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)

Their hours seem to change monthly, but Adieux Café is still serving up excellent beer and cocktails in the heart of Downtown. The kitchen closed recently, but the eatery next door serves their food to the bars patrons Friday and Saturday nights. (Alibi Staff, January 7, 2014)

Al’s has moved from the old Relish space downtown to a spot inside the Main Library on Copper, but still serves a hefty menu of inspired hot and cold sandwiches. There’s an emphasis on homemade touches, from the sweet onion jam on the roast beef sandwich to the cookie that comes with every order. Good salads, daily made-from-scratch soups and a new sandwich special every day keep the lunch crowd on its toes. (Alibi Staff, November 4, 2010)

Once your lunch or dinner at the upscale Artichoke Café has concluded, you’ve got to adjourn to the sexy new Wine Bar next door. The wine list is actually a leather-bound tome with a massive assortment of wines. Prices start at a decent $28 or $30 a bottle and zoom up into the upper stratospheres of frivolity, but you can also order select vintages by the half-bottle or glass. You'll love the front-facing "big city" windows, curvy wooden bar and comfortable seats. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

3.17 rating (23 votes)
Café Lush is like a daydream of the way things might be in some future hybrid of Europe and Albuquerque. It’s an urban café on a quiet street corner, with a small menu of simple, yet well-crafted, dishes and a pledge to use local, seasonal and organic ingredients whenever possible. But unlike in Europe, the red and green chile won’t disappoint. (Alibi Staff, November 17, 2011)

Cecilia’s Café

230 Sixth Street SW (Downtown)

Cecilia is the matriarch of one of Albuquerque’s best breakfast burritos and red chile. Clinging close to the heart of Downtown on Sixth Street and Silver, Cecilia makes the food herself in the kitchen. The red chile is no joke, and the prices are pretty friggin’ cheap too.

With some 20 sandwich choices including a fruit and cheese, a gyro or a French dip awaiting the hungry diner. The Sicilian sandwich, a pepperoni, capicolla and mozzarella concoction on French bread is excellent. Try a slice of house-baked lemon cake with cream cheese frosting, moist and springy, with just enough lemon to offset the rich cream cheese frosting.

Cuisine: American

3.46 rating (31 votes)
Sometimes we're so anxious for a double green chile cheeseburger, we dig in without even washing our hands. That's how tantalizing this food is! The flashing sign beckons us to hot dog mecca, where we indulge in not only dogs but the essential tater tots and Frito pie. Get your dogs to go and race home so you can enjoy them with a few brews. Or go inside the Dog House and find a seat at the tiny counter, then nurse that sweaty tongue of yours with a milkshake. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Moist cake, exceptional cream cheese frosting, and inspired flavors and decorations are a treasure on their own. Wholesome and affordable sandwiches options and daily specials are just the icing on the cake. (Alibi Staff, June 16, 2011)

This charming café is probably going to be busy every morning we try to eat there but it’s totally worth the wait. Serving up a menu of homey breakfast favorites like waffles, eggs benedict, breakfast burritos, huevos and their gold hash plus more delicious options for lunch and dinner. We reccomend the portabello mushroom sandwich! (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

The New Mexico grass-fed Holy Cow burger comes on a brioche bun, while an ahi tuna sandwich, veggie club and dinner salads offer some more choices for bovine-averse diners. Beer and wine, plus shakes, malts and floats, are available to complete the sacrament. (Alibi Staff, September 1, 2011)

This rooftop bar offers a breezy patio, a menu of small plates and specialty cocktails for those looking to relax after a long day at work (the kind where you wear suits!). The food is hit or miss, but the house-created cocktails—like the spicy-yet-refreshing cucumber-jalapeño margarita—make it well worth a visit. (Alibi Staff, October 10, 2012)

Meals Served: BreakfastLunch

3.25 rating (59 votes)
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, sandwiches and salads. Warning: The scrambled-egg breakfast burrito may cause you to moan out loud. Don’t worry though, the people sitting around you will understand. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

The food is pretty standard bar fare with burgers and the like. But hey, you can have a delicious Pickleback (whiskey and pickle juice) to wash it down. Then hop out onto the dance floor, cheer on the neon go-go dancers and boogie. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Plaza Eatery

1 One Civic Plaza NW (Downtown)
Albuquerque NM 87102
(505) 768-3539
Mon-Fri: 7am-4pm Sat-Sun: Closed (hours can change without notice)

3.27 rating (15 votes)
Plaza Eatery, steps away from Civic Plaza, is an ideal location to eat lunch and spot your local elected government officials, whether it be city councilors or the mayor himself. With some of the lowest prices Downtown and a large menu of tasty American, Greek and New Mexican lunch specials, and lots of fresh baked goods, Plaza Eatery is one of Downtown’s best-kept secrets. Try a chicken walnut salad, served with a croissant, and get a chocolate-dipped cookie for dessert. Plaza Eatery also offers a sizeable breakfast menu. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Q Burger

301 Central Ave NW (Downtown)
Albuquerque NM 87102
505-224-2747
www.qburgerabq.com/Q_burger…

5 rating (3 votes)
This restaurant has already gone through one name (it used to be called BRGR,) but its mission remains the same: to provide gourmet, locally sourced hamburgers to Albuquerque’s Downtown. In addition to your typical beef burger, Q also offers up some exotic meat options (yak and kangaroo are both in the special rotation), a fine selection of salads, and a huge list of local beers to wash down your meal. (Alibi Staff, May 28, 2014)

Slate Street Café

Meals Served: BreakfastBrunchLunchDinner

3.77 rating (99 votes)
Slate is on a quiet, blink-and-you-miss-it avenue between Fifth and Sixth Street nestled right in the heart of the legal district. Like the space itself, the menu is polished and unintimidating. Don’t miss the ahi tuna sandwich (with gluten-free bread available!). It's all very affordable for its level of quality. There’s also a fabulous wine loft with the wines 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. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Meals Served: BreakfastBrunchLunchDinner
Cuisine: American, Dessert

3.08 rating (87 votes)
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)
