Every time you rise 1000′ in elevation it is normal to lose 5 degrees or more in temperature. When it is blazing hot in Albuquerque, head east and just 10 minutes from town is the micro-community of Cedar Crest, home to one of the best homestyle and quirky cafes around: Greenside Cafe.
This week there are some really amazing specials (like a Cantaloupe Bisque TODAY), so take a quick little drive and check out Jay’s cooking skills. He’s open every single day with the latest hours on the mountain – that’s great news for you, even on a “school night”.
Open weekdays at 7am, weekends at 8am, and open until 8pm weekdays, 9pm weekends. Here are some other of the nifty specials this week (via Facebook):
Seabass Tacos: Seared Pacific seabass, served with white corn tortillas, black beans, rice, fresh avocado and spicy grilled pineapple salsas
Buffalo Tortilla Burger: Grilled onions, pepper jack, all rolled up in a flour tortilla with a grilled 1/3 lb hamburger.
Beer poached bratwurst with saurkraut served OR Hebrew National Hot dog topped with homemade chile.
Oh, and don’t forget – Jay makes his own ice cream!!!
