Welcome to the thirteenth Edible Eat of the Week! A recurring series, Edible Eat of the Week celebrates the bounty of Long Island by showcasing special, seasonal eats and the people who make them. 

The Eat: Breakfast in Sag Harbor, Latin-style.

The Place: K Pasa.

The Story: Sometimes, the Hamptons feel like a veritable wasteland when it comes to reliable breakfast options. While a Goldberg’s bagel never disappoints, sometimes you just want a sit-down affair, and there aren’t a whole lot of restaurants serving breakfast to the East End masses, especially after season has officially ended.

Never fear, breakfast eaters. The K Pasa team is here to save the day.

The Sag Harbor restaurant has added a new breakfast menu to their rotation, beginning at 8 each morning, with tacos, buns, toasts, and other assorted breakfast foods that are sure to make you go “yum.” Sure, the requisite avocado toast is there (served with shaved radish and cilantro), and vegetarians can also opt for a mushroom toast (sautéed mushrooms and herbs piled high on 7-grain bread). But breakfast tacos? I’m 100 percent in for the BLT taco, served with roasted tomato, and the Sloppy Rizo taco, with a house-made chorizo, avocado, and pickled jalapeño.

There’s a host of inventive bowls, too. The Full Fritters bowl features corn fritters, smoked salmon, poached eggs, and shaved fennel. Not to be outdone, the Sag Hash is a blissful combination of sweet potatoes, mushrooms, onions, spinach, tomatoes, and poached eggs. Sweet starters can opt, instead, for the overnight power oats, featuring coconut milk, seeds, nuts, dried apricots, blueberries, and chia seeds. The Milk & Honey is another sweet-but-healthful offering: a yogurt panna cotta, served with blueberries, honey, and puffed quinoa. Or, for a true exercise in decadence, try the chocolate chip pancakes, served with a sauce made from dulce de leche,

K Pasa will also be serving juices and smoothies for the morning teetotaler (and mimosas, passionfruit bellinis, and bloody Marys for the morning imbiber). Long story short: Breakfast is a meal that requires your attention. And K Pasa does the meal justice.
