Mary & Tito's Cafe
2711 4th Street, NW Albuquerque, NM 87107

This charming small café north of downtown has been delighting patrons with its carne adovada, chile rellenos, Mexican turnovers (much like a sopaipilla but inspired by a calzone!) and other New Mexican dishes for nearly 5 decades. Mary and her late husband Tito, started the café. He was the original cook and taught today's kitchen staff how to prepare the dishes to his specifications. Mary still comes to the café every day to oversee things and greet her guests. Her daughter Antoinette capably manages the café with Mary now. Recognized by the James Beard Foundation as an America's Classic in 2010, as well as recognized by the Governor with Mary & Tito's Day. Don't leave without sampling a slice of Mexican wedding cake with its crushed pineapple, walnut, and cream cheese frosting. Lunch, dinner.
