A Gem in Bernalillo - The Range Cafe

THIS IS A MUST-GO-KINDA-PLACE

 
The Range Cafe is just plain fun and delicious. It opened in 1992 in a vintage building that has been around since the early 30's. As you step into the restaurant,
you're deliciously assaulted by the pastry display - luscious cakes, creme brulee
and other delights that are baked from scratch daily.

The decor is funky and inviting...



The Menu is extensive


Breakfast is served until 3pm daily. My kind of place. I ordered the Range Roundup - a large home baked biscuit topped with crumbled bacon and sausage, scrambled eggs, white cheddar cheese, with range fries con queso and pinto
beans on the side.


Not my typical meal, but, it was amazing. Fresh, perfectly cooked, wonderful flavors.

 

The service was professional and friendly...

And while I took a break from my biscuits & gravy, I stepped into the Cafe's Saloon/Bar - The Lizard Rodeo Lounge. A great weekend destination!







 


There's a nifty stage offering live music Friday and Saturdays.
Check their website for a schedule.




And, there's a wonderful shop showcasing contemporary Native American jewelry, prints and pottery from many of the Pueblos. The shop also has a  great collection of vintage pottery that gives the feel of being in a museum.
