Our hotel recommended the Church Street Cafe as the best place to eat in Old Town and he was truly right! We had no idea when going into the front room to give our name that we would be take back to a beautiful dining area, decorated with Mexican charm. The food was delicious and service was great! Highly recommend!!

We had a recommendation from the old town visitor center to eat at Church St. Cafe and I'm glad we did. The restaurant has multiple rooms offering a nice ambience both in and outside, great service and delicious food priced right! They even brought complimentary chips and salsa, and dessert to the table. There were some very annoying flies, without... More

This restaurant was recommended to me by my son and also clerk at Hotel Albuquerque. The food was great but the waitress was horrible! Seems like she was aggravated as it was just one person! I do not drink, so it's like she was calculating her tip before I even ordered! She never offered to refill my water, salsa etc.... More

This historic building on a little street in Old Town is a wonderful place to sit and visit with friends while enjoying amazing authentic food. The building itself is lovely. A small display in the main hallway displays high quality art that most simply walk past. This is a must see/do while visiting Old Town!! You won't regret it!

I was introduced to the famous Hatch green chile at Church Street Cafe in Old Town Albuquerque in 2007. Since then I've had the opportunity to partake of almost every item on the menu and haven't been disappointed. I enjoy the option of calabacitos (sautéed squash and corn) in place of rice as a side dish and also the proprietary... More

This is one of my favorite restaurants as the food is excellent, the restaurant picturesque, and the back patio delightfully cool even in the heat of summer. To add mystery to excellent cuisine, the restaurant is supposed to be haunted, by an agreeable spectre, of course.

On a 2-day visit to Albuquerque, I took the advice of my hotel clerk to visit Church Street Cafe, which was just down the street. From the friendly greeting to the fabulous food, I'm glad I took the advice. Enjoyed a couple of New Mexico beers with my complimentary chips and salsa. Then had the Steak Fajitas with corn tortillas... More

This somewhat hidden restaurant has great ambiance, especially on the incredibly outside patio where it stays cool even in the heat of the day. The food is some what variable, stick with the New Mexico specialties to be safe. Prices are reasonable and service is average.

Heard from several sources this was the place for Mexican food. Overall it was just OK. The ambiance was outstanding but the food and drinks were average. The sangria on the menu was a hybrid margarita and although tasty, wasn't quite as expected. Will be sure to check out other places.

Really cool restaurant in the historical Old Town area of Albuquerque. The food was really good and we enjoyed a couple of the local beers. The reason we couldn't give a higher rating is due to our waitress, "Waylan". She was so rude and even went as far as slamming her order book on the table when we asked for... More
