This ray of sunshine in Huning Highland serves gourmet breakfast and lunch made with local ingredients, sells housemade English muffins and has a mini-shop filled with goodies like honey, jams, mustards and vinegars, not to mention non-edibles like cook books, serving vessels and cards. The hot and cold sandwiches are dandy and come with twee sides of sliced bread-and-butter pickles and fruit salad. There’s also a large, shaded patio and incredible housemade cupcakes. Team this up with an espresso bar, wine service and “Sangria Saturdays,” and the power of triumvirate treats awaits you. Voted Best Brunch for 2013. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Marble Brewery opened its doors in the spring of 2008, and since then it’s become a favorite haunt of Burque beer fans. Go in for a flight—10 little glasses of every beer on tap—and taste the meticulously brewed rainbow, each beer distinct and complex. Six-packs, bombers, growlers and kegs are good to go.

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)

Helen’s Bakery

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 Shop—cookie 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)

Meals Served: Lunch

4.02 rating (31 votes)
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 pat—the flavors and textures are just how we like ’em and among the very best we’ve had. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Nantucket Shoals is just down the road from Whole Foods but often stocks items that the big store's seafood department does not. Call or stop in for fresh fish, soft shell crabs, roe, compound butters and more. Ask about the housemade fish stock. (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)

Albuquerque - Midtown

Alpine Sausage Kitchen

2800 Indian School NE (Midtown)
Albuquerque NM
(505) 266-2853
Tues-Fri: 9am-5:30pm Sat: 9am-5pm Closed Sunday & Monday (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: BreakfastLunchDinner
Nearby Theater: Guild Cinema (See Film Times)

4.11 rating (31 votes)
You have to love a place that makes its own hot dogs. Properly known as Vienna sausages, they're just one of more than 25 different kinds of sausages made at this 35-year-old neighborhood shop. Also popular are the andouille (used for gumbo) and white bratwurst (made with pork and veal), though you'll naturally be curious about Alpine's head cheese (not nearly as gross as it sounds) and blood and tongue sausage (ditto). Look for house-smoked hams and bacon, several kinds of Black Forest ham, roast beef, pastrami and European cheeses. If you have to wait in line, use your time to scan the shelves for gooseberry jam, German pickles, Norwegian breads and other Northern European delicacies. Don't forget to ask about the beef jerky and beef sticks. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Ariana Halal Market

607 San Mateo NE (Midtown)
Albuquerque NM
(505) 255-1325
arianamarket.com
10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Saturday; Sunday 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: Lunch

4.75 rating (4 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 wait—interesting grocery items like Bulgarian feta, organic Afghani figs, chickpea cookies and vats of grapeseed oil beg for your inspection.

3.22 rating (51 votes)
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)

Meals Served: BreakfastLunch

2.7 rating (23 votes)
Combining his daughters’ names—Sara and Tori—Tully’s owner Johnny Camuglia came up with Saratori’s, then put to use a wealth of family Italian baking recipes. Limone farfalla (crumbly lemon bows), buccellati biscotto (rolled cookies filled with figs), buttery, shell-shaped sfogliatelle with hundreds of flaky ripples and an orange rind-and-ricotta cheese center, and albicocca biscotti (apricot-stuffed biscuits) are just some of the goodies to be found in Camuglia's cases. All are delicious. Closed Sundays and Mondays. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

This small Italian delicatessen is jam-packed with enough imported and domestic meats, cheeses and specialty items to turn any kitchen into an authentic cucina Italiana. At the meat counter you'll find fresh prosciutto, salami, house-made sausage, and a variety of veal, beef and pork cuts. Cheeses run the gamut from humble staples like Parmesan, Pecorino Romano and fresh Mozzarella to fancier formaggio like Fontina, Gorgonzola and Locatelli. Step over to the lunch counter for a quick Italian snack made with ingredients you know are top-notch. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Albuquerque - Nob Hill

La Montañita Co-op

3500 Central Ave SE (Nob Hill)
Albuquerque NM
(505) 265-4631

Mon-Sun: 7:30am-10pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: BreakfastLunchDinner
Nearby Theater: Guild Cinema (See Film Times)

4.35 rating (18 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. For a delicious vegan dessert, stick with the chocolate Amazon cake, layered with luscious, fudge frosting. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

The chile is always hot and flavorful, and it’s especially good on the breakfast burritos. This is traditional New Mexican food at dirt-cheap prices. Sit down and eat, or just do take-out. Bulk foods also available. Closed Sunday. (Alibi Staff, September 7, 2011)

Cravin’ Cookies ... and More!

10420 Fourth Street NW (North Valley)
Albuquerque NM
(505) 298-2597
cravincookiesandmore.com
Mon-Fri: 9am-5pm Sat: 9am-4pm Closed Sunday (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: BreakfastLunch

4.45 rating (11 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. Winner of Best Cookies in recent Best of Burque Restaurants polls. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)
