If you’re staying in Los Alamos - or within 10 miles of Los Alamos - your day begins at Bob’s. This order-at-the-counter cafe/bakery is located inside a converted gas station right in town, and is one of the most popular breakfast spots in the region, which means you can expect hour-long waits on the weekends. But frankly, we’d wait two hours for this food. There’s a full menu featuring everything from breakfast sandwiches to gravlax platters (plus wood-fired pizza on weekend afternoons), but your focus really needs to be on the pastries and baked goods at the front counter. The kouign-amann and almond croissant will wipe clean any lingering wine hangover.
