Visited this place for breakfast and decided to have the Southwest Eggs Benedict. I loved their take on Eggs Benedict. The green chile biscuit was amazing as was the jalapeno hollandaise. Also has a blood orange mimosas, it was very tasty.

A nice little space in downtown Albuquerque for coffee or maybe a mimosa. I especially like the outside sidewalk seating. Very nice staff. Was a little disappointed with our breakfast though, it was ok. Happy travels.

We loved our breakfast at Gold Street Caffe. Out Groupon made it very inexpensive and was an incentive to drive downtown merely for breakfast. The Caffe is relatively small with a few tables on the sidewalk, four or five tables upon entering, and a long and narrow, raised area at the rear. It reflects the ambiance of Albuquerque perfectly. The breakfast menu is small but diverse. I agree with previous reviewers regarding the southwest eggs benedict. They are really, really good. The chile biscuits used as the base are a big part it as they would be wonderful on their own. My poached eggs were perfect, the chile bacon added even more flavor and the chile cream sauce - which smothered it all - made it irresistible. The accompanying herb skillet potatoes were very tasty and of a generous portion. My husband ordered the omelet for which one can choose three fillings. The mushrooms and spinach were fresh, and the just-right amount of cheese made it a filling and delicious meal. The same potatoes are served alongside. Our waiter - I think his name was Jose - was attentive, funny, informed and just a really nice person. Prices are about average for this part of the city and portions are more than adequate. There were a lot of diners when we were there on a weekday mid-morning, and all seemed to be local. We will certainly return even without a discount. There are many more breakfast offerings to sample and the lunch menu looked appealing.

The restaurant isn't particularly close to us but we had a Groupon. These encourage us to get out and try new places.

We liked the fact that at lunch time, you can order from the breakfast menu as well as the lunch menu. So, we had the Southwest Eggs Benedict and a burger. We both felt we made the best choice.

The eggs are on a green chile biscuit (which carry a significant amount of heat) and crispy bacon. The eggs were cooked perfectly and the combination was fabulous. The potatoes were also cooked well - a little crispy on the edges and soft in the center.

The burger was also cooked well and the fries were very well done with the crispy, well seasoned outside and tasty middle. The iced tea was mango flavored.

The restaurant was busy but our server did a good job checking on us while taking care of everyone else. We can see why this is a popular cafe.
