We used to live in Albuquerque and this was one of our favorites! The food is fresh and delicious, sandwiches, burgers, salads, soups and pastas plus seasonal dishes. Not to mention their pastries and coffee. Definition worth the trip every time.

This restaurant has outstanding salads, sandwiches, coffee, tea, etc. You order at the counter and then the food is brought to your table. When I'm in Albuquerque I always try to eat there.
