Final cheep: Uptown Le Peep ends 34-year run

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — The coronavirus pandemic has claimed another business.

Le Peep, a long-time breakfast and lunch spot in Albuquerque’s Uptown, closed its doors for the last time Monday.

The location at 2125 Louisiana NE was the last of several Le Peep locations around the city. Early last year, locations at 4921 Jefferson NE and 11004 Montgomery NE closed and were converted into Weck’s Select restaurants.

The closure came the same day that the new public health order barring indoor service at restaurants went into effect.

A post on the restaurant’s website announcing the closure also thanked its patrons for the support over 34 years in operation.
