect consistency, it was so good.” 

Ara Lynn Nowack and Rhonda Mathis had the Horchata as a drink. They both agree it was delicious.  

To finish the review, all guests agreed the atmosphere was very eclectic. “On the walls they have “Day of the Dead” theme paintings and the walls are all painted bright red.”  Ranney said.
