We walked by and almost didn't stop. The signage makes it appear like a tiny place. When you enter it extends room after room to a delightful patio with lots of tables, pergolas and a fountain. Just charming. The building began as a house centuries ago and stayed in the same family until the current owners bought and extended it... More

We found this by accident walking around the Old Town looking for a mid morning breakfast, and am so glad we came across it. From the outside it looks deceptively small but opens up inside and has a nice dining area. I had the Heuvos Rancheros with red and green chile and it was fantastic. The rest of the family... More

We were told to go here by a few people so thought we would have a quick coffee and cake before hitting Route 66 again. We wanted to sit outside and we thought that would be a table out the front however we were ushered through the Restaurant to a lovely outdoor court yard. We ordered our "morning tea" and... More

Church Street Café is a wonderful restaurant in the middle of Old Town Albuquerque. It is located on the street behind the church. The food is delicious Mexican food, yet not too spicy (unless you get it smothered in green chili). The outside doesn't look like much but if it is a nice day ask for the patio. There is... More

I went for the Navajo fry bread, which alone is worth a visit. But theQ salad was incredible, loaded with dried cranberries, raisins, and fresh strawberries. It was so large, I saved half for dinner that night. The pastries looked deism, though I didn't try them.

The Church Street Cafe is built into and around a 300 year old house in Old Town right behind the Cathedral. To us it is one of the best restaurants for New Mexican cuisine in Albuquerque with an atmosphere second to none. They do not have a full liquor license; however, they make a terrific margarita with agave wine. We... More

Gentleman at Routes Bike shop recommended this place to my family for lunch before biking. As others mentioned, not large street frontage but the place is surprisingly big with a variety of inside and outside eating spots. Patio is charming with garden shade structures and a fountain. We had Mexican style items along with an entrée salad and a burger... More

A hidden gem hiding right in the middle of old town. We had pitcher of agave margaritas chips and guacamole. All excellent service! It was right there when we needed something but never imposing. A real old town experience not to miss.

Very unique restaurant. Wasn't sure of the place at the entrance so asked for a brief tour of the place and was more and more impressed the farther we walked toward the back. Because it was a Thursday, we were able to sit in the back patio/water fountain without a reservation. Liked my taco salad, lots of meat. The menu... More
