Where can I find a coffee flavored Yule Log in Albuquerque?

Does anyone know where I can buy a coffee flavored yule log (Buche de Noel)? I wasn't sure where to start looking and didn't want to go to all of the bakeries in town to find one. Any suggestions?

I'm pretty sure that the Whole Foods bakery carried these in the past (Academy & Wyoming). You might want to call first - although I doubt anyone will carry a coffee-flavored version - they're mostly chocolate.
The French Rivera Bakery on 4th Street has Yule Log Cakes...not sure about coffee ones.

Sorry to bother you and a little off-topic here, but I was google-researching some old Albuquerque bars and saw your post saying you actually waitressed there (Alfalfa's) at some time.

My band (from Colorado) used to play there sometimes, usually Alfalfa's. What I was trying to find out is, I remember Alfalfa's was on Lomas (I think) but I can't remember the address or intersection.

If you get time and if you remember, could you please either post here the address / intersection where it was and/or email it to me if it's convenient?

My name is not Grumpy, but Alfalfa's was located on Lomas and Quincy.

Thanks.  Found it.

Boy has it changed.  Much appreciated.  Lots of good memories there.

Bought one at Le Chantilly last weekend. Pay by the pound, it wasn't more than $20 and was very good.
Thanks everyone. I got one from Le Chantilly but haven't tried it yet. Sure hope it's good!
Alfalfa's used to be located a couple of blocks west of San Mateo on Lomas N.E.

Do you remember Canary who used to play in Denver at Mr. Lucky's?

Yup.  Remember Canary and we played @ Lucky's also.  Everybody played at Lucky's at one time or another.   Back then that part of Denver (Glendale) was hopping with clubs.  Now there's mostly only a few tittie bars.

My daughter ordered a Buche de Noel for our Christmas dinner from Cafe Paris on Eubank (near Consitiution), It was delicious. It wasn't cofee flavored, but I'm sure that particular cafe/bakery could do one on request.

La Quiche Parisienne Bistro has amazing yule logs in a variety of flavors (including coffee) available around the holidays. We've gotten one from them for the last two years and have enjoyed them thoroughly!

Actually, Alfalfa's (I found the building) was here:  4801 Lomas

Here's a google map - I'm sure this is the building.
