Cacao Mexicatessen | Northeast L.A. | Deli, Mexican | Restaurant
On Colorado Blvd. in Eagle Rock, this charming neighborhood restaurant specializing in Mexican cuisine is many things: a deli, a market, a fantastic breakfast spot, and a Mecca for one of the best dishes in town, the duck carnets taco. With outdoor patio dining and friendly service, you can dine happily on french fries with mole, tacos of the day on housemade tortillas and excellent Mexican hot chocolate, then get a quesadilla and a Hecho en Eagle Rock T-shirt to go. --Amy Scattergood
