The owner of Pueblo Pottery recommended Church Street Cafe. We needed to consider what we should buy and we were hungry. What a find! Very tasty guacamole and salsa. Chips? Also 👍. We had one order chicken enchiladas and one, blue corn tacos. Both very yummy. Sides were beans, rice, and squash. 🌮🌮🌽🌶. Nice Margueritas We tried them all-I loved... More

A group of 12 of us went out to dinner without a reservation. They quickly accommodated our large group and gave separate checks. The food was the best I had during my say in ABQ. It is authentic Mexican food. Everything was well prepared. I had a taco salad and they even asked if I wanted guacamole and sour cream... More

Visited on a busy Saturday night and we seated promptly. The waitstaff was busy but still had time to explain items on the menu. The manager stopped and explained some of the history of the building. The food was excellent and portions we decent.

Loved this place. We were seated in the back garden which was a true treat. Nice relaxing atmosphere to enjoy our lunch together in Old Town. There was a lot of food - good food!!!! We did feel the margaritas were on the weak side but the sangria margarita was delightful. We would definitely come here again!!

I'm a local but if I go to Old Town, this is where I eat. From the outside the Church Street Café appears small but don't be fooled -- it meanders through multiple rooms and even another patio tucked away in the back. The food is Mexican/New Mexican and homemade, so you won't be disappointed.

My family and I ate here during our summer vacation a few weeks ago. The food was very good and the atmosphere was excellent. The history of the building is very interesting and adds to the charm of the restaurant.

We chose this restaurant due to good reviews we read. It's a very charming building with friendly staff, conveniently located in Old Town. We expected authentic southwestern food but ended up wondering if our menu choices did not represent their specialties. We had frozen lime margaritas (which were made with wine) upon the recommendation of our server, and enjoyed them.... More

Sorry to say, and I don't like to write a bad review, but the food was just not as good as the last time we were here. The service was excellent and the drinks were good. The atmosphere is lovely but sadly we will not return.

Not only did we have absolutely superb food, but this restaurant was dog friendly! We were walking around Old Town Albuquerque and decided to have lunch at Church Street Cafe since they allowed us to have our dogs in the shade provided by umbrellas. The food was awesome! The place is an old home from the early 1700's and you... More
