Gold Street Caffe is a trendy, cozy little coffee shop and cafe in downtown Albuquerque. Featuring a menu of traditional breakfast favorites, as well as numerous specialty espresso drinks, it's a perfect place to enjoy a delicious weekend brunch in the city.
Gold Street offers a small breakfast menu and several specialty espresso drinks. One interesting selection is a peanut butter latte, which is basically espresso shots mixed with house made peanut butter sauce and steamed milk.
We ordered a basic Americano and Mocha and were quite pleased with the quality of the drinks. They brew the fantastic IIIy brand espresso.
The breakfast menu is comprised of your basic selections like omelets, buttermilk pancakes, and Belgian waffles. Although we did not try the pancakes, they sure looked delicious!
Lunch includes a small selection of light entrees such as salads, chicken & fish tacos, and sandwiches.
Pricing is pretty moderate for a downtown business with the average breakfast entree between $8-10.
Servers were very friendly, although a bit slow due to the packed house.
The design is hip and modern with exposed brick walls and high ceilings. Overall, it's a fun and happy place to start a lazy, relaxing weekend day. They also have an attractive outdoor seating area which is great for people watching. The entire place was busting on Sunday morning, and although busy, the space did not feel at all cramped.
Overall, Gold Street Caffe is one of the better brunch choices in downtown Albuquerque. If you are doing anything else in this area of town, it is worthy of checking out. An attractive dining room with large windows overlooking the area, tasty comfort foods, and quality espresso drinks, create the perfect ambiance for a weekend brunch in the city.
