“winning? um no try Loosing”
Reviewed 24 September 2013

This isn't a real coffee house, its a hipster, lgbt, gutterpunk, and street kid hangout. still.. despite gentrification this place is the chancre score on harvard. Nothing but bums soke and body odor from cheba hut to the zone thanks to this place and the 1$ cup of coffee that makes people feel inclined to inflict their conditions on society. The girls here have more hair under arms and legs than me, however still dress in skimpy clothing, so dont bring your appetite, not that you'll need it. the green chile tastes like oregano, and the red chile while tasting like dirt induces digestive distress, the staff seems more interested in each others personal hang ups than providing quality service.

This place went to the dogs the moment Q staff theater purchased it to cannibalize for their mediocre half cocked productions. Matt the self taught roaster, while the nicest guy, cant roast coffee, he can only burn it.
All of the food is microwaved, the blue haired girl in the back let that slip once in conversation, which explains the quality, but even if they served real food, re-trained rude inept counter staff, it still wouldnt be enough, because of the vagrant lay abouts that are allowed to harass customers for ciggarettes and change all day.

The only good thing here are the baked goods, the 2 ladies who work at night to make all those delicacies have a talent better utilized elsewhere.

If you want a good cup of coffee in the area go to Fans of film on yale and garfield, or michael thomas on carlisle, or java joes on park down town are all great choices.

“This red chile is not edible”
Reviewed 2 September 2013

Disgusting excuse for red chile on my "breakfast enchilada". You should taste what you're serving people, and if it sucks, stop serving it and stick to coffee and pastries. The cashier was snobby from the start so I didn't feel comfortable giving any feedback but damn, what a bad experience.

Don't go here. There are places who care and make food that's worth money. Better to support businesses we want to keep around.

“Don't order here.”
Reviewed 16 May 2013 via mobile

Had various drinks on the menu ordered a Moca Shake was told the Kitchen was closed. Did not know it took a kitchen to make a drink? Don't go here!

“Dirty, Smelly, Homeless street kid hangout”
Reviewed 25 October 2012

This place is horrible, but if you only have a dollar and bring your own cup, you can get it filled with this over roasted charred brew. the problem is every homeless hippie in the area knows this. a never ending sea of horrible smells, rude bums, and constant pestering for either cigarettes or change. The food is hit or miss, if the girl with blue hair is working rest assured your meal wont suck, otherwise order quiche or a baked good. the bakers are great. terrible coffee, smelly people, and rude staff. if thats your thing go for it, ill go to one of the many other friendly shops.

“Service help sucks”
Reviewed 15 July 2012 via mobile

Stopped in to get a special coffee for the road. Barista Steve and others were rude, non caring jerks. Not like the last time I visited in 09. Screw this place. They only cater to local students and hate tourists. Leaving Albuquerque, my old home with a nasty taste in my mouth; not the coffee, the service.
