Address - 23 N. Main St., Roswell, NM
Hours - Open: 6:30am       Close: unknown
(they probably close at 9 or 10 on weekdays, possibly later on weekends)

This is the alien-themed restaurant owned by Liz Parker's parents, and where Liz and Maria, and eventually Michael work. The menu items are named after space and alien-related things.

The cafe has been in the ownership of the Parkers for three generations. It was originally called Parker's Bar, but after the '47 crash it was renamed the Crashdown Cafe. (Sndtrk). Currently Jeff & Nancy Parker own the Crashdown, and the Parkers live above the Cafe.

The Crashdown appears in many of the episodes, and lots of things important to the show happen there. The most important, of course, is in the pilot episode, when Liz is shot in the Crashdown and healed by Max.

The gang hangs out at the Cafe all the time.

Crashdown Floorplan

I made these floorplans by closely watching the episodes.
Some furniture and items changed around in various episodes, and I may have
gotten some proportions a bit wrong, but these are good representations.

Crashdown Wall Mural


I Photoshoped several images together to get a complete view of the mural.
That's why it looks a bit strange in places.
