I made a quick lunch stop here while passing through town and was pleased. There are many healthy options with the favorite being the Veggie Bowl... grilled veggies on rice. This was also the first place on my swing through NM that offered hard taco shells... maybe not traditional for southwestern food, but a welcome option. The service was efficient... More

We had an ok breakfast here but I was bothered by one thing: I didn't want a full breakfast plate so I ordered my food a la carte. When it came, the waitress just gave me the breakfast plate closet to what I ordered for $3 more. Seems a bit trivial, but I just wanted what I ordered..... The food... More

I liked the name of the place, so I stopped by for breakfast. The waitress clearly saw me come in and didn't seem to be too busy, but never greeted me and seemed unhappy to serve me. Had a breakfast sandwich, which was very average.

Missed breakfast at our hotel so we dropped in at the Purple Sage for brunch. What a find!! Delicious food, clean establishment, friendly attentive staff. It's right on the main road with plenty of parking. We would definitely go back. We might have skipped it, had we seen the bad reviews some folks have left. Glad we gave it a... More

Had the nachos--cold and stale. No excuse for cold food. They were not crowded at all. My husband had a grilled sandwhich--also stale.

It has been about one year since I have been to this restaurant. The last time that I went the service was so poor I swore I'd never be back. Things haven't changed. The employees were very rude, and not friendly at all. The service was very very slow it'll be at least another year before I go back. I... More

Went to have lunch with some friends on July 8, 2014 around 1pm our waitress was very rude!! She practically threw our drinks at us. That was our first time in and will be our last time. Even if your having a bad day you don't need to take it out on customers we were trying to have a nice... More

Cafe was not busy so it didn't make sense for them to be rude and slow. Female waitress had the worst attitude, was not friendly or talkative

I went into this cafe several months ago, and it was a cross between a coffee shop and a restaurant, kind of a high end coffee shop with a big menu and table service. However, no one seemed to mind that I got a cup of coffee and sat at a table, plugged in my laptop and used the free... More
