Zendo Coffee

When Pilar Westell launched Zendo Coffee in Downtown Albuquerque in 2013, she wanted to stay true to her vision of a friendly local hotspot and delivering the goods (high-quality coffee, that is).

Zendo is now a city mainstay and local favorite for a great cup of coffee, exhibitions by local artists, and an afternoon with friends. Pilar spoke with Visit Albuquerque about the city’s coffee scene, how she chose her location and she also gave her take on 9 Coffee Shops with Great Vibes in Albuquerque and her favorite Boutique Art Galleries to Check Out in Albuquerque.

Zendo is recommended by notable locals as one of the best coffee shops in Albuquerque, NM.

Zendo’s Central Downtown Location

Zendo’s location is close to Pilar’s heart. “Zendo is Downtown, and that's probably my favorite neighborhood just because there's just so much to do. You can get great tacos and drinks, you can walk around and look at all these amazing murals, and then the Rio Grande and Bosque are so close. Downtown Albuquerque really is the heart of the city.”

Zendo’s Role in Albuquerque’s Coffee Scene

“The coffee scene in Albuquerque is just exploding right now, and we’re so proud to be a part of that. There's so many cool shops, like Prismatic and Villa Myriam, and my favorite part about it is that they all kind of cater to different things. It depends on what you're in the mood for. You can get basically any kind of coffee that you like to drink anywhere in town right now, which is really cool.”

Zendo is recommended by notable locals as one of the best coffee shops in Albuquerque, NM.
