Every weekend in Albuquerque, students are faced with a decision: either treat yourself and get waffles, or sleep in. For those who don’t already know, Tia B’s La Waffleria is arguably the best breakfast/brunch/lunch joint in town, serving up a vast variety of sweet and savory waffle dishes. The deliciousness of literally every entree hasn’t gone unnoticed though– with great waffles comes great notoriety and long lines on weekends. Thus the question becomes: to sleep in or to wake up at a “responsible” hour, drag your friends out of bed, and feast on some of the best waffles on earth.
The menu boasts endless combinations. On the sweeter side some standouts include the Azteca, the Fried Bananas, and the Bombay Coconut (which is one of many gluten free and vegan waffles). The savory options are equally infinite and delicious, most notable among them are the Biscuits and Gravy, the Benitos, the Rancheros, and of course, Waffles and Chicken. If that wasn’t enough to make your mouth water and mind spin, you can build your own! Oh, and did we mention their tea, coffee, lattes, and hot chocolate are just as amazing as everything else?
Whether you’re braving the long line of popularity, waking up early to get the first waffles of the day, or are wise enough to walk over from campus in between classes, Tia B’s offers not only incredible food but a wonderful atmosphere. In the summertime, the front patio is a wonderful space to enjoy brunch under geometric shade cloths with your furry four-legged friend. In the spring, the back-patio flowers are in full bloom, and during the winter, the fireplace roars inside the main dining room.
Seriously, don’t just take our word for it, the Waffleria is just down the street.
