calorie and guilt-free hugs


Who doesn’t love a great breakfast? Locals in Albuquerque, New Mexico are served more than great pancakes, burgers, or shakes—each treat comes with a side of hugs. Tim’s Place has been dubbed the “world’s friendliest restaurant,” dishing out hugs as well as food to hungry customers.

Owner Tim Harris has made it his mission to hug every visitor who comes in. Harris, a victim of Down’s syndrome, is anything but. He’s never let his disability get in the way of anything, especially his dream of owning a restauaurnt. The Albuquerque hotspot menu serves up “calorie and guilt-free hugs” in addition to Mexican and traditional American staples.
