Took the family to this little cafe right off the highway. Read the reviews online, and we agree with the positive ones. The pancakes were good, but the breakfast burrito was awesome. Green chile is everywhere here in this area, and we have tried it at numerous places in Ruidoso. However, the green chile sauce at Alto Cafe (on the burrito) was far and away the best we have ever encountered.
The environment is cozy and quaint with a western flair. Our server, who was very attentive and personable, turned out to be the owner. We had a nice chat with her. Food is very good, prices are very reasonable...not much more you can ask for in a little cafe!
Cafe Alto was the best dining experience we had during our vacation.
