New Blanca Blue Breakfast, Cooking Classes, Wellness & More

Garza Blanca Preserve Resort & Spa Puerto Vallarta 

  • New Breakfast at Blanca Blue 

Blanca Blue is proud to present its new breakfast menu. The main difference is a switch from a buffet style breakfast to an a-la-carte menu. Now we offer more breakfast items on the menu and our guests are going to be wowed by all the delicious new breakfast options. This is the first menu that was created with a collaboration of all the chefs and the quality is first-rate. The new breakfast at Blanca Blue is a breakfast worth getting up early for. Bocados STK will be serving the same breakfast menu as Blanca Blue. The breakfast options will also be the same at Garza Blanca Resort & Spa Los Cabos with the option to dine at Blanca Blue or Bocados STK. 
 

The breakfast menu is color coded with easy to identify symbols that help guests know which options are vegetarian, gluten free or spicy. We also have added a new GC symbol to indicate which items are part of our Gourmet Culinary options. In addition, we have added a new smoothie section.  

The Blanca Blue Sunrise is a Gourmet Culinary option. It is a nice and light breakfast choice before going hiking or kayaking. Our signature sunrise breakfast consists of delicious house granola made with cinnamon, oats, peanuts, and almonds, creamy Greek yogurt, and fresh fruit including soft bananas, blueberries, blackberries, strawberries, and grapes. If you came here for vacation and prefer to lounge around the pool instead of doing something active first thing in the morning, then you can order the Blanca Blue Sunrise as a prelude to your main breakfast choice. You can spend the whole morning taking a leisurely breakfast while you admire the stunning scenery and watch the gentle ocean waves lapping up on Garza Blanca’s pristine sandy beach. 

For the main event, we recommend the Aztec Crepe, filled with eggs, sausages, and squash bloom, and topped with a cheesy sauce. Another favorite is the Tafer Croissant consisting of egg frittata, salmon, spinach, tomato & sour curd.  

From the menu, you can still order your eggs any style and they are made to order whether you want them scrambled, poached, or fried. You can also order an omelette with your choice of ingredients. If you prefer to sample some traditional Mexican dishes, we recommend the Chilaquiles or Enfrijoladas.  

Blanca Blue is in the process of setting up chef assisted stations, which should be completed by November. These stations will offer quesadillas, omelettes, freshly baked bread and more. Rather than guests serving themselves, chefs will be there to serve you.  

Blanca Blue’s new amazing breakfast can be enjoyed in the cool comfort of the air-conditioned restaurant or out on the terrace with a front row seat to see the spectacular view.  

Garza Blanca Puerto Vallarta is also offering these experiences
