Never been to any of these cafes - I was amazed at the selection they had. Breakfast all day or choose a burger...it's all your choice!

The salads at Flying Star are good, but expensive. The portions for the other items are quite small, especially at $11.00 and higher. The food is quite good, the locations are nice, clean, and modern. The staff is friendly, but although the tables are bussed...More

Never disappointed each and every time. Beautiful location and outdoor patio with fireplace. Extensive menu with a large variety of good, healthy and tasty selections. Bakery items are to die for!

We settled here after a day of sightseeing Albuquerque. They have a great menu for desserts. Our group had pie, milkshakes, tea, and coffee. Pastries are second-to-none. The staff was friendly. This could be a morning ritual.

This is a chain of restaurants in Albuquerque. Oddly, it seems to matter which location one goes to as to the quality that is served. We have found Rio Grande and Almeda are the best. Corrales is consistently underwhelming and extremely slow.

We were 9 again, and Sunday breakfast after church services. We were all seated together, and there was something for everyone, even those who needed gluten free, and vegetarian. We were crowded but able to converse along the table.
