Do not miss this if you love Mexican food and be sure to try and eat in the garden in back. All the traditional foods you expect from a multi-generational Mexican family restaurant and great burgers too for travelers looking for a break from the chili. Wonderful margaritas and friendly top notch service in a beautiful relaxed setting made this... More

The food and location are wonderful. I had the posolie soup and a cup of green chili soup. As good as either gets. Salsa and chips are free and salsa is some of the best I have had. Server was slow and scatter brained but fortunately we did not deal much with her. If ever in the area I suggest... More

Located in Old Town, Church Street Cafe is a landmark, albeit easy to miss. The patio is a slice of heaven and the food is excellent. It has become my go to place for lunch when travelling through Albuquerque. Highly recommend.

We were unable to get a table for dinner at any of our regular favorite restaurants in ABQ so decided to try the Church Street Café as we had walked past it on many occasions and it looked rustic and welcoming. Indeed, the period building is quite charming and in a good location in "old town" but that's where the... More

A woman in a gallery recommended we go to the Church St. Cafe when we were in Old Towne in Albuquerque NM. That day (Sunday) at about 2pm, we were seated and the place was very busy. I don't eat a lot of hot foods or am I familiar with Tex-Mex or which ever adjective applies here. I had a... More

This restaurant enjoys a terrific location in the Old Town area of Albuquerque and is situated in a heritage house. The decor and ambiance are exceptional and it is an ideal opportunity for a relaxing snack and refreshment. I cannot however recommend ordering a meal. The service was pretty good but the food was very disappointing. We have consumed a... More

Enjoyed the food and service at this restaurant in Old Town Albuquerque. The only negative is trying to find parking on the street. Wonderful atmosphere and friendly welcome.

The food is good and well-prepared., although our tortilla chips were hard, not crispy. The service was very brusque, and we had to hunt our waiter down to get all of our dinner.

I love this restaurant and took out-of-state friends there for lunch. I was very disappointed with the inattentive service, slow service, etc. But the worst punch was that I had to ask twice for the sopaipillas, which should have been served hot with our meals. When they finally arrived they were flat, flat, flat and room temperature. The server told... More
