in 2014, my son & I stopped in the No Pity café for lunch. We both enjoyed the soup & sandwich... We like the atmosphere of nice small town Southwest lost in the past... The lunch was worth the stop...Fred Willis Nigro, LSMO

This is a small place right in the middle of Madrid, NM, and was recommended to us by a resident of Madrid. The food was incredible. Fine dining in the $7-11 range, and a very casual atmosphere. I would love to write a review.
