Rosa’s Cafe Breakfast Menu (Updated)

The new breakfast menu at Rosa’s Cafe.

Earlier this year I wrote about the new breakfast menu being served at Rosa’s Cafe (a chain in Texas, principally in Western Texas), and yesterday I wrote that they appears to be offering dine-in breakfast service. I got the chance to try the new breakfast menu today, and I think I found a new favorite breakfast spot. It isn’t the same as my favorite greasy spoon breakfasts (regardless of cuisine), but it is a great choice for a leisurely weekend breakfast with the family.

Rosa’s Cafe breakfast menu now available for dine-in?

Breakfast taco platter at Rosa’s Cafe in Texas. You can also get individual tacos.

I wrote earlier that Rosa’s Cafe (a Texas institution, particularly in the West of the state) had started a new breakfast menu. At that time, I noted that breakfast was only available via the drive-through. My family and I ate dinner tonight at the location on 191 and Faudree in Odessa, and they had several posters up about breakfast. None of those said anything about the drive through, so I asked. Eventually, somebody found a manager who understood that I was not trying to order breakfast tacos at 8 p.m. and she confirmed that the Rosa’s Cafe breakfast menu is now available for dine-in. There seemed to be some confusion on my question, and I cannot personally confirm it. However, a lot of site to this traffic is generated from that previous post. I wanted to let everybody know, and I will confirm one way or the other as soon as I can.

UPDATE- Please see my post from September 22 for the new breakfast menu and details on their dine-in breakfast.

No Royal Caribbean MLife points for table play

I wrote earlier that I enjoyed the casino on the Royal Caribbean Liberty of the Seas. There were some problems, but Casino Royale gave me a steeply discounted fare and the casino itself was a mostly pleasant experience. One of the attractive things about it was that the points I earned onboard would transfer to MLife, thus making it easier to retain status for the next year.¬† Just one little problem with that… There are no Royal Caribbean MLife points for table play.

Rony’s Tours Roatan, Honduras

Where we waited for Rony’s Tours in Roatan, Honduras.

We were on the June 25, 2017 sailing of the Royal Caribbean Liberty of the Seas out of Galveston. One of the reasons we booked this trip was so we could stop in Roatan, Honduras. We were there two years ago and booked a trip to Maya Key, and we had a great time. This time, however, we wanted to get a little bit more adventurous and see the island itself. We contracted with Rony’s Tours¬†Roatan to do ziplining and snuba diving in Gumbalimba Park. I will review the activities themselves separately, but for now wanted to comment on the service and experience with the tour company. Continue reading “Rony’s Tours Roatan, Honduras”

American Airlines Basic Economy fares are problematic for business

A few months back, American Airlines announced a new class of fares aimed at those who wanted the least expensive journey possible. Called “basic economy,” it looks as if these fares use booking code/fare class B. They are cheaper than regular economy fares, and that is a great option. However, you do not get an assigned seat until check in, and you do not even get to store a bag in an overhead bin. This process is completely transparent when booking on American’s own website, but there are at least two major problems: Those whose corporate travel policies require them to book the cheapest possible fares, and those searching for fares on third party booking sites. American Airlines basic economy fares are a problem if you don’t do your own booking directly on their website. Continue reading “American Airlines Basic Economy fares are problematic for business”
