Las Vegas

Charlie's Spic & Span Bakery & Café

715 Douglas Ave.
Las Vegas, NM, 87745, United States
TEL: (505) 426-1921

A large cake jutting from the top of the building marks this popular café in the downtown historic district. Inside, the no-frills space is designed in pastel hues with painted windows, simple wooden tables, and a chalkboard menu. The main focus here is the authentic New Mexican cuisine, particularly the freshly baked tortillas—which are prepared right in front of customers—and the homemade desserts paired with Starbucks coffee. Charlie’s specialties include the blue corn enchiladas, the stuffed sopaipillas topped with spicy green chiles, and the bakery’s famous doughnuts, which many claim are the best in town.

Insider Tip:

Your server will ask whether you want red or green chiles on your dish; for the most authentic flavor, request “Christmas” style—both red and green.
