This cafe proved to be a delicious spot for lunch that delivered on its reputation of the best grilled cheese. I ordered their three cheese grilled on sourdough with an addition of green chilis with a seasonal side of quinoa salad and two slices of sweet pickles. Everything was fresh and tasty. Service was great. You walk up to the... More

I really love going to this restaurant every time I have to go to ABQ!!!! I even sucked it up after I had a tooth extraction and ate the about 15m after my extraction. I had a delicious pastry first, then a sandwich salad combo. The sourdough bread is so delicious. There's nothing I wouldn't try here. Can't wait to... More

Went here for lunch on Saturday. There was a line but I didn't think it was too bad. The food is fabulous. I had the tomato mozzarella sandwich. Fresh made mozzarella on house made olive bread. It was so good. The coffee was also delicious and I'm a coffee snob. I look forward to going back.

Wow! Such a treat in town. All the high marks on this particular eatery are accurate. We went for breakfast, which i'm not a huge fan of; yet, this place was absolutely great way to start the day. I had the French crepes which were light with great flavor and he had the chile burrito. I was surprised to hear... More

Have a meal where "Walt" met his partner. This is an order it up front and they deliver to your table kind of place. Very busy and noisy the morning (Sunday) we were there. Kind of trendy sandwich-type menu but the food is good and not too expensive.

First, the place is busy and does have a line. But the line is really because of the goofy way they make the cashier prepare all of the drinks before you can pay and then find a table. I guess this helps other diners finish up so you can snatch the table... I tried the grilled cheese and veggie sandwich.... More

Pretentious atmosphere. Average overpriced lunch. They don't have diet coke. Desserts looked good. Very crowded at lunch to the point of claustrophobic. Not a bad place, just not for me.

A busy Sunday brunch during the Balloon Fiesta found us at the Grove. . . Yes, there's a wait to order, but the food is worth it. The flavor combinations in the Croque Madam are terrific, and my husband's scramble was perfect. We highly recommend it. Having the wait staff seat you and bring your food helps with the overall...

Cute little cafe that I come to every time I'm in Albuquerque (twice now). Love the atmosphere of this cute little place. They've added some outdoor seating since the last time I was here. Super relaxed and friendly staff members. You go to the counter, order drinks & food and grab a seat somewhere and the server will bring your... More

If I lived in Albuquerque, I would not be writing thei review. I would want to frequently go there, and the line is long enough. This place is wonderful and worth the wait in line. I had the best Roasted Tomato Soup that I have ever had. My Roasted Turkey sandwich was perfection. My husbands Breakfast sandwich was also perfection.... More
