This local institution is the perfect place to hang out in the morning and enjoy fresh, locally roasted coffee and a great breakfast or lunch.The food is surprisingly good and inexpensive and the abundance to seating both inside and out makes it easy to relax and talk with locals or spend some quiet time reading the paper.

This is one of Albuquerque's best kept secrets. I have been going here since my college days in the 90s, and will continue to frequent it as long as it's around. It's the place locals go to drink coffee, read a book, catch up on emails, and chat with friends. Great coffee, and really wonderful menu.

I enjoyed an hour or so in Winning Coffee, reading a great book and enjoying a good coffee. Most relaxing morning.

To me this place serves the consistently best coffee in town. Also tasty baked goods and above average burritos. A book dealer sells interesting used books a few days a week. Some might find Winner too scruffy but I like it.

Very trendy in Brick Light across from UNM on Harvard. Full of interesting people. The coffee, fruit smoothies and snacks are plentiful and quite good.

Went on a Saturday morning simply looking for a good cup of Joe. Winning nails it. The place smells like freshly roasted coffee - that vague smell of burnt popcorn and beans dated when they were roasted you know that they are serious. Interior is funky and mis- matched, but not sloppy. They serve other things of course, but I... More

I'm all in favor of suporting local businesses & indie coffee houses. As these things go, Winnings is... ok. It's good enough coffee, I guess... and the service isn't bad (not inspired, but not bad)... but the place is nothing exceptional. And they're trying really hard to turn the need for some cleaning & spritzing up the place into hipster... More

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.... More

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... More
