A great gem in the east mountains. The staff is very good and I have never had a bad meal. I do wish they would reopen for breakfast, which was great when they were open.

This restaurant is very good for the area since there aren't a lot of restaurants in this area. You can get a good meal at a fair price. It's clean and the atmosphere is nice.

The food is okay but the prices were high for what was offered. The atmosphere is nice but can be noisy when lots of families are there.

Visit almost every week for Sunday brunch. Great food, good menu, and great service. Consistent quality with a good atmosphere. Get there early on Sunday or the fresh cinnamon rolls will be gone. Coffee is consistently good. The chefs always deliver perfectly prepared dishes.

Stopped in for lunch with a friend who was visiting from out of town. We both got a half a sandwich, Monte Cristo (which was yummy). I got the soup and my friend ordered a salad. She asked for a special salad and the waitress was very accommodating. The soup was ok, the place is nicely decorated, and the food... More

I ate there about a week ago. Every time I go in the food is great, it's CLEAN and the Manager/Owner comes to make sure all is well. This is the best place to eat in Cedar Crest.

My wife and I ate lunch recently at the Greenside Café. Her meatloaf sandwich was OK, but nothing special. Some lettuce in the side salad was a bit tired and needed to be sorted out from the pile. My barbeque beef sandwich was a bit dry. The ground beef was more hard than tender, as if it had been overcooked.... More

We stopped for lunch at the Greenside Café in Cedar Crest as we started our trip up the turquoise trail between Albuquerque and Santa Fe, New Mexico. It seemed to take a while to get service initially, the fact that we arrived well after normal lunch time might have had something to do with that. The menu is extensive and... More
