I had been here many years ago for the Chile Bread and Bischochitoes, which are fantastic. The new addition of the coffee bar and pizza menu is great! The blue corn crust on the pizza was a revelation. Not much seating inside but it wasn't too busy in the early afternoon on a weekday. Very friendly cashier.

This place is great. If you didn't know about it, you might just drive by it because it is a pretty nondescript building or you might think it is too ethnic to be comfortable. Don't make that mistake. The owner is a wonderful bread artist and one of the most friendly and accommodating people that I know. We arrived on a Thursday night...called in a pizza order and they stayed past closing until we got there. They have pizzas in regular, green chile, blue corn and multigrain. We stopped back the next morning for empanadas. We stopped again on Sunday morning for empanadas.

I wish this place was in my hometown because their breakfast pastries, breads and pizzas are amazing and Pratt Morales is a pleasant host. I will always go here whenever I am in ABQ.

This is the best coffee in Olde Town. They also have authentic Mexican and New Mexican baked goods that are divine. They grow their own greens for their sandwiches too. The outside looks funky, but the food is heavenly!

I guess my hopes were too high after reading raving reviews. The veg pizza had a really nice crust but the toppings and sauce were pretty basic. Apple empanada tasted like they used apple pie filling. Coffee (Seattles Best beans) was okay but not great. The atmosphere is basic but very cool and the staff are friendly. Outside patio is nice.
