My wife and I love the breakfast burrito at this cafe. We ordered the burrito with green chili. You can get red or "Christmas" as your other choices. We sat out back among the grape arbor on a mild summer day. What a pleasant little garden spot to share a meal. The service was quick and efficient. The meal was... More

There was a group of 15 of us - and not one of us was able to finish the meal - so much food! I had the taco salad and one of my friends had the soft tacos. Lots of meat in both. Our waiter was on his own with us but got all the orders right and was efficient... More

Service good, food terrific for me. A little to spicy for the husband. Decor is amazing. The building and the history of it an the family are worth the visit. Margaritas had just the right amount of tartness. Owners were friendly and make you feel right at home.

After eating at several better known restaurants in the Albuquerque area over an 8 day period, we decided we wanted to eat in Old Town and didn’t care about the food. My wife wanted to sit outside. Walking behind the San Felipe church, we found this gem. The restaurant is BEAUTIFUL, inside and out. Smaller rooms with both tables and... More

After reading the TripAdvisor reviews, we came for lunch at Church Street Cafe. The portions are large and, just when we thought we were stuffed, our server brought us complimentary sopapillas. Definitely stop here when visiting Old Town!

I should say it was surprisingly good based on our initial impressions of the unprepossessing front of of the restaurant. The restaurant is much bigger inside than expected. The food was good. Our party ordered a variety of food. The ground meat tacos were good but not exceptional. The posole was very good but if you don't like spicy food... More

We ate breakfast here and the food and server were fine. The hostess seemed completely indifferent. The restaurant itself was nicely decorated. We were seated near a window; the screen was in need of cleaning and the curtain had what looked like a ketchup stain on it, but nothing that would make us not go back. The kicker came after... More

I ordered a bowl of menudo. I got a bowl of posole. I ate it anyhow and did not complain. I was starved. But, you can get much better posole in Albuquerque at a much better and tastier price, I then was still hungry so I ordered menudo again! This time I got boiled water and a few pieces pof... More

Loved the food, genuine New Mexican fare. Reasonable prices, outside or inside dining. Be sure to check out the back patio with the waterfall.
