I was looking for a nice little place to have breakfast and stumbled upon Marigolds. Their burrito is uniquely good for an area where everyone has one. Eating my way through a cinnamon roll right now and once again delicious. If you need a break from the Blake's and the wecks in your area I highly recommend itFood: 5/5


The Marigold menu is kind of all over the place... there is contemporary American, traditional New Mexican, and (Asian) Indian dishes, and fusions thereof. Everything was competent, but nothing stood out as special. The dining room is appropriately bright befitting the restaurant's name, and service is cheerful.


Nothing special. I feel like everything served here is bought prepared and just put together on the plate. The green chili cheese fries were soggy from microwaving the plate to melt the cheese. The salad was simple and the curry was more like a soup. If you like regular food it’s fine but far from anything special

I have not had many breakfasts in Albuquerque but this was my best most tasty breakfast burrito anywhere in quite some time. Sausage and green Chile with the regular ingredients. It was delicious. Just the right spice/heat. I'll eat breakfast here again when in Albuquerque.

What a diamond in the rough! Located in what appears to be an industrial / strip mall area, flanked by freeways on two sides, it surprises with its cleanliness and authenticity. A beautiful sunset mural filling one wall sets the tone, and lotus flower light installations hint at the East Indian influence on the menu.As for the food, this place has it all, as long as you're not looking for dinner. (They close at 2:30 p.m.) It's a coffee shop with your full selection of lattes and cappuccinos. It's a breakfast joint with everything from avocado toast to huevos rancheros. (According to Google reviews, the breakfast burrito supposed to be especially good, which is how I found it.) They do burger lunches and soups and snacks reminiscent of bar food.But what really sets it apart is that hint of East Indian cuisine: The menu includes samosas, a chicken tikka masala bowl, and mango lassie, to name a few. That feels like a real find in a little breakfast joint like this.The service was excellent and friendly, and the food seems to be made from high quality, fresh ingredients. My meal needed a little salt and pepper, but was otherwise very good. If this place was just down the street, I could see becoming a staple. Too bad it's location is a bit inconvenient. Actually, that's not quite right; it's not inconvenient, it's just off the beaten path. The place is actually very easy to drive to, but I doubt many people will find it by walking or driving past the sign, which is a bit of a shame, because it's very worth the visit.

Went there for lunch on a whim after I saw them online. Had the Chicken Pesto Panini with Onion Strips. The food was fresh and hot and came out very quick. Good service. And they don't skimp on the portions either. Very good value. Very tasty. I highly recommend.

Clean, pretty with a pleasant atmosphere. Order at the counter, nice patio. Delicious burger and a variety of other choices. Skip the onion petals. They're battered and have no real onion taste. I suspect they may be frozen.

I loved everything except green Chile strips which was over fried. The taste of other one is very good away so not taking away any stars for one bad day!

Best food I've found in Albuquerque!! Delicious food and friendly staff. The owner I met, he was very nice and helpful. Beautiful atmosphere. You absolutely have to try it!! If I could give it a 10 I would.

This place is great! Fresh ingredients, creative dishes, lots of amazing choices with a slight Indian flair. I saw at least four options I wanted. The coffee is really good. The decor is fresh and clean, and the service was fast and friendly. Highly recommended!


I discovered this place a couple of years ago, when I was staying at the Courtyard Marriott, scouting for a place to live in ABQ. We wandered across the parking lot because of the limited breakfast options at the hotel... and we were absolutely blown away by our experience.Marigold Cafe looks, perhaps, unassuming from the outside, but once you taste their food, you will understand that these people truly know how to make a delicious meal. That first time there, my partner and I both chose what is our favorite morning meal of all time--breakfast burritos: with bacon, smothered in xmas chile (both green and red chile, for the out of towners ?), and, ever since, we have been hard pressed to order anything besides these smothered wonders. The burrito contains an ample portion fluffy scrambled eggs, crisp bacon, and the most heavenly "Marigold hashbrowns." I can't overstate how good these hashbrowns are, both in terms of interesting flavor and texture, as they are perfectly soft in the center with an outside that stays crispy inside the burrito, even until the last bites.Lunch has tasty options, like the Tikka Mac n Cheese and the burgers, though I've mostly eaten here for breakfast. They also make a delicious chai tea latte, that tastes like it comes from a homemade blend, and the pastries are beautiful. I've been told that their Huevos Rancheros are quite tasty, but my first love will always be that burrito. Further, customer service has always been exceptionally friendly, including from individuals I suspect may be the owners/managers.Needless to say, we have been back many times, and it is the one non-negotiable stop when my out-of-town partner comes to visit. Check it out, and I hope you'll fall in love with this charming cafe like we have.

Vegan breakfast? You bet! They make a great breakfast taco. Not to big, not to small, and their own unique take on hash browns. They can sub eggs with tofu scramble. Decent coffee drinks.

Mary MacArthur

The BEST huevos rancheros I've ever had and the hash browns were light and crisp and delicious. You order at the register and your food is brought over when it's been prepared. No-frills but polite and friendly staff. And the food is so good.

Excellent restaurant in Albuquerque. Neat and clean. Excellent service. The breakfast food is not as flavorful as I'm used to in Texas and Louisiana but it is very good by New Mexico standards. We will return.
