This is always our first stop when we fly into ABQ. Super quick and easy to get to, and they have AMAZING breakfast. We love their migas. The portions are huge and the red chili is the best.

Had heard about this place, but when I finally went there, I realized just how special it was! It’s a tiny, little neighborhood cafe that specializes in New Mexico home cooking! As a vegetarian, it makes me happy that I can get amazing New Mexican...More
