Sandia Crest Byway, Sandia Park

The Sandia Crest House is a New Mexico treasure perched atop 10,678 feet of majestic mountain terrain. Enjoy our 2-mile-high cafe and coffee house, extraordinary views and local gifts, all served with a side of serenity, just minutes from Albuquerque.

The windows provide more than just views of incredible scenery. They are also a place to put that fancy camera or regular phone to work snapping pictures of birds, squirrels, and more!
