Let's establish, first, that Cofax Coffee Shop is just as much about the burritos as it is about the coffee. Don't get us wrong: the Stumptown coffee they brew is excellent, and their draft cold brew is a refreshing summer afternoon treat. But their burritos? Hot damn. Both a chorizon and a veggie version are offered throughout the day, and the chorizo option (our favorite) features chunks of smoked potato, chorizo, cheese and eggs in one tightly wrapped and lightly grilled tortilla. You can take it to go or eat it at Cofax's narrow counter, where fellow diners might be devouring their own burrito like it's the last one they'll ever eat.

The coffee here is perfectly fine, no complaints at all. But the reason to come to this place is their breakfast burritos - fantastic and some of the best in town. I have yet to have the pastrami burrito, but their chorizo burritos and bacon burritos are out of this world - crispy in all the right place and chewy in all the right place as well. The salsa they give you with them is also excellent - even a little bit smokey too. Be prepared though, it can take quite a while for them to cook your burrito, so be prepared to wait a bit for it. But rest assured, it is absolutely worth the wait.

It's been said before, but it bears repeating — the chorizo burrito is out of this world good. It's one of those run-don't-walk type dishes that, if we're being honest, you should really stop reading and just go order it.

Cofax's chorizo burrito is everything. I have dreams about this tortilla wrapped piece of heaven, and then I promptly get in my car and drive to the tiny shop and god forbid if there are donuts there, too, because I'll also get those. I haven't been able to try the veggie version, just because the chorizo one is perfection, but I'll give it a try one of these days. I think. Maybe.
