“Amazing cafe with homey environment.”
Reviewed 28 June 2014 via mobile

I had the "deb" and "Casey sunrise" this morning. The deb was an egg, ham, and cheese English muffin. It was delicious. The Casey sunrise was an orange juice, crab/raspberry, blackberry drink. It was delicious as well. The environment was very home with lounge chairs and bookshelves throughout. Only downfall is the early hours with a close time of 2:00 pm and they're closed Sunday's

“Friendly, good food”
Reviewed 5 April 2014

Very friendly owners/staff and a nice mix of locals and visitors when we stopped in. We sat at a table for lunch, but there were also comfortable chairs and couches for enjoying a cup of coffee. An interested old building and furnishings/decorations. My breakfast burrito was excellent and my husband was very happy with his sandwich choice. Good coffee also. We are glad we stopped here.

“Yummy food, cozy atmosphere, friendly service”
Reviewed 3 December 2013

After many drives through Mountainair, I finally found my way to Alpine Alley. I placed a to go order because it was near closing time, but Mary was so kind, and invited me to enjoy my lunch in the café. I'm glad I accepted her offer.

The menu is plentiful, with many affordable options so that you can customize your meal whether it's breakfast, soup, salad, sandwich or a wrap. There is a good coffee, espresso, tea and hot cocoa selection. The soup of the day, green chile stew, was homemade and yummy. The reuben sandwich was made with fresh ingredients and was delicious. There are fresh pastries; I selected a tasty blueberry scone.

All of this can be enjoyed in peaceful, warm atmosphere. There are comfy chairs and sofas, shelves filled with books, a gas log stove, and WiFi. Locally made jams and jellies, along with greeting cards, are available for purchase.

Best of all is Mary and the friendly service making a first-timer feel at home. It's worth a detour to Alpine Alley even if Mountainair isn't on your intended route. Thank you, Mary, for a great experience!

“Coming Home”
Reviewed 10 October 2013

Walking into Alpine Alley is like coming home. The friendly owners, Scott and Mary, the feel of the place is like coming home and visiting with friends. Great coffee, specialty drinks, and great sandwiches, wraps, and homemade soup. And of course, Reuben Tuesdays for those great Reuben sandwiches. You will never go wrong making this a stop on your trip through Mountainair.
