I ate here three times. That is how good it is. The breakfast and lunch are terrific and the owner is so nice. It might take a while for your order to be ready, but it is worth the wait. Yum!

Great place for breakfast or lunch! Food is fresh and tasty. Lots of room on the outdoor patio for pooches and they have shade. Would definitely recommend. Had the special burger with bacon and egg! Yummy.

There is only so much Mexican food you can eat before you crave something different. This little cafe really delivers on different! We ordered a Club sandwich with Cole Slaw and a grilled Chicken and mixed Green Salad. Both orders were perfect. This is also a coffee shop with one of our favorites, Chai Tea with espresso, don't knock it... More

This cafe is delightful! It is located in historic Mesilla, in an old adobe home. The coffee is delicious, as is the food. Everything is fresh, visually pleasing, and yummy! The patio is a beautiful place to sit. I love the pig by the door! The owner is very involved in the business. She greets everyone who walks through the... More

We always assumed this was just another Mexican food restaurant. We love the stuff, but enough is enough. So it was a pleasant surprise when we dropped in on a whim and discovered so much more. Lots of great salads, sandwiches, breakfast items, and yes, Mexican food. We both had paninis and they were superb. Very cute decor, sparkling clean,... More

Cafe de Mesilla (formerly El Comedor) has been transformed into a breakfast/lunch place in historic Mesilla. The chairs are the same, the walls have recently been painted bright contrasting but comfortable colors. It is a friendly environment with art work on the walls. The breakfast dishes are delicious as are the sandwiches. Great place to sit and chat in a... More

Unique restaurant with a southwest flair. Omelettes are superb, the red sauce is hearty and mildly spicy, everything is prepared fresh and with care.
