The Albuquerque ABC affiliate KOAT reports Tim's Place is closing and will serve its last meal on December, 20, 2015. Hurry and you still have a chance to get a yummy breakfast and a hug from Tim Harris.

Had breakfast here and the waiter was excellent and on top of things especially on keeping my coffee cup full. Thanks Berry! Great food at a reasonable price. Only bad part is I heard they are closing their doors December 20th. Moving to Colorado. Glad I had the chance to eat there! Go grab some good food before they close.... More

Tim is a wonderful person and so is all his stuff. This truly is a family restaurant in the best sense and you will not find staff anywhere that is more friendly and accommodating than here! And the breakfast is so good I wouldn't go to any other place in Northern New Mexico ever again! Simple but made with love!... More

We visited Tim's Place after a morning visiting the AIBF for kind of a brunch. The menu is fairly simple, but everything on it sounded great. My partner had the more traditional breakfast with two eggs, bacon and potatoes. The eggs were ordered over easy and came out perfect. Even though it was a little early for lunch, I had... More

My husband and I went in for breakfast one weekend, and we had a great experience. The menu has plenty to choose from without being overwhelming. I had the French Toast with berries, and my husband had the French Toast but traditionally. Both were excellent. We even got to meet Tim and get a hug! The restaurant is open for... More
