Need a gravy fix?
Near the corner of Cinco de Mayo and Dominguez is a tiny shop eponymously called BAJA BISCUITS.
With barely enough room for three people to stand at the counter and place an order, the owners, Floridians Ace and Linda have stretched a beautiful awning across the sidewalk and placed tables outside.
Very few places in La Paz offer biscuits and gravy and no one does them better than here. The sausage is made in Linda's home kitchen and, as is everything else, brought in ready to finish when you place your order.
Besides the biscuits and gravy, a half order is available plus a giant breakfast burrito, Waffle with nuts or strawberries and cream, Freshly baked quiche with a to-die-for crust and Big Cinnamon rolls with cream cheese icing.
There are also bagels toasted with cream cheese or butter, just biscuits, or fruit or grits or eggs or bacon or sausage.
Baja biscuits began with a limited menu and limited hours. Due to the eatery's growing popularity, the restaurant is now open Tuesdays through Saturdays from 8 in the morning until 130 in the afternoon. And recognizing that some people just don't like breakfast foods and being from the South of America, Y'all can munch a barbeque pork sandwich with coleslaw instead.
They also sell the sausage in bulk for you to cook at home.
Baja Biscuits, Dominguez 1251 and 5 de Mayo 155 9619.

- Before gaining control of my life, I created pastries for some cool places in California: San Ysidro Ranch in Montecito, Brix Restaurant in Napa and The Lodge in Sonoma. Now I am the chef/owner of Pan D' Les bakery in La Paz. My personal favorite is the Multigrano loaf, full of crunchy seeds and a nice chewy crust.
