Breakfast New Mexico Style
Where can you eat breakfast while overlooking the entire Tularosa Basin? Where can you see funky collections of memorabilia and eclectic art, including possibly the world's largest velvet Elvis? Where can you sample a variety of burritos, huevos rancheros, and chilaquiles, in addition to such delicacies as pinon scones, Americana graburritos, a pork 'n produce omelet, and perhaps the most mysterious: a hen grenade? We've got the answers to all these questions! Imagine having a statewide network of librarians, busily researching the best places for you to have breakfast. Many of the eateries we describe are housed in historic buildings, several are located right on or very close to Historic Route 66, some have been used in films or TV, and more than one claims to be haunted. "Breakfast New Mexico Style" is a dining guide to over 100 librarian-endorsed restaurants from Carlsbad to Aztec and Tucumcari to Silver City. Included are recommended reading and after breakfast activity suggestions. In person or from your armchair, travel to locales frequented by many of New Mexico's famous and infamous, real and fictional characters: Smokey Bear, Billy the Kid, Robert Goddard, Georgia O'Keeffe, Robert Oppenheimer, Jim Chee & Joe Leaphorn, Claire Reynier, Kevin Kerney, Sasha Solomon, and the enigmatic Ultima, to name just a few.
