There’s this cool little neighborhood bakery, named Golden Crown, here in Albuquerque.

Located at 1103 Mountain Road NW, Albuquerque, NM 87102, this bakery has been owned and operated by Pratt Morales for more than 35 years.

Today he is joined in business by his son and co-owner, Chris Morales.

Together, they’re turning this already wonderful bakery into a neighborhood gem.

Green chile bread, bolillos, baguettes, biscochito cookies, fruit-filled empanadas (my favorite is the apple), deli sandwiches, yummy pizza, wings, espresso drinks, teas.

Everything coming out of this bakery is delicious.

I’ve been working with Chris to sweeten up the patio, using plants and flowers.

The patio is already a magnet for couples and families around the downtown and old town areas, for good reasons. Hopefully the new flower beds will make an even more inviting oasis for locals and tourists alike. We’re not done yet – we’ll be adding more color splashes and upgrades throughout the summer.

If you haven’t been to Golden Crown before, or you haven’t been lately, consider having pizza for dinner on their patio at sunset.

Or do what I like to do some mornings and take your laptop and enjoy coffee and an empanada on the patio.
