What better place to tackle your list of homework assignments and studying than cozying up in a local cafe? As the semesters pick up speed, most local shops are bustling with students throughout the day, and it can be hard to find a place that keeps you in the zone. Albuquerque’s hidden gem, Novel Point Coffee, should be at the very top of your list. Just downtown, only eight minutes from campus, it’s a small but spacious café with an out-of-this-world aesthetic. No, really; it’s hard to miss the larger-than-life mural of a suited-up astronaut on the wall. Novel Point has a large menu and plentiful drinks — with and without espresso. Their unique flavors extend way past ‘vanilla’: diversify your tastes and try out their honey, lavender, and ginger menu options as well! If you’re grabbing a drink, you might as well grab one of their delicious pastries or Lobo-favorite oatmeal bowls. The small-town feel of friendly employees, comfortable seating, and great studying vibes make Novel Point Coffee the perfect place for all your café needs!
