Golden Crown Panadería

1103 Mountain Road NW, Albuquerque, NM - (505) 243-2424
Three words: green chile bread. It’s marvelous and totally worth a detour to this squat bakery near Old Town Albuquerque. You’ll also want to grab a box of one of the finest examples of New Mexico’s state cookie, biscochito (anise-flavored shortbread). If you’re eating in, stay a while for bakery-fresh pizzas built to order. Beautiful Mexican pastries and fancy coffees round out this Roadfood treasure.

The biscochito is the official state cookie of New Mexico--similar to a shortbread but anise-flavored.

The excellent empanadas, like this apricot one, have a flaky crust and are sprinkled liberally with sugar.

This now-nearly-empty box still contains a moon-shaped pumpkin empanada, a cinnamon sugar-coated dessert tostada, a snowy lemon flauta, and a few Mexican wedding cookies for good measure.
