Not only is Nob Hill known for its hustle and bustle of culture, art, and entertainment – it’s got the food scene to match. You won’t ever have to wonder where to find great food because you’ll be surrounded by it! So, we made a list of the best restaurants for brunch in Nob Hill. Take a look here and let us know which of these is your favorite!  

Humble Coffee Company   

Humble Coffee Company isn’t just another coffee shop, although they have great coffee. Humble Coffee is a craft coffee shop specializing in single-origin espresso and brews, supporting local businesses, and serving Albuquerque-made breakfast burritos and fresh pastries.  

Cinnamon Sugar and Spice Café   

This quirky brunch spot offers a very eclectic menu that satisfies both sweet and savory cravings. One guest described the vibe as “if Pee-wee’s Playhouse opened a café.” If that hasn’t sparked enough curiosity, while you’re at Cinnamon Sugar and Spice Café, you may be the first person to try a brand-new sensation straight out of the oven at the demonstration kitchen.   

Flying Star Café   

“A place to drink good coffee and watch the world go by.” The food is homemade at Flying Star Café, and the desserts are fresh. Despite its popularity, it is still a small, local company that serves the community with delicious recipes made from scratch daily.   

The Farmacy   

The Farmacy is a local favorite in everyone’s book. Located off Central, it’s the perfect brunch spot to start a day of shopping. The locals praise the unique and delicious dishes, and the travelers know to put the Farmacy on their list of places to stop by.   

Tia Betty Blue’s**  

Tia Betty Blue’s is the number one brunch spot to be for home-style New Mexican breakfasts and lunches. But house-made chili, tamales, and posole aren’t all Tia B’s has to offer. In addition, you can’t miss their amazing blue corn waffles, both savory and sweet.  

Frontier Restaurant  

Frontier Restaurant offers, by far, the best environment for college students to spend hours studying or just relaxing. And in addition to this college-town feel, brunching at the Frontier Restaurant is like dining in an art gallery. Although these are permanent fixtures, local and national artists created every piece of art on the walls.
