“OMG--I am in love with tamale cakes and the eggs benedict”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2012

We ate dinner here as well as breakfast. For dinner my husband had the fried trout and tamale cakes and I had the blue corn fried rainbow trout---but it was the chipotle aioli that was so delicious. And the tamale cakes were unique and just perfect. We split a blueberry crisp for dessert and my husband had a Monks ale with dinner. With tax before tip, our dinner was $40.42

Now breakfast---we each had orange juice and my husband had coffee. I ordered the Copper Canyon Eggs Benedict---I love eggs benedict and I will never look at them the same, after having them here. The eggs were served on those wonderful tamale cakes and the sauce was a red chili sauce with basil and goat cheese---OMG, to die for. So flavorful. My husband had the Sunrise Over Chama Valley and was very pleased with his choice. Our grand total with tax and before tip was $28.76. This was the best breakfast I have had in a long time. The creator of the Copper Canyon Eggs Benedict needs a bonus check this Christmas.

“Trout Breakfast Yum!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

We drove up from Albuquerque for breakfast with friends. Two of us had Pinion nut pancakes good but not outstanding. Two of us had eggs and trout and that was excellent! It is an attractive place and has nice gift shop where I found some reasonable gifts for friends.

Thank You for taking the time to post your review of your recent visit to Abiquiu Cafe. We are working very hard to make all our ratings five star. The Trout and Tamale cakes is one of our most popular breakfast dishes, so happy you enjoyed your meal! One Guest discribed the Trout as FLIPPIN Fresh. Hope you make it back this way. Happy Trails!

“luke warm food - great flavor”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012

We had a great stay at the ABQ inn and I will definitely stay there again. We ordered the eggs benedict which was GREAT, exept it wasn't very hot. The basil, goat cheese combo with the red chili is really wonderful. Our service was good and our room was great. The staff is very accomodating and professional.
