“Good neighborhood coffee house”

Michael Thomas Coffee Co
Ranked #19 of 68 Coffee & Tea in Albuquerque
Restaurant details
Reviewed 16 November 2013

This is truly a neighborhood coffee house in a largely residential neighborhood. They have some food that is brought in -- rolls, pastries, etc. -- but the excellent coffee is their forte. The place is cozy but the clients, largely from the neighborhood, is friendly. There is outdoor seating scattered around.

Though the coffee and espresso at Michaels is fine. Not exceptional by any means. The store is packed with few chairs a few tables and customers like a can of sardines. Not relaxing. Thanks for reading. The Bike Chaplain

Great coffee and didn't look at me funny when I asked for a dry cappuccino. I didn't try any of the baked goods, but they looked amazing!

went there with my wife recently. this is a classic neighborhood coffeehouse; but unlike most, it is actually in the middle of a residential neighborhood away from other commercial activity.
it is in a compound with other culturally related businesses on an anonymous street in south eastern Albuquerque. the buildout is sweet, with an intimate indoors and a lovely patio protected from the street and sun. they roast their own coffee and generally seem to know what they are doing. they have a limited set of pastries (didn't look that great or fresh). the staff was nice and personable. my only real complaint is that they don't know how to steam milk quietly--this is easy if you hold the vessel in the right way--if you don't it sounds like a jet engine at the nearby kirkland air base. that said; i really loved the vibe here and would come back in a minute.
