AVON — Debbie Marquez, the former co-owner and proprietor of Fiestas!
Cafe & Cantina in Edwards, has opened a new restaurant called Cafe
de Luna in Avon. Cafe de Luna showcases Marquez's signature New Mexico
style cuisine, combining other Mexican favorites in what she likes to
call “High Country Mex” fare.
Marquez has opened up her new
venture in the Christie Lodge, formerly occupied by the Blue Plate
Bistro. The restaurant is serving breakfast, lunch and dinner seven days
a week. Cafe de Luna makes nearly everything on the menu in-house,
using fresh ingredients from reliable and socially conscious companies. A
stand out on the menu is the different chile sauces incorporated into
the dishes. All of Cafe de Luna's chile sauces are prepared from scratch
with four primary from-the-farm chiles. The farms have been supplying
the Marquez and Luna families for generations.
There are familiar
favorites on the menu, as well as additional New Mexico style dishes,
like blue corn tortilla chicken enchiladas, chile rellenos and fajitas.
The dinner and lunch menus both have similar dishes but in different
proportions to suit the time of day. Breakfast is a special affair at
Cafe de Luna, with numerous options such as breakfast burritos, Santa Fe
style eggs and huevos rancheros. Marquez is excited about her new
“I wanted to bring my signature family dishes to the
community of Avon and its visitors,” she said. “I am passionate about my
recipes, some of which have been in the family for generations.”
de Luna has a full bar, including signature margaritas. During warmer
months the patio will provide a sun-drenched haven for meeting friends
and family over a plate of “High Country Mex” food.
