Guy Fieri of Diners, Drive-ins and Dives’ Fame was Here…Cecilia’s Café.

In Albuquerque.

Let’s Take a Lunchtime Stroll through Downtown to See What All the Hype is About.

Just One More Block.  See the Red Awning.  That’s It.

Cecilia’s Café.

Found It.  A Tiny Family-Owned Café.


A Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives’ Dive.

The Building is Adorned With Our Lady of Guadalupe and Hot Air Balloons.

This Pretty Much Sums Up Albuquerque.

Cecilia’s Serves Enormous Quantities of Chile.  Carefully Labeled and Hanging in Waiting.

Her Choice.  Beef Tacos with Beans and Rice for 2.

A Shrine Next to the Kitchen.  Because…Well…Why Not?

Really Good New Mexican Food Moves Swiftly Out of the Tiny Kitchen.

A Framed Memento Displayed in the Dining Room of Guy Fieri.

Once a Celebrity Hot-Spot…Always a Celebrity Hot-Spot.

2009!   And Everyone is Still Talking about It.

A Quick Lunch leaves Time for Dessert.

If We Hurry.

French Dessert Crepes at Breve Crepes & Coffee.

Across the Street from the High School.

Watching Crepe-Making is Fascinating Fun.

Swirling Nutella on the Crepe.

Sprinkling Chocolate Chips.

Whipped Cream Topping.

Love the Paper Sleeve.  I’ll Have a Little Taste, Please.

Cutting Through the famous Simms Building on the Way Back to Work.

Built in 1950 – the First and Only Mid-Century Modern Building in Albuquerque.

Leftover Taco and Crepe in Hand.  It’s All Good.

But Wait…High School’s Out for the Day.  We can’t resist a Quick Spy on Miss Doodle.

Down There.  On the Corner.

Walking in the Cross Walk.   Shhh.  Giggles All Around.

Magical Moments in the Neighborhood on a Simple Summer Day.

    1. For all the New Mexican food eating we do, it’s still not my favorite…but even I recognize Good New Mexican Food. And this is the real deal. Many visitors stop here because of the show…locals and tourists all cram in for a fun time. I love the show too. 🙂
