Wonderful French & Other Continental Food.
Le Café Miche Bistro offers wonderful French and other continental food at reasonable prices in a charming petite atmosphere. Located on Albuquerque’s west side, this hidden gem is a must visit for the discerning gourmet in search of quality and enjoyable tastes in a cozy and relaxed atmosphere that will include numerous neighborhood regulars.
Located at 10126 Coors Blvd., NW, at the La Bella Spa & Salon, the restaurant serves delightful breakfasts and lunch specials in addition to a variety of regular choices that feature everything cooked from scratch. Seating is both inside and at an outside patio.
The beef stroganoff is hearty and filling and for lighter fare, I strongly recommend the chicken Provençale and chicken or seafood vol-au-vent and a variety of crêpes. Danish Christmas duck, beef stew, and green chili stew are tasty seasonal specialties that are alone worth a trip to the Westside of Albuquerque. Other specials worth special mention are bratwurst and Danish meatballs – frikadeller. Mogens gravies are a magnificent complement to any meal.
My wife regularly appreciates the salmon and a wide variety of quiches and salads offered and I find the Bistro sandwich a frequent less-filling choice. The French Onion Soup Lyonnais is simply the best I have ever tasted – anywhere! The homemade dinner rolls are better than any other in the city. There are a wide variety of tempting desserts should you actually have an appetite after what I promise will be a most satisfying meal.
