Do you like great coffee? Do you enjoy friendly service? Do you like ridiculously tasty bakery goods, made about 20ft from the counter they sit in? Then I'd say you should stop here...a lot. Not only is the coffee solid (as good or better than any shop in Abq), but the bakery stuff is what I could retire on (and presumably become quite fat on). Even tried a choc chip cookie that was not shabby at all, especially for only $1.50~ Finally, it's not just a coffee shop, but they have a full kitchen which pumps out some crazy good breakfast burritos, with REAL chile (really, this is new mexico, why doesn't every place use real chile....thank God Hwy 4 Cafe does!!!). Tasty but won't leave your mouth on fire...kinda like the goldilocks of breakfast burritos you could say. Oh, and for those technogeeks who can't be separated from their beloved devices, they have free wifi.....yes, you WILL have to leave the cafe at some point and go enjoy the mtns, but for the time being you may enjoy your coffee, wifi, & burrito.
This place used to be a complete joy. Now it is a complete disappointment. It changed hands sometime maybe a year or two ago and has completely collapsed in charm and quality. The food is now pedestrian at best and truly overpriced. The staff, particularly the large guy who bullies other employees and customers are disappointing and distract further from the experience. I you went in the early years when it was totally wonderful, with fabulous pastries and fascinating curries and homemade soups, stay away and cherish your memories. Interestingly they have posted a review in their window that says about the exact same thing I am here. Really sad. Was a go to place and something we looked forward to in the past.
The surly guy behind the counter in the morning, who said that he was the cashier, baker, and cook, put me off ordering anything with his unpleasant demeanor. Which is too bad, because according to a menu located in our hotel room, this place bakes bread, and we were trying to get some bread to make lunches with.
