We have eaten at Church Street Café many times. The first time we ate there was for breakfast and we sat in the patio. It was such a nice break from a cold New England winter! We loved it. The waiter was very friendly and the breakfast was great. We have also returned for lunches and dinner. It has a... More

We wanted a choice of something besides Mexican food for lunch today, had a nice choice here. I got a vegetarian while my husband chose a Rueben. Chips with a homemade (there in the restaurant) salsa were provided while we waited. Perfect weather allowed us to enjoy seating on the patio. Wonderful service. Decent prices.

I was in Old Town during the recent Founders Day celebration and was looking for a good place for lunch. I asked a local merchant, she recommended Church Street Cafe and she was right. What a lovely restaurant with each room decorated in a different style. I was sorry that I didn't know about the big patio in the back... More

We ate here in recommendations from our motel and trip adviser but were disappointed in the quality if the food given the cost. Drinks were on the pricey side, sure they did come with corn chips and salsa. We ordered the pork tamales which were heavy and the pork was hard to find, not a lot of satisfaction when we... More

We live a few miles from old town Albuquerque and have lived there for over 20 years. There are a lot of good places to eat New Mexican food, but this is our favorite. Located behind the church in the plaza, it looks small from the entrance, but runs deep. If available, you must sit in the back courtyard. The... More

We live a couple of blocks from this fine restaurant and like to bring visitors. The lady who owns the place is from a small town in northern New Mexico and, when she bought the place about 20 years ago, brought old family recipes with her when she moved to Albuquerque. One sunny but chilly fall morning I met her... More

Had appetizers and Sangria Margaritas on the back patio. Great service and interesting history of the place. Even if you don't eat there nice place to sit and enjoy a drink.

It is located in an old house with small intimate rooms. It was cool when we arrived and jokingly asked for a table by the fireplace and it was exactly where he took us. He even lit the fire for us. The service was great, it has a Mexican menu and the food was very good. The portions were large.... More

Looking on Trip Advisor to make my eating decisions while I am on vacation in Albuquerque. With 5 meals to eat during the time I am here, don't want to waste a choice on a restaurant that cannot show me a sample menu on line. Maybe next time
