Albuquerque SE

Deb- Are you tuned in?
(Of course, I'll listen to anyone if you're willing to help)
I'm picking up a friend at the airport and heading East, to drive up Hwy 14 to Santa Fe.
We're going to need lunch (gluten-free for me).
Any suggestions for something healthy and tasty between the the airport and Carnuel?

  1. I would go to The Grove Cafe and Market
    Exit airport on Yale and go north to Central. Make a left on Central, go under I 25 and it's on the left side, corner of Walter. Then you could get back on 25 and head over to 40.

    They have nice salads which would work for gluten-free.

    Gil just did a write up on it:

    Let me know if you want more ideas.

    Grove Cafe & Market

      I keep forgetting about the Grove Cafe - I think we'll try it when Peter goes to Presbyterian for an appointment in a couple of weeks.
      For the "heading for Tijeras" day, I'd like something out toward the southeast corner of the city.

        Greenside Cafe in Cedar Crest? I haven't eaten there, but it sounds good and Gil liked it:

          BINGO! Looks great - and GF options.
          We really need to meet for a cup of tea sometime.

            Torino's for coffee and a pastry works for me!

              You mean I have to go all the way to Albuquerque?
              I'll let you know the next time I make the Great Trek.
