“Paletas from this location of the Paleta Bar have always been up to standard. Which is to say mighty good on the flavor front & highly diverse with the available topping selections. Staff has been friendly & welcoming, as well as highly proficient at doling out the frozen goodies. I've also tried their aguas and found them to be refreshing and tasty. This Paleta Bar, like the other locations, is an easy recommend for a tasty dessert stop.“

I, on the other hand, am not impressed with their one and only (dairy-free) pomegranate flavor that they have had forever. Wish more places like this had more dairy-free option. Would be 5-star if they did.“

When I asked about the coffee used by the shop, I was given a full rundown of the local company they purchase from. It was really nice to get that complete of an answer to my question. It's getting rarer to find enthusiastic and knowledgeable employees. Hang on to those two.I also asked because the espresso was quite delicious. The ice cream was pretty darn good, too.“

He choose pistachio, coffee and mint. He absolutely loved his banana split. I had a waffle cone with 2 scoops of ice cream ( Ferrero Rocher & Chocolate Oreo ) that was absolutely amazing! We will most definitely be coming back to try their other goodies. They have so many different options to choose from. Definitely worth checking out.“

Breakfast Burrito
Frappuccino

“Moka Joe's Coffee is the perfect place to pick up a to-go meal or snack when you don't have time to sit and linger over a meal. It's super close to the Alvarado Transportation Center (ATC), which gives those traveling on the Rail Runner, Amtrak, or Greyhound to get something for the next part of their journey across the region, state, or country.They're prices are great; you get a lot of food for little money.I like to pick up a breakfast burrito -- which they make on the spot -- and latte on my way to volunteer at the Downtown Grower's Market Saturday mornings. They are at the Rail Yard Market on Sundays. For 2023, the Rail Yard Market closes at the end of October.If you don't have time to wait for a custom burrito, bagel sandwich, or traditional sandwich, you can order online through their Google Maps page. They are also on DoorDash and Grubhub. They also offer pastries and salads; the basic fare you'll find at many coffeehouses.They are open weekdays, plus, Saturday. We need more businesses Downtown that are open on the weekend, especially on the east side of the core. Yea! Moka Joe's!“

“My husband and I were leaving mini golf when we saw this place and thought we'd check it out. Back home we don't have anything like this (yet!) so it was new and interesting. Alex assisted us and walked us thru creating our own delicious desserts. I selected the Hazelnut Crunch bar with White Chocolate and fruity pebbles. I was AMAZING! The flavors complimented each other and were both fun and satisfying. My husband isn't picky which can sometimes be a bad thing at places like this. He knew he wanted the avocado bar but after that he didn't know. He asked Alex to pick for him and he chose dark chocolate with pecans. It was so tasty that I was only offered the tiniest bite to try since hubby wanted the whole thing (lol). All in all a great experience and I hope that one of these stores will open in SoCal! And a big shout out to Alex! He was great, friendly and was a huge help. Someone give that guy a raise!!“

Rasband Dairy Ice Cream & Frozen Yogurt
7116 Isleta Blvd SW, Albuquerque

“I live just down the road but would drive across the city for their product.I asked my friend to pick me up some half-and-half on her way to my house. I must have inadvertently said "cream" instead of "half-and-half" as it is for my coffee. Like most people, I just say "coffee with cream" instead of "coffee with half-and-half." Well, I didn't want to let a good gallon of cream go to waste so I mixed Rasband whole milk with Rasband cream (50-50) and OH MY GOD! I thought I'd died and gone to heaven!Their half-and-half is beyond reproach, but when I made my own half-and-half.... the flavor, the creaminess.... It's better than anything I ever imagined. I'm a big coffee-drinker and very finicky about my coffee. Premium brands only. So only good half-and-half goes in my coffee.Now I make all my own half-and-half with Rasband's cream and whole milk. I buy a gallon of each. I store them in my fridge separately (I don't mix both gallons right away) and make about 5-6 cups of mix at a time. It will take me just shy of 2 weeks to go through the gallon of cream and gallon of whole milk and neither go bad on me. The cream may separate a small bit, but that is normal. I just give it a real good shake and it's blended again.Please, don't go anywhere Rasband. I'll never be able to drink anything else in my coffee again as it would be a big step down in quality and flavor.Thank you!“
