My wife and I had lunch at the "Golden Crown Panaderia" bakery on Saturday 12/20/2014. We ordered a medium Hawaiian pizza for two on whole-wheat peasant crust with red onion added to the default pineapple and Canadian Bacon toppings. With that we ordered medium coffee flavored milkshakes with whipped cream. The waiter who brought the milkshakes was superb and very... More

The tablecloths are colorful oilcloth, the staff are nurturing even when the place is busy, and the fusion of cultures here is a long way from the artificiality afflicting too much of Santa Fe. Albuquerque is real, if not glamorous, and so is Golden Crown. True to its panaderia roots, the bakery turns out melt-in-your-mouth biscochits (New Mexico's State Cookie),... More

A group of us went here and we had pizza and beer. Both were good as was the service. We did have to wait in line quite a while to place our order, but the staff was very friendly. It is a small, rustic place but comfortable. For my taste the pizza was a bit bland, the pastries okay but... More

7 emanadas, a mango coconut smoothie and vegetarian pizza for two later and I did not understand why the #1 rating. They used a syrup for the smoothie, the bread for the empanadas was a burnt and the pizza, even with green chile breading was bland. The cook came to talk with us but the girl running the register did... More

This place is a must visit in Albuquerque. Stopped by for lunch and was greeted with a really awesome cookie. Can't remember what it was called, but it was a hell of a way to be welcomed! You can smell the baking bread from the parking lot. I got the Lobo pizza and a few of the savory empanadas, would... More

The smell is heavenly as you approach the place and once inside the the menu choices make it hard to choose. We ate here a few times before leaving town. The... More

We dropped by the bakery one afternoon to get some sweets - cookies and sweet empanadas. The place is really cute. I loved the atmosphere although just know if is pretty small inside but has a large outdoor patio. The staff is very friendly and welcoming. The cookies are very good but the empanadas were not to my liking, Probably... More
