While the dishes were familiar (i.e.-soups, sandwiches, hamburgers, etc), the taste and quality were beyond that. I had a chicken salad sandwich that was really good and had a unique flavor with a hint of fresh dill. My husband thoroughly enjoyed his burger and we had to fight over the one piece of strawberry cheesecake cake that we devoured. The atmosphere is like a Panera Bread with Barnes & Noble reading material and free Wi-Fi.

A fun Place to have breakfast or lunch. Large menu, will take time to find what you want, but worth the time

Get the beignet!!! It was heavenly. Very good baked goods - we bought a large array to bring to our friend's house and were not disapointed. Also shared a salad. This is a cafe with multiple locations.

I had three meals here during an eight-day visit to Albuquerque, and it was the first suggestion two friends made independently on where to go for breakfast. The breakfast burrito is big, and keeps its texture in its Christmas sauce. The burgers are fine (bacon and avocado), the coffee good. A bright, open and yet pretty quiet place to do work online; a sheltered petio, too, with fire pit. Dogs welcome, and a superb bookstore next door.

Arrive before 11:45am, as there seemed to be a good-sized midday lunch rush. Take advantage of the discount "frequent visitor" card for a $5 coupon after $50 spent.

I enjoyed the food so much that I ate here twice during a recent 3 day stay in Albuquerque in a nearby hotel. Fresh salads, sandwiches, Asian noodle fusion with stir fried veggies tossed in pan fired noodles, ginger, lemongrass sauce, chicken, yummy! Highly recommended
