Las Cruces Eatery

Great food, spectacular view at Abraham’s Café

A

t Abraham’s Café, the food is fantastic, and so is the view. A fixture on the fourth-floor of the Wells Fargo Tower at 506 S. Main St. in Las Cruces for more than three decades, the restaurant offers some of the best homemade American dishes you will find. And you don’t even mind the short wait for your food because the view is amazing. I’m a frequent visitor to Abraham’s, learning about it during my tenure with Las Cruces Public Schools; the central office is across the street from the bank tower. During my latest visit, the Gluten-Free Gourmet triumphed again. My excellent waitress, Ashley, said many of the restaurant’s gluten-free customers (like me) really like Abraham’s Veracruz chicken; so, that’s what I had. The dish was smothered in a combination of white and yellow cheeses, along with a green chile sauce with onions and tomatoes (I asked them to hold the mushrooms), and it was outstanding. So were the pinto beans that came on the side. The meal had a pleasant start with a great dinner salad with green-leaf lettuce (I am not a fan of the iceberg stuff), tomatoes and the sometimes-hard-to-find French dressing that I love. I topped it off with Debbie Abraham’s homemade blueberry

pie a la mode. Eating around the crust (damn gluten free!) was the only bad part of that. Including iced tea, the price tag for this fabulous fare was a modest $17.27. So, if I had just ordered the entrée and water and still left a decent tip, it would have cost less than $10. That’s amazing. Abraham’s menu also includes a variety of daily specials. My advice is go on Tuesday and get the meatloaf. It is one of my favorite dishes in all of Las Cruces. Other daily specials include breaded flounder from Puerto Peñasco, bacon and spinach quiche, Southern-fried steak and tuna melt. The menu also includes the soup of the day, salads, chicken, steak and seafood, smothered burritos, great sandwiches and burgers, a wide variety of homemade pies (get the key lime if Debbie has it on the menu), and

a full breakfast menu. I had a great meal, great service and a great experience at Abraham’s. I highly (as in fourth floor) recommend it. As many old-timers may remember, Debbie and Brian Abraham had a restaurant on the downtown mall in the 1970s before moving to the bank tower. When you get to the fourth floor, the first thing you’ll see is the federal prosecutor’s office. Just take a left down the hallway, and there’s Abraham’s. Abraham’s Café is open from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. (summer hours), Monday through Friday for breakfast and lunch. They also do takeout. For more information, call 575-523-5911, and find them on Facebook.
