Albuquerque, New Mexico: UFO Crashed at Coffee Shop (Gone)

A retro-kooky flying saucer with two astronauts creates a colorful crash landing in the facade of a coffee shop. The toy style vehicle is less disturbing to caffeine-sanded nerves.

Satellite Coffee. I-40 exit 160. Drive south on Carlisle Blvd for 1.5 miles. Turn right onto Central Ave. You'll see the coffee shop on the right.

It's gone. Coffee shop is closed up. But cute downtown with neat shops and breweries.

UFO Crashed at Coffee Shop

After having a great lunch at Nexus on Pan American Ave., we drove to see a few RA attractions and loved this one. You're right -- the locals having coffee aren't phased by the saucer on top.

No longer there. Replaced with a new generic type sign.

Satellite Coffee uses a space age brand logo at other locations, so did the saucer fall victim to someone's penchant for neatness?
