It's the only place some of my parent's friends will eat at, I think it's kind of bland...nothing to write home about. Sometimes they will have interesting things on the menu. Not a bad place to sit and enjoy a glass of wine and a beer. Little pricey for what you get.

We live in the area and have eaten at Greenside fairly regularly since it opened. It seems the food has gone down in quality and gotten more expensive over time. We had dinner there tonight and were very disappointed. My husband had the Monte Cristo sandwich. It was cold and soggy and the cheese was not even melted. I almost... More

There are a few decent items on the menu, but I would like to see a few more healthy choices with less processed ingredients. The more I eat out in Cedar Crest, the more I want to cook at home.

Good food, but above average price for what you might expect. The atmosphere is calm and usually quiet.

I had lunch at the Greenside Cafe last week when I was up in Cedar Crest. The day was a bit chilly, threatening rain (but I couldn't resist sitting out on the patio, looking at the mountains). Ordered the goulash to warm up; it was pretty good, but the creme breule (sp.?) for dessert was fantastic. The service was efficient... More

Brunch was terrific and the coffee was worth going there just for that! The wait staff was friendly and funny and the menu very eclectic.

Our Biker compass was set for Madrid and beyond on Sunday when the storm clouds rolled in with high winds to boot at the top of Sandia Crest, so we head back down the mountain and decided to have lunch at Greenside Cafe on a whim as we passed by. What a find! This place has great food and a... More

Located in a most unlikely place: a strip shopping center off the highway. Go inside, and it's a comfortable, artsy, inviting place. We were greeted warmly by a friendly and engaged staff. The food was authentic, fresh and huge portions. I had the best green chile soup of my stay in New Mexico. Highly recommend!

Surprisingly, ended up back at Greenside Cafe while visiting friends. Tis time for a mid-afternoon snack. We ordered three appetizers to share, and all were good. The nachos were enormous (and good), the quesadilla quite tasty, and artichoke dip was delish. My first experience at this restaurant may have been an anomaly, and I'm willing to say my two subsequent... More
