While Los Alamos is small in size, the food offerings are quality and aplenty.
For breakfast or lunch, get in line, and believe us that the wait is worth it — for Bob’s Well Bread. Housed in a former gas station, the bakery is dedicated to using local and sustainable growers for their ingredients. Grab a pastry or loaf for later and try one of their sandwiches as an excellent on-the-go option for exploring the town.
For quick eats, Charlie’s is a local staple (since 1978) offering BBQ and Mexican dishes at affordable prices. Pick up an order to go from the window or grab a seat and enjoy the friendly service.
For dinner, the most “buzz”-y restaurant in town is Bell’s, offering bistro inspired dishes in a convivial atmosphere. The wine list features local and European picks and staff are happy to assist in pairings; be sure to reserve well in advance of your trip. Next, housed in the former general store, Pico is a delightful spot (currently serving dinner only) that showcases all that the region has to offer. If available, the backyard patio is a hidden gem in town perfect for a romantic outing.
Step off the main drag (Bell Street) and head to Norman’s at the Skyview for a cozy meal with a view. When the weather is nice snag a spot on the patio, perfect for sunset drinks or dining! Back in town, Full of Life Flatbread will satisfy your pizza craving (crafted from locally sourced ingredients of course) and you can post up on the patio or at the bar to enjoy it with a brew or an expertly paired glass of vino.
