So get your cute outfits (or comfies, who’s judging?) and grab your people. Here’s our guide to brunch.

Thank you to Menaul School for sponsoring this guide.

Families and students can visit the school’s beautiful campus by scheduling a campus visit. Learn more on their website.

The Grove 

This locally owned and operated gem in EDo is one of the cutest places in town. (Flavored mimosas for the win!) The Grove offers indoor and outdoor dining, as well as the cutest shop of unique goods inside. (Try a bottle of their homemade fancy sauce.) An Albuquerque favorite for sure.

Writers Pick: Croque Madame

600 Central Avenue SE Suite A 87102

Open Tuesday-Sunday 7a-3p (opens at 8a on Sundays)

Campo at Los Poblanos

Albuquerque’s own little “Silos.” Los Poblanos does not just offer killer food but amazing views, an on-site farm, and their world famous lavender. (Don’t be surprised if you see lavender on the menu.) You will not regret ordering a Bellini.  Stay the night in one of their luxurious rooms and make an overnight experience out of it.

Writers Pick: Monte Cristo

803 Rio Grande Blvd. N.W. 87107

Breakfast served daily  7:30-10:30a (until 11:30a on weekends)

Slate Street Cafe

Another locally owned Albuquerque gem. This restaurant is tucked away in a neighborhood setting, right in the middle of downtown ABQ. They offer a quaint little patio, and made-from-scratch “comfort foods with a twist.” A great place to spend some time with your best girlfriends.

Writers Pick: Sausage Sliders

515 Slate Ave. NW 87102

Open Daily — Times Vary

Tia Betty Blues

Staying true to authentic Northern New Mexico style cuisine, Tia Betty Blues has been serving Albuquerque for ages. (They also opened up their sister restaurant Tia B’s La Waffleria, which probably deserves its own listing.) If you are looking to taste what New Mexico is all about, this is your place. (Plus they have a real flair for coffee.)

Writers Pick: Huevos Rancheros

1248 San Mateo Blvd SE 87108

Open Daily 7a-2p (opens at 8a on the weekends)


A fairly new ABQ establishment, Farmacy has gained a great reputation fast. With daily special, beer and wine, and so much more, there’s definitely something for everyone to enjoy. (Also, a great kids menu if the little ones are in tow.)

Writers Pick: Migas Scramble

3718 Central Ave SE  87108

Open Daily 8a-3p 

Cinnamon Sugar and Spice Cafe

With two locations, Cinnamon serves both the NE Heights and Nob Hill. Their cozy patio is the perfect place to sip a specialty coffee (or a NM brewed beer.) Need more than just a quick brunch? Try one of their public cooking classes and learn how to make your own brunch magic.

Writers Pick: Carne Adovada Omelet

Mountain Run Shopping Center and Nob Hill Business Center
