This ray of sunshine in Edo serves gourmet breakfast and lunch, sells house-made 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. A tiny wine list is just as chic—five reds and five whites are marked on a chalkboard, and all are constantly changing. This list is extremely well thought-out and offers a sampling of some of the most esoteric varietals and brands available in Albuquerque. There’s also a large, shaded patio, incredible house-made cupcakes and too-cute macaroons.

Listen to some live bands every Saturday night while cooling off or grab a growler, six-pack or keg to go if you want to avoid the summer heat. (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. Choose from cakes like marble, German chocolate or carrot; fillings like Bavarian cream, blueberry or chocolate fudge; and icings including butter cream, chocolate chipped cream and cream cheese. Cakes aside, a wide selection of Danishes, like strawberry cheese, praline and apricot, are also very tempting. The cookie selection is worth testing, especially 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 is piñon in it, you can be sure they came from New Mexico. And what tastes more like love than chocolate and piñon?

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

4.08 rating (63 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 Seafood Market

Albuquerque NM 87109
(505) 821-5787
Tue-Sat 10am-6pm Sunday & Monday (hours can change without notice)

3.23 rating (47 votes)
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 house-made fish stock. (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)

Your pets need to eat too! Pup-cakes and decadent treats won’t break the bank at this dog treat mecca. Dogs will love the natural flavors and presentation of the shop’s extremely affordable offerings, and you’ll be tempted to try one yourself. (Alibi Staff, February 2, 2011)

Albuquerque - Midtown

Ariana Halal Market

607 San Mateo Blvd NE (Midtown)
Albuquerque NM
(505) 255-1325
arianamarket.com
Mon-Sat 10am-7pm Sun 11am-5pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinner

4.5 rating (8 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. (Alibi Staff, July 12, 2011)

Meals Served: BreakfastLunch

2.77 rating (43 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)

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)

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!

10420 Fourth Street NW (North Valley)
Albuquerque NM 87114

cravincookiesandmore.com
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.

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)

Joe S. Sausage and Ravioli

1900 4th Street NW (North Valley)
Albuquerque NM 87107
(505) 688-0445
Mon-Sat 10am-6pm (hours can change without notice)

4.45 rating (22 votes)
This little North Valley specialty store turns out three things—sausage, ravioli and pierogi. You know it’s got to be good. An amazing and constantly changing variety of flavors are made fresh every day by Joe S. Sausage himself, which he freezes and sells for his loyal customers to take home. Plop the raviolis in some simmering water for a few minutes and they cook up perfectly tender. Serve alongside Joe’s sizzling-fresh sausage and you’ve got the fastest, most delicious “homemade” meal you’ve ever tasted. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)
