Driving north on Wyoming from the freeway, you can’t help but notice this grocery/café’s vibrantly painted building. Inside, you can nibble on Middle Eastern fare ranging from kabobs to hummus to herbed tabouleh. Everything is made fresh to order. Vegetarians will appreciate the meat-free selections.

“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.

Why do we love this specialty shop and meat counter? For starters, it has an abundance of weird cuts of meat from a menagerie of animals. But Keller's also sells an impressive variety of foods that cater to people with special dietary needs. Appealing items for vegans, vegetarians, diabetics and those with wheat allergies are tucked away into every corner of the store. England, France and Germany are well represented in terms of cheese and specialty dry goods, and there are lots of organic products, too. The prepared burritos are quite good.

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. 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)

The tiny restaurant in this grocery store may not look like much, but don’t be fooled: The menu boasts some of the best falafel and shawarma sandwiches around, as well as hummus that would be worth crossing a desert for. Not only that, but the grocery has an excellent selection of halal meats, and the in-house bakery produces fresh bread daily. (Alibi Staff, May 20, 2011)

When you walk into this homey Heights café, you’ll find yourself surrounded by an array of Albuquerque’s most delectable pastries. With treats like chocolate pavlovas and lemon-meringue tartlets on hand, the temptation to skip straight to dessert may be powerful, but you’ll be doing yourself a disservice if you do. Take a deep breath and force yourself to examine the ready-made takeout food and you can walk out with things like pasta salad, Asian barbecue chicken or a quart of frozen enchilada soup, as well as the sinful confection of your heart’s desire.

If you’re used to soggy bags of Lipton, this place will be a rare and well-deserved treat. Proprietor David Edwards offers a broad range of loose-leaf and sachet teas, all imported and of excellent quality. Choose from exotic blends like Casablanca and masala chai to easily recognizable stuff like Earl Grey and English breakfast. And, yes, he even has those blooming flower teas. Ask about tastings and classes. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

If you find yourself wandering around Old Town somewhere near lunchtime, don’t hesitate to duck into this little café for a quick bite. The sandwiches will remind you of lunches your mom used to make, especially the big peanut butter and jelly. You won’t be able to resist the temptation of a cookie or two from the bakery case, so just plan on indulging.

This casual, reasonably priced eatery is located just to the northwest of the Sheraton Old Town off Rio Grande. Regular live jazz music, two patios and a spacious front specialty wine and gift shop bring wine festival flair to thirsty Burqueños year-round, while the menu is built around the Vineyard's signature wines.

This tiny shop is located on Carlisle, nestled in with several businesses that aim to perk up both body and mind. Michael Thomas doesn’t simply pour coffee and pull shots, it works from the bean up. The uncle and nephew who run this place roast all of their beans on site, meaning they can make special blends based on customer demand. Grab a well-made cup of your particular poison and head out to the courtyard. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Talin is the grandmother of all ethnic grocery stores in Albuquerque. Though the store once stocked exclusively Asian ingredients, the merchandise is expansively global with Caribbean, Indian, European, Latin American and Middle Eastern ingredients alongside the Japanese snacks, Korean condiments, Vietnamese noodles and Thai sticky rice. The freezer section and produce departments are unbeatable for the breadth and depth of unfamiliar ingredients, so set aside at least an hour for your first trip. There’s also a large, tempting prepared foods area and a maze of housewares, gifts and wine. The Talin Ramen Bar has expanded to include a new menu with select entrees and deli dishes. No more paper plates for eat-in dining. A can’t-miss food experience in Albuquerque. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Chicago natives Jim and Elizabeth Walker serve up different flavors every day, some familiar and some unique, like chocolate, cinnamon-sugar, toffee with nuts, tangerine and caramel. Customers can even choose their flavors and have their popcorn tossed to order. All of the corn is air-popped. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Albuquerque - Upper Nob Hill


5 rating (1 vote)
This healthy eatery offers organic plant-based cuisine that’s (mostly) locally sourced. The fresh food fills you up with delicious energy so you can scoot your boot to some live music performed by local musicians when you’re done. We like the fresh komubcha, and never pass on the vegan cheesecake. (Alibi Staff, May 12, 2017)

Cake Fetish is a boutique bakery with a singular passion for cupcakes (it won 2nd place for Best Cupcakes in the 2016 Best of Burque Restaurants poll). Not only that, the shop makes teeny, tiny ones—dense, two-bite buttons of cake, so you can comfortably roll through 30 flavor concepts like Velvet Elvis, (red velvet cake with cream cheese icing) or the minty, dark-chocolate Grasshopper, mounded with fluffy French buttercream. Regular-sized cupcakes also available. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)
