Charming bohemian vibe. The cookies and empanadas are great but if you arrive after noon you risk having a very small selection of the baked goods- everything seems fresh and we haven't been disappointed!

We went wanting to get some treats before we left ABQ. They were out of pan dulce and were almost out of empanadas and cookies. We took some limon flautas, Mexican wedding cookies, and empanadas. Everything had a slight licorice taste to it and I don't like licorice. Maybe it was because it was the end of the day and... More

When you first walk into this small bakery you are welcomed with a smile and a free cookie! The lady at the counter was so friendly and gave us the best customer service we've ever had!! We had order their famous green chile bread. It was fresh, good, and had just the right amount of spice! Would love to go... More

So...I fell prey to all the hype about how great the pizza is here and (being the foodie and pizza expert that I am) I just HAD to go get one. The place has absolutely NO charm or interest on the inside or outside...it's a dive! I think there was one or maybe two tables inside...you're almost forced to take... More

Stopped in for bread to go and walked out with a ton of amazing baked goods. The fruit empanadas are to die for, the cookies are the best I have ever had. The chili cheese bread is a must have if you are within 100 miles of here.

As a native Burqueño, I've been here for several years and can't seem to break the habit. They have excellent baristas, delicious baked goods, and highly addictive pizza.

We read the reviews and we're not disappointed. Loved the free cookie when placing the order and as a pleasant surprise when our pizza arrived! We were hungry after a day of travel in the car and went for dinner with the young kids. The good was amazing. Had one pizza with Canadian bacon, and another with the special Green... More

I gave Golden Crown a 4 instead of a 5 because when we ordered our Veggie Pizza (which was good but not outstanding pizza) we were totally bummed out when we were told they were out of their special green chili pizza dough for the crust. It was 12:30 on a Wednesday so we couldn't believe they didn't have this... More

Loved it from the moment we walked through the door. Took a ton of bread home with us. We are now enjoying breads and cookies we brought home with us.

This place understands what quality truly means. It's the food, it's the service, it's the character. Golden Crown has all of this. Chris the owner is amazing. He excels at making the customer happy from the moment you walk in until you cart your now full tummy to your vehicle. The Green Chili pizza pie is amazing. The coffee will... More
