Hondurans usually have a large, hearty breakfast. It typically consists of fried eggs (whole or scrambled), refried beans, Honduran salty sour cream (mantequilla), hard olancho cheese, avocado, sweet fried plantains, and tortillas. It is common for most households to first prepare tortillas, a staple for nearly every dish, which are used throughout the rest of the day.
Other breakfast favorites include carne asada (roasted meat) and Honduran spicy sausages (chorizo). A good breakfast will be accompanied with hot, dark—in this case Honduran-grown—coffee. Honduran coffee is renowned for its delicate qualities, being grown on the slopes of the Honduran mountains over rich soils of volcanic origin. A specific brand famous for its flavour comes from the Honduran region of Marcala, others being the Copán coffee and the one grown in Ocotepeque. 
Street vendors often sell breakfast baleadas made of flour tortillas, toppings such as eggs, meat, and even pickled onions, and small tamales made of sweet yellow corn dough, called tamalitos de elote, eaten with sour cream; fresh horchata and posole is also common. "I have also seen the s treet side vendors sell hot I mean very hot tomatoes with chili peppers in the middle; you should try one of them someday."
