Winner of Best Casual Dining, Best Veggie Burger, Best Toast, Best Healthy Breakfast and Best Desserts in our restaurant polls. Sure, you go in thinking you’ll be good and get a skinny latte, scrambled egg whites and a side of turkey and green chile sausage, but five minutes later somebody’s saying “eclair” and the voice is coming from your mouth. But, boy, do they taste good. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

The indoor dining space is tiny, but the rambling breezeway and courtyard at this EDo café offer a refreshingly peaceful setting for enjoying the Albuquerque weather in the company of some great New Mexican food. Lunchtime fare includes sandwiches and paninis, rounded out with a full roster of espresso drinks. (Alibi Staff, March 6, 2014)

Winner of Best Casual Dining, Best Veggie Burger, Best Toast, Best Healthy Breakfast and Best Desserts in our 2008 restaurant poll. Sure, you go in thinking you’ll be good and get a skinny latte, scrambled egg whites and a side of turkey and green chile sausage, but five minutes later somebody’s saying “eclair” and the voice is coming from your mouth.

Gold Rush Cupcakes

Monday-Friday 10 am - 3 pm (hours can change without notice)

4.25 rating (12 votes)
Moist cake, exceptional cream cheese frosting, and inspired flavors and decorations (the adorable “breakfast” cupcake is topped with a diminutive stack of “pancakes,” strips of “bacon” and a sunny-side-up “egg”) are a treasure on their own. Wholesome and affordable sandwiches, a staggering menu of “create your own cupcake” options, and daily specials are just the icing on the cake. (Alibi Staff, June 16, 2011)

Java Joe’s

Albuquerque NM

Meals Served: BreakfastLunch

3.7 rating (20 votes)
According to one of our readers, Java Joe’s is “the last of a dying breed.” There are indeed “few choices left to get that cool Haight-Ashbury ’60s feeling.” Don’t get the wrong idea, though, this neighborhood coffee shop isn’t overflowing with hippies. It attracts a diverse crowd of cyclists, artists, musicians, hipsters and grownups just looking for a cuppa joe (albeit one with in-house roasted beans). The food is simple and satisfying, from freshly baked scones to waffles, burritos, sandwiches and salads, and the sidewalk seating is definitely for the dogs. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Roma Bakery and Deli

Meals Served: BreakfastLunch

Downtown chowhounds can enjoy a light, simple and delicious breakfast or lunch at the Roma Bakery and Deli. Choose three salads from the deli case (the spicy tuna is a must-try) or get the Magnífica deli-style sandwich filled with salami, pepperoni and turkey topped with balsamic vinaigrette for a filling meal at a great price. As a bonus, Oscar tucks away a homemade cookie for dessert, or you can eyeball other fresh bakery treats behind the glass to take for later. Delish. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Modeled after a New York loft, Slate Street’s wine bar has an ultra-hip, modern, minimalist feel. This wine list is rhythmic, flowing and poetic, and it’s the most pleasurable to read and easiest to comprehend in Albuquerque. The wines are listed by style“just a little sweet,” “ABC: Anything But Chardonnay” or “sexy, elegant, austere”not varietal or region. Demystifying the label like this makes it easy for patrons to pair wine and food. The listings are simple, but not simplistic. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Forget everything you know about typical diners. Add class, upscale furnishings and a larger price tag, and then you’ll have the Standard Diner. They have oysters, fine wines and homemade desserts, and some interesting twists on ordinary fare like meatloaf and mac and cheese. The service is doting, the view of our beloved Huning Highland is representative and if you need a restaurant to take your boss to, try kissing his rings while downing a nice glass of Port. It might make it a little easier. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

This bright and colorful café caters primarily to Downtown office workers (Weekdaysget it?). We like that it has substantial salads and New Mexican fare to choose from that hit the spot. The selection of housemade baked goods is huge and very tempting. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

A whole room at this shop is dedicated to displaying wedding cakes, its forté. Kids' cakes can be adorned with anything from Shrek to Kermit the Frog. Basic sheet cakes can be ordered to serve anywhere from 15 to 96 guests (starting at $18.50). The cookie selection is worth testing, especially the Chinese almond and lemon coconut.

As you’re already well aware, Buffett's Candies is home to the largest candy cane this side of the Mississippi. (Admit it, you’ve always wanted to pop in and see if it’s got melon-sized bonbons to boot.) All the candies are made fresh, with real butter, cream and sugar, and if there are piñons in it, you can be sure they came from New Mexico. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

You can’t miss the pink, green and purple neon cross that adorns Helen’s Bakery, just north of Lomas. There you’ll find rows of Mexican pastries, cookies and rolls tucked away inside glass cases or cooling on a big metal rack up front. If you don’t speak Spanish, here’s how it all works: Walk up to the register, grab a pair of tongs and a cafeteria tray and load up on sweet treats. A little café serves savory Mexican snacks like tacos and chicharrones by the pound.

It's a wonder this place isn't made of gingerbread with candy-cane columns and poured-sugar windows. You'll find everything you might ever need to make magically delicious sweet things at The Specialty Shopcookie cutters, cake pans, sprinkles in every color of the rainbow, doilies, lollipop molds, candy boxes, wedding cake supplies. The best part is that you can go up to the counter with a random object and say, “Hi, I'm thinking of making [insert name of wickedly difficult, obscure sweet here]. What do I need for that?” They'll hook you up with all the proper ingredients and then ask if you need a recipe. Now that's service. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Winner of Best Casual Dining, Best Veggie Burger, Best Toast, Best Healthy Breakfast and Best Desserts in our restaurant polls. Sure, you go in thinking you’ll be good and get a skinny latte, scrambled egg whites and a side of turkey and green chile sausage, but five minutes later somebody’s saying “apple pie with ice cream” and the voice is coming from your mouth.

This mother-daughter bakery specializes in special occasion cakes, some boxed lunches and a surprisingly large selection of mini-cupcakes filled with ethereal creams, berries and other unexpected delights. The cupcakes look less than perfect, but everything else is down patthe flavors and textures are just how we like ’em and among the very best we’ve had. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

You can't help but pick out this bakery's fabulous-looking treats from the crowd. Luckily for you, these cakes and cookies actually taste as good as they look. Unluckily for you, they’re open only by appointment, but the space has plenty of wedding and party supplies to make up for it. If you’re pressed for time, try placing an order (for pick-up or shipping) online instead at patisseriec.com. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

There may be times in your life when chocolate seems like your only friend. But look at what a good friend chocolate has been. It covers pretzels for you. It makes truffles for you. And you never have to wonder if it really loves you, because it always does. Floor-to-ceiling shelves boast gift baskets and bags, chocolate sculptures and molded items, giant "kisses," and sugar-free assortments. A chilled candy case shimmers with an assortment of chocolate truffles, creams and caramels sold by the piece. The counter is heaped with our favorite items, mostly chocolate poured over salty, crunchy things like pretzels, popcorn, nuts and cookies. Also, look for chocolate-covered strawberries and Taos Cow ice cream in eight flavors. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Meals Served: Lunch

4.5 rating (6 votes)
All of the dishes at Ariana come with a hefty portion of white basmati rice dusted with tart, purple sumac powder (a shaker of which accessorizes each table). The dishes also all come with a green, mustardy chutney of cilantro and walnuts; a sauce that relies on housemade yogurt; a salad of diced tomato, cucumber and onion; and a slice of flatbread, which is baked twice a week on Wednesdays and Saturdays. Don’t go if you’re in a hurry. There could be a guy in front of you buying lamb tongues or pickled garlic heads that need to be fished out of the vat. When you order, much of the meal is made from scratch. But there’s no need to stay planted at your table while you waitinteresting grocery items like Bulgarian feta, organic Afghani figs, chickpea cookies and vats of grapeseed oil beg for your inspection.

Winner of Best Cupcakes in our most recent restaurant poll. With a rotating baking schedule of 32 cake and frosting combos, this place is bound to have a cupcake that calls to you. The “Monkeybutter” (banana cake topped with butterscotch buttercream) will have you swinging from a tree with its moist crumb and lightly flavored icing. Everything is baked from scratch and nothing less than real butter gets mixed into the frosting. Closed Sundays and Mondays. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)
