About
Tecolote Cafe was started in 1980 by Bill and Alice Jennison with a desire to feed guests great meals, affordably, with superior service. Mr. Bill and Alice's recipes have been pleasing palettes for 31 years. In May of 2010, sadly, we lost Mr. Bill after a long and accomplished life. Since August 2010, Katherine Adkins (Bill and Alice's daughter) and her husband Matt Adkins have been doing their best to honor Mr. Bill and Ms. Alice's vision in carrying on the family business. Sadly we also lost Ms.Alice in December of 2012. We offer a varied menu focusing primarily on New Mexican breakfast and lunch cuisine, as well as some American favorites.We bake all of our breads in house as well as our

Everyone there helped us to make sure we were well cared for. Food was delicious. The juevos came with a few sides. Carne adovada quesadilla special was flavorful. The bread basket was homemade yum. Owls adorn the inside everywhere. Enjoy!

I love the bread basket. They bake their bread on-site and it is great. The combo plate is enough food for two. And the chile is wow hot. Be sure you have your ice water handy.

We went there for breakfast and were more than satisfied. Food was really good and we got big portions. All for a very low price. Our waiter was such a nice and attentive guy. Great!
