I thought fish tacos would wow me - they did not. However, the charm of the restaurant and the friendly service for a table of 7 was great for a quick luncheon meal. Site was an easy walk from the Hotel Andaluz where our meeting was being held.

I've had eggs benedict from coast to coast and border to border. These were, hands down, the best I've ever had. Great environment and great staff. Possibly the best part of Albuquerque.

Six of us are visiting from Texas. We found this on Urban Spoon. We had eggs Benedict made with jalopeno biscuit with jalopeno hollandaise sauce. Scones were nice. Great adult beverages!

Walked in and was greeted immediately, fast, friendly and eager wait staff. Tyler took special care of everything we needed and checked on us often. Food was prepared quickly and very well. Tasted great with very generous portions. So good I came back the next morning.

The caffe might just have the best green chile cheese biscuits in town! These are large and full of flavor. We had the Cowboy Breakfast; scrambled eggs, mascarpone cheese and smoked ham, served in the biscuit. Oh and the potatoes, yum. The coffee is smooth,not bold, nor bitter. Friendly wait staff; pleasant always ready with coffee refills. This is my... More

Parking is abundant on Sunday morning on the street and nearby lots. I sat at one of tables on the sidewalk outside since it was... More

Visited this little place for breakfast and was pleased with the service, the food and the fact that they have outdoor seating. I enjoyed a very loose, yet flavorful, breakfast hash and my friend had a wonderful huevos plate with, apparently, very good coffee. The server was patient and attentive and the location made for great people watching while eating... More

Tucked on Gold and 3rd street, this little gem is a must-do in Albuquerque. I will definitely be back for more. Start with a raspberry or blueberry-white chocolate scone....you won't ever be able to eat another scone from anywhere else again! They are AMAZING!! I had the Southwestern Eggs Benedict, and my friend had the huevos rancheros. Both were delicious... More
