Pazar is a locally owned breakfast and lunch establishment with good food and a touch of charm.

I typically am a fan of breakfast joints, especially when I travel to new places and find locally owned ones near the beach. You tend to know what you are getting, or they might have a unique twist on traditional meals, and it’s usually good. So, of course, I had to try this restaurant.

Looking at the menu, it had burgers, fajitas, sandwiches, and even a vegan burger option. They had soups and salads for a healthier option, and lastly country foods, and breakfast. Everything on the menu was below $12.

I decided to go with the breakfast burger because I wasn’t sure if I wanted breakfast or lunch more. My dining partner got the jalapeno and bacon cheeseburger. The wait was a little longer than I anticipated, but the cook personally came out and apologized and explained there was a substantial order that came in before us, which generally at other restaurants, I never see cooks do, and I felt that was hospitable of her.

Besides the large group that came before me, our side of the restaurant wasn’t too packed, and it was quiet and comfortable. The windows were tall and big letting in lots of sunlight, and there were art pieces hunged up on the walls that added character while giving me something to look at when I was eating.When the meal came out, I was ready for it. It was a combination of burger, cheese, a hash brown, bacon, seasoning and a side of fries. I had coffee for my beverage, and the portion size of the meal was of considerable size. I could smell everything.

I tried the fries first and needed to add just a little salt. The crunchiness was perfect. I then tried the burger which was pretty big; it was so full in the patty I had to eat around it so it wouldn’t spill out everywhere. The combination of flavors compliment each other well. The meat was juicy and tender. The egg well seasoned, and the hash brown was crunchy and flavorful. The bacon was a little overwhelming with the saltiness of it and slightly chewy. Altogether it entertained my senses and was enjoyable.

The coffee was strong but average. My dining partner enjoyed their meal as well, saying it was “spicy, flavorful, and tasted home cooked.”

The staff was friendly and showed good customer service. They came by to refill my drinks often and asking if we needed anything.
