My husband & I stopped here for lunch while passing through. Service was excellent even with cafe being very busy! I have a very strict diet so I requested a grilled chicken breast with grilled onions. It came out perfect! Just what I wanted!! My husband got an amazing club sandwich on a crescent with fried asparagus & loved it!... More

This is inside a "mall" and has limited seating but is well worth the wait. The staff was very friendly and we had someone with altitude sickness and helped us with that. However, it is all about the green Chile burger. I am always looking for the "best" one. It is now my number 2 burger place the first is... More

I went here because the only BBQ joint in town was overflowing with people out the door for hours and someone said it was the best in town. I ordered the pastrami on rye and the pastrami was decent. It didn't have that faint smokey flavor really good pastrami has. For the price it could have had more meat on... More

I came here about a year ago and had Michael as my waiter. He was awesome. I came back one year later and he was even better. The food was great and he took great care of us. I really could not ask for more from a restaurant.!

Nice little diner adjacent to the ice cream shop. Burgers are very good. Nice people. A nice little dining area. Just a place to get a bite and people watch. Also serve sandwiches.

The breakfast at this cafe is great. Food is a bargain plus service is very good! We had green chili sausage gravy biscuits; unusual but very good.

Great food, awesome hamburger. We had a bit of a wait, the waitress said the grilled had cooled down and it was taking longer then normal for the food . She maid up with a huge basket of chips and salsa.

Cool vibe like the Cloudcroft Mountain air. Our server Michael was upbeat, attentive, and personable. The food was delicious, generous in portion, and cooked to perfection. I had the Billy Burger, truly gourmet! Glad we found Dave's because the barbecue joint down the street ran out of food....Good things happen for a reason!

We ate here 3 times during our stay in Cloudcroft. Breakfast is great & the dinner special was excellent. Seems to be very popular place so a short wait might be expected. We would definitely eat here again when we're back in Cloudcroft!

Great for lunch or dinner, Dave's Cafe is the place to go for the best burgers on the mountain. Any of their burgers are excellent. They have great sides as well, including one of our favorites, the fried mushrooms. This is a popular spot with the locals, and seating is limited, so get here early for lunch - or plan... More
