“Absolutely Fabulous”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2013

This facility maintains the cultural elements of the area, a beautiful outside patio and an excellent menu. Service staff is great. Amazing "B and B" rooms and a casita are available and they are unequaled, so for an overnight or a longer visit, this site is fabulous.

“I LOVE THIS PLACE”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2013

Every time I go to Mesilla I always stop at Josefina's and have brunch or breakfast or lunch...it's a charming sweet little place. The food is yummy and we always sit outside. They have a nice menu and live music on the weekends...when they are open for dinner as well and breakfast & lunch. Try it, you'll like it.

“Perfect Lunch Spot”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2013

The ambiance is great, a gorgeous patio or comfy indoor seating. They even serve hot tea in china pots! We love the breakfast papas and the tuna stuffed in avocado. And delicious desserts! It's a must stop in Mesilla, right off the plaza!

The food is delicious and reasonably prices. Kathleen Foreman, the owner, is usually visiting with guests and her staff is wonderful. The restaurant is in an old home in Mesilla very close to the Plaza.

“Beautiful Rest. a must stop!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2013

This place is so beautiful and charming you must stop here when in Mesilla. It is just north of the Plaza and can be missed easily. The gate out front is historic and so is the adobe the restaurant is in. Great food go for breakfast on weekend mornings live music and listen to the church bells ring very quaint. Also they have an antique store which sometimes is open. It is also a B&B with great casitas to stay in. Do not miss this super cute place!
