If you like chile, the menu is great. If you don't, well, good luck. The service was absolutely horrible; we had to ask for silverware and the coffee we had ordered. When the waitress finally showed up to check on us, she commented on our needing drink refills, but we had to flag down another waitress to actually get them.

Had a quick breakfast with my husband this morning. He had Southwest Eggs Benedict with home fries. I had a Belgian waffle with spicy glazed bacon. Great food, friendly staff. Would definitely come back next time in town

We were visiting from out of town and staying in a nearby hotel. We found the food at Gold Street Cafe to be very good and the service to be very friendly. There are plenty of options and we loved the scones, served with house made raspberry jam. The coffee was very good too! We ate there twice in two... More

We asked the Hotel desk where they would go in the neighborhood for breakfast. They recommended the Gold St Caffe and I must say it was a great recommendation! The food is great and so was the service. Not a huge menu, yet they have a real nice variety. In addition to the items on the menu, they also have... More

I live in downtown ABQ and really wanted to give this place a positive review. To start it is in a great location on a beautiful tree lined block. The outdoor seating is great and the decor inside is nice as well I went on a weekday with a group of 5 people. When we arrived the hostess and waitress... More

I heard this place gets good reviews, but unfortunately I can't say the same. Service was not good. Too slow, no real caring in play. Food wax okay, but not worth the price. Potatoes, undercooked. Bacon way undercooked, and super greasy. Coffee okay, but not nearly hot enough. Then the bathrooms. Disgusting. Really needs to be cleaned. This says more... More

A few years ago I reviewed the Cafe, a rave review. This time, I'll never go back. Too long a wait for food or a coffee refill. Typically, once I get my food; I forget the wait. This time, we were told they were busy and had run out of food. I think I should have run out at that... More

Our restaurant is currently going through some changes in the kitchen, but there is no excuse for underwhelming food.

Three orders of egg burritos, one with jalepano sausage, and one order of scrambled eggs. All meals were lukewarm. We couldn't find any sausage in any burrito, asked waitress and she said sorry we're out of sausage. When got bill, was charged for sausage. Service poor and very slow. Not all that crowded but took 30 minutes between order and... More

Just are at Gold Street Caffe, which is actually on Gold Avenue. The southwest Benedict is a great take on eggs Benedict with red chili glazed bacon, green chili biscuits, and jalapeño hollandaise. It comes with a side of papas (potatoes) -- killer. Also had the peanut butter latte -- great!!!!!
