This is a shabby-chic furniture place (well, maybe mostly shabby) that is unlike any other in the area. Not a taco or pinto bean in sight.... The menu is limited, but includes some great wraps and light salads, as well as having an espresso machine -- only one in town as I write this. Mary usually has home made soup in the crock, and the soups run from pretty average something-vegetable to some knock out of the park options like steak and potato. Breakfast is served all day, and the small breakfast burrito is the best deal in town. Service can be maddeningly slow if you are in a hurry, but they've been much better recently.

Good food at a reasonable price. Scott and Mary, the owners, are great. Locals hang out here and you can always make a new friend or find out what's happening around town. Mary's home made cream soda is awesome. Come to town, have a meal, view the different mosaics, and visit the ruins nearby.

As visitors to the US , this struck us as being a great village cafe. Folks came in and out, chatting, buying coffee and breakfast.

I don't know if the woman who was serving us was Deb or Mary, the earlier reviews seems to have both of these women as the owner. Whoever she was, she was so welcoming.

Breakfast was entertaining from start to finish. We were introduced to Rosie, a mate, who was sporting an Alpine Alley Purple T-shirt. As were others who came into the cafe.

We had a breakfast sandwich, no eggs over easy as mine hosts buys her eggs prescrambled in a bladder. So we had a breakfast sandwich which was absolutely fine.

There did seem to be an espresso machine but drip was the only thing on offer.   Bill came to $6 something. Very reasonable.

It was a delightful village atmosphere. All the best to Alpine Alley, may it long survive.

We discovered Alpine Alley about a year after opening and try to stop in whenever we are in Mountainiar. The menu has nice variety and the food is good and fresh, a real treat in this somewhat remote area of New Mexico. The mosaic sign and metal sculpture in front reflect the quiet but active arts community and Alpine Alley is kind of like a town square where local folks and visitors alike enjoy the food and mix for conversation. It's always a pleasure whether we are just having a quick cup of coffee or settling in for a meal. I highly recommend Alpine Alley.

In one breakfast sitting I had a great meal, learned much about the town, and even more about the people. Mary runs a great place and is more engaging than the Pope.
