“Great Local Spot”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 21, 2013

My wife and I found this place a few years ago when the local paper ran a short story on the bakery. We really enjoyed our first experience and since then the place has really expanded and gotten even better. The staff has always been friendly and accommodating. We've only ever eaten pizza with deserts and have yet to experience anything less than stellar food and service. We're big fans of the Golden Crown's Combination pizza on green chile crust (though the blue corn crust is great too.) They hand out biscochitos freely and their empanadas are fresh and tasty (love the cherry and lemon!). A nice break from the chain pizza joints.

“It's ok”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 13, 2013

Our first experience was ok. The pizza order was wrong, we wanted the green chile cheese crust, didn't get it. The pizza itself was ok. The biscochitos and empanadas were good. If I'm in a pinch, I'll go back, but I won't make a conscious effort.

“Great biscochitos. ”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 2, 2013 via mobile

Stopped in for some tea and biscochitos. Left with four dozen. This place is crowded, funky and obviously beloved by the locals. It's hard to see how it's the second best restaurant in Albuquerque so I suspect price plays a role. Worth a stop.

“Best Christmas Biscochito”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2013

Not only is the pizza great; this this the best place in town to get biscochitos. And if you don't know what that is, they will give you a free sample with your pizza.

“Panaderia and Much More”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 20, 2013

Golden Crown is a small neighborhood bakery tucked into Old Town Albuquerque. It's off the beaten path, but well worth the effort to find.

They specialize in traditional Mexican baked goods (pan dulces, empanadas, etc.), but also feature pizzas with toppings sitting atop a crust laced with green chili.....a pleasant surprise to your taste buds. As well, they have a killer espresso chocolate shake that will simultaneously feed your sweet tooth and keep you wide awake for a good while afterwards. There's not a lot of parking or seating, so you have to approach lunch with the appropriate laid-back attitude. This is the Land of Manana after all, so get with the program!

The staff are great and the customers full of chatter. It's a lovely place to snag a bite and step back into an old-school bakery/restaurant. Go here!
