Brought my adult daughter here to relax and catch up. We tried the green chile cheese sweet potato fries and loved them. We followed with the soup/half sandwich lunch (cream of celery with parmesan plus a half Sangre de Cristo sammie). You can taste the "homemade" part. Yum!

The Greenside Cafe has great "home cooked" meals for a good price. The meatloaf is like Mom used to make and the mashed potatoes are the best and you can't beat the chicken fried steak is excellent & enough for two! We love the Greenside!

We were traveling from Santa Fe along the Turquoise Trail and stopped here for a bite. Everything is clean, fresh and the staff is nice😃 Our burgers were cooked just right.

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
