Starbucks in Albuquerque



Albuquerque Los Lunas Rio Rancho


3400 Central Avenue

OPENED: ?, PHOTO: 09 September 1999

This is by far the coolest Starbucks in Albuquerque, and an improvement (I can only image) over the Arby's that preceded it.

While you're on Central Avenue, drop by the Frontier Restaurant for some reasonably priced and hearty grub. Everyone will tell you to try the Frontier Rolls, but I say the pancakes are excellent!

Even the beasts of the earth rush to get their coffee at this nifty-looking newer Starbucks in west Albuquerque.

This is one of those locations with an unuusual bathroom--in this case, decorative trim dividing the walls in half. And outside, the brick enclosing the patio surely comes in handy on a windy day.

New Mexico's first (and currently only) walk-up/drive-thru only store, a rarity around the country.

Rio Grande Blvd. & I-40

OPENED: ?, PHOTO: 22 November 2001

This store inherited some great features from the previous establishment, including a skylight, wooden bathroom doors, the native-style wall enclosing the patio, and and all-around pleasing exterior. Not sure if the fireplace is new or not, and the staff couldn't tell me if the windows opened or not.

This relocation is unusual because the original store closed nearly three years before this one opened--usually it's just a few days.
