Good combination- don't you agree? We were comfortable and relaxed sitting outside munching on our well prepared salad. Mine contained a handful of roasted chickpeas and a few lovely mini falafels with dill sauce. Lovely! Boyfriend had tossed Cobb. Scrumptious, he said! Bread pudding was...More

Met my sister recently for lunch and enjoyed the relaxed pace in the heart of Albuquerque. The menu has options for all appetities, and the desert display makes it almost impossible not to order a sweet treat to accompany the meal. Service was fast and...More

Never been to any of these cafes - I was amazed at the selection they had. Breakfast all day or choose a burger...it's all your choice!

Never disappointed each and every time. Beautiful location and outdoor patio with fireplace. Extensive menu with a large variety of good, healthy and tasty selections. Bakery items are to die for!

Good food, fresh and tasty. Menu is limited. Maybe the specials could rotate more often. More meat and potatoes, my husband requests. Service is generally good, though, meal delivery can be rushed. By the time you can answer the question, "do you need anything else",...More
