Breakfast in Albuquerque

When it Comes to Breakfast, Albuquerque Doesn't Have to Scramble


The number of Albuquerque breakfast restaurants is large, and this list is by no means comprehensive. They each offer a unique take on that first meal of the day, whether specializing in red chile, muffins or great huevos rancheros. They are all quintessentially Albuquerque, though, and worth their eggs and bacon.

Barelas Coffee Shop

The Barelas Coffee House is a famous Albuquerque spot for breakfast and lunch. Along the historic Camino Real in the historic Barelas neighborhood, it is close to the National Hispanic Cultural Center and downtown.

Lots of food, and the quality and taste are a cut above average. The Range has a fun and kitchy atmosphere and exceptional baked goods. Look for the old stoves and ranges, some of them toys.
