A Visit to Casa de Ruiz (Wordless Wednesday)
Several years ago hubby and I visited Albuquerque, New Mexico for the first time during a railway conference. We spent quite a bit of time during lunches and breaks walking around and discovering Old Town there. One of our favorite spots was the Casa de Ruiz, Church Street Cafe.
Possibly the oldest residence in town (maybe even the state) this structure dates from the founding days of Albuquerque in the early 1700’s. Since the passing of the last resident Ruiz family member in 1991, it has become a southwestern cafe.
We have since visited a number of times, both on our own and with our girls (they love to sit outside in the back where, during late summer, you can pick grapes off the vines growing right by your table).
We had a chance to visit for lunch last week as our two month + roadtrip was coming to a close.
