“Tall pines serves beer and wine made in New Mexico. They have the best outside patio in Ruidoso. You can sit and drink and watch the street traffic. They have live music often. They sell local arts and crafts, very unique items. Limited food menu eat before or after your visit. Many people have pizza delivered . The owners are the nicest people you could hope to meet. They want you to enjoy your experience at Tall Pines. Tall pines also has a chalet they rent nightly. It's super cute and in a great location.”

Cafe
“The Cork and Kettle is one of my favorite little finds in Ruidoso. This little gourmet shop serves coffee, does wine tastings, and will even fix you a snack tray while you sample a glass of wine and play checkers. Laid back, fun place to meet friends, try some wine and shop for serendipitous finds!”
