Hillsboro General Store
10697 Highway 152 Hillsboro, NM 88042

The Hillsboro General Store Café is located in a adobe building built in 1879 and used as a bank, telegraph office,stage stop and eventually a storeroom for the adjacent Miller Drug Store. In 1914 the main building was destroyed in a devastating flood and business moved into the adjacent building where it continues today. Luckily many of the original artifacts from the buildings' many uses have survived to this day providing visitors with a glimpse of life in the late 19th century. As a central meeting place it also offer visitors a view of rural New Mexico life in the 21st century and continues to serve as a rest stop for travelers crossing the Black Range. Open from 8am to 3pm, it offers breakfast and lunch featuring both traditional American fare, traditional southwestern New Mexico cuisine and home baked desserts, pastries and pies. In addition, drinks and snacks, hand dipped ice cream and thick frosty shakes and malts are available.
