Sure, you go in thinking you’ll be good and get a skinny latte, scrambled local egg whites and a side of turkey and green chile sausage, but five minutes later somebody’s saying “milkshake” and the voice is coming from your mouth. This Duke City fixture prides itself on using locally sourced ingredients like eggs and greens and offers free coffee refills. Beware for the irresistible carrot cake. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

This sunny café occupies the sweet spot in The Village at Silver and Wellesley vacated by Café Giuseppe. Giuseppe regulars will be happy to know Limonata still offers killer espresso, now paired with a large array of mouth-slavering Italian treats. Try the prosciutto panini, the antipasto platter for two or stock up on authentic Italian groceries in the market. Don’t forget to order a Nutella or strawberry jam crepe. You’ll have the pleasure of watching the cooking process right before your eyes. (Alibi Staff, December 10, 2012)

Far more spacious than its Carlisle counterpart, the Nob Hill Michael Thomas offers plenty of seating and a lovely outdoor patio. Of course, the café still serves the same delicous coffee, as well as tasty baked goods. (Alibi Staff, October 8, 2014)

Ayurvedic cuisine works with your body’s natural energies and constitution to create “soul” food that’s on a whole new plane. Winners of Best Vegetarian in our poll several years running, Annapurna is the devoted to vegan and vegetarian cuisine. The food is satisfying but never heavy and, well, you just feel better after eating there. The lunch special is a good bet with a spicy Indian soup, rice, wheat-free chapatis (a flatbread cousin of naan) and your choice of a vegetable entrée for about eight bucks. Check out the Chi Happy hour for 50% off a cup of chai from 3-5 pm daily. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Cravin’ Cookies ... and More!

Tues-Fri 9am-5pm Sat 9am-4pm Closed Sunday (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: BreakfastLunch

4.45 rating (12 votes)
Easily the most excessively punctuated business title in Albuquerque, Cravin’ Cookies ... and More! is a cozy bakery nestled in the lush greenery of the Far North Valley. Café-style seating indoors and out, potted plants and a wooden display hutch create a warm, homey environment that begs visitors to sit and sip a cup of tea. Barb, the carbohydrate crafter, bakes up at least a dozen different cookies a day, along with several pies, cakes and tortes. Cookies are available in mini and regular sizes, and there’s always a plate of samples to help you make up your mind—but may we suggest the red chile chocolate cookies, chocolate chip cookies, toasted coconut pie ... and skipping lunch and going straight for the flourless chocolate torte.

If you’ve got a hankering for a seasoned steak sandwich or some fresh fish tacos, give Eli’s Place (formerly known as Sophia’s Place) a try. The very friendly service and eclectic fare make the eatery a true North Valley gem and one of the best restaurants in Albuquerque. Chow down on a hearty sandwich on Eli’s shaded patio, or eat an organic egg omelet (served with fresh salad greens and papitas) inside the cozy adobe walls. The carnitas and red chile are wonderful, as are the pancakes.

Flying Star’s blueberry buttermilk pancakes are a guaranteed silver bullet for your behemoth-sized sweet tooth. They’re friggin’ enormous, fluffy and filling. Throw in a side of green chile turkey sausage and a beautiful North Valley patio, and your crudo is history. Or come back in the evening and try any one of the burgers, which you can wash down with a beer. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

You have enough to worry about without the stress of not knowing where your next baked good is going to come from. Have a buttery fruit pastry, a slice of pie or buy a loaf of that nice, spongy white bread to take home and tear off chunks to stuff in your mouth in a secret corner of the kitchen. We won’t tell. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Itsa Italian Ice

215 Phoenix Ave NW (at Second Street) (North Valley)
Albuquerque NM 87107

Tues- Sat: 11am-4pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinnerOpen Late

4.94 rating (10 votes)
Itsa Italian Ice is an old favorite for many Burqueños. Originally located on Lomas years ago, Itsa was—and is—for kids and grown-ups alike. Diners can choose from several fruity flavors like cantaloupe, lemon, cherry, watermelon, black raspberry, lime, grape or banana, as well as other flavors like chocolate or "blue moon" (cotton candy). Each tastes remarkably like the food it was named for, and the portion sizes are enormous. On the hot side, there are hamburgers, dogs, and a Philly cheese steak that’s tender and visibly marbled, made with steak that actually tastes like steak. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

La Montañita Co-op

2400 Rio Grande NW (North Valley)
Albuquerque NM 87104

Mon-Sun: 7am-10pm (hours can change without notice)

4.22 rating (10 votes)
The phrase “grocery café” typically conjures visions of orangey heat lamp chicken and Chinese food that’s been marinating in a pool of grease since the Yang Dynasty. Fortunately for us, La Montañita Co-op is not your typical grocery store. Specializing in local, organic and otherwise natural food products, the deli is no exception and doesn’t disappoint in taste or selection. The deli folks will make a hearty sandwich to your liking or pick up a quick pint of one of the tasty hot or cold spreads and salads. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Pastian's Bakery

3320 Second Street NW (North Valley)
Albuquerque NM
(505) 345-7773
Mon-Fri: 6:30am-5:00pm Sat: 7:30am- 3:30pm Closed Sunday (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: Breakfast

4.23 rating (16 votes)
Family-owned for 35 years, Pastian's offers everything from breads and pies to pastries and cookies. Operating as a retail and wholesale bakery, much of its business is with hotels and restaurants, but a visit here to the small café with friendly service is well worth the trip. It's cheap, too, with pastries, empanadas and Danishes all under $1. The cherry turnovers perfectly balance crisp cinnamon sugar pastry and chewy fruit filling. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Mon-Fri 11am-6pm Sat noon-4pm (hours can change without notice)

4.42 rating (7 votes)
“No shortcuts," says master chocolatier Scott Van Rixel. And he means it. A rigorous work ethic is the guiding principal behind the confections made at Chocolate Cartel, which Van Rixel co-owns with his brother, Tim. "We try to do everything as old-school and authentic as we can." Most of what Chocolate Cartel produces is European-style truffles, flourless chocolate cakes, chocolate-covered nuts, bars, even made-from-scratch gelato—all roasted, rolled, dipped and packed by hand. But tucked in there is a Mayan drinking chocolate based on an ancient formula. With freshly ground almonds, cinnamon and red chile, "It's what the king would drink," Van Rixel says.

Donut Mart is the home of our new favorite, the “golden coconut” cake doughnut. This circle of goodness melts in your mouth, and its toasty coconut coating adds a delightful crunch. The custard-filled Boston cream wins points with tasters, too. The PB & J and buttermilk cake are also popular. (Alibi Staff, October 13, 2011)

Fratelli Bistro

Fratelli's reincarnation revives the menu and familiar decor from the former Lomas deli with oven-baked subs, pasta platters, pizza and their popular calzones. Add a side salad or a Fratelli antipasto to complete your meal, or sample the pastries and donuts (made fresh daily). (Alibi Staff, October 29, 2012)

3.5 rating (38 votes)
La Quiche is an authentic French bakery from husband-and-wife team Sabine Pasco and Bruno Barachin. (Bruno is from Bordeaux, where he achieved Master Baker status years ago.) In addition to a large menu of sandwiches, pâtés, soups and stews (the bourguignonne is served in a house-made pastry shell), La Quiche sells loaves of country bread, fantastically complicated bread showpieces and viennoiseries—flaky, buttery pastries like brioche, croissants and pain au chocolate that traditionally came from Vienna. They use imported French butter, and it shows. The fruit tarts are the best in town. You'll also find a catering menu and a variety of quiches, ready to go for workers with little time for a proper lunch. Try their poached eggs benedict or poached eggs florentine from their brunch menu. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

2.9 rating (26 votes)
If the café’s mural of French street life doesn't quite make you forget that you're in an Albuquerque strip mall, closing your eyes and tasting a flaky blueberry cheese croissant might. If the croissant doesn't work, try some petits fours. Le Chantilly was voted Best French Pastries in Albuquerque, after all. But if sweets aren’t doing it for you, maybe you need something savory: Perhaps one of the daily lunch special sandwiches and a cup of espresso will do it? (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Le Paris French Bakery

1441 Eubank Blvd NE (Northeast Heights)
Albuquerque NM 87112
(505) 299-4141

The baguettes at this little Northeast Heights storefront and café are phenomenal—many of the city’s best restaurants use Le Paris as their house bread. Not familiar with French food? The friendly staff will happily steer you in the direction of one of the light breakfast and lunch offerings. Don’t skip anything involving chocolate. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

The Range Café

Do not leave The Range without ordering something involving bacon and queso, even if it means you have to get side dishes of them both. These people serve thick, meaty bacon and obviously understand the power of the dreamy, cheesy goop we call queso to transform simple breakfast items from ho-hum to hot damn! They’ve even rescued the humble bowl of oatmeal from perpetual breakfast boredom by parking a scoop of their fabulous housemade cinnamon ice cream on top of it. Don’t forget to take home a fabulous housemade tarte Tatin from the pastry case. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Donuts exotic and mundane, hot coffee and Texas-style kolaches. Justifiably lauded for their “Breaking Bad”-inspired Blue Sky donut and other equally creative specialty donuts. (Alibi Staff, October 9, 2013)
