The Greenside Cafe is my favorite new place to hang out at when I'm in between appointments showing Albuquerque East Mountain Real Estate. The Greenside Cafe isn't new, it's been open for awhile, but it wasn't until recently that I actually stopped in.
The cafe is located right by the Triangle grocery on the Turqoise Trail National Scenic Byway in Cedar Crest NM. That's also known as NM HWY 14.
In case you don't know, Cedar Crest is on the East side of the Sandias where the scenery is a little greener. Hence the name "Greenside" Cafe.
There's a nice outdoor patio where you can sit and enjoy the green views and enjoy the weather. It's almost always a little cooler up here in on the green side.
Or perhaps you prefer to sit inside. It's nice in there too.
Inside is pretty cool too, there are nice colors on the walls and some cool artwork that makes the interior feel more contemporary than many of the other little east mountain hangs. The service and the food are very good, and the servers are usually very friendly.
Let's go out and look at Cedar Crest Homes for Sale together. Maybe afterward we can stop at the Greenside for Happy Hour!
Here's a few more photos of the Greenside Cafe (view their menu online) and the surrounding businesses too:
