As suggested by its name, Silver City began as a mining town at the height of the prospecting boom in the 1800s and has survived a long Wild West history that hosted such notorious notables as Billy the Kid and "Dangerous Dan" Tucker. Evidence of its even earlier history can be seen at the nearby Gila Cliff Dwellings National Monument, where ancient homes of the Mongollon Pueblo still stand. Hikers, cyclists and outdoors enthusiasts flock to explore the scenery of the Gila National Forest.

I ordered a salad with grilled chicken which was quite tasty. My husband ordered a chicken dish (hot) that he said lacked flavor. At the host stand you are asked if you want the dining room or the parlor. Patrons can order off both menus in the dining room, but only the more pub like menu in the parlor.

Wonderful outdoor patio here in the Southwest, partially covered as you enjoy your cup of coffee in any weather!
The coffee menu is right. The cappuccino or cafe latte is excellent. When you listen hard, you can hear Silver City purring. Artists, retirees, writers, failed hippies, successful hippies, regulars and those who show just occasionally. Why Javalina? If you have to ask that, you have to ask, Why Silver?

The clerk who took our order went above and beyond what most people do these days. Our daughter ordered something she'd tried before at a different DQ and asked if she could get something like that here. The clerk said, "Sure, whatever you want." She made it perfectly, in fact better than our daughter had before. Thank you clerk 13! And you did it with a smile, too. We'll be back!

Great service, Great value, friendly people. Went back the next day and the coffee was even better. A great place to socialize and relax from a long day of running around.

In addition to trinkets and things to set around your house and decorate your walls, you can find candy and ice cream. Didn't try any of it, but I'm sure it was fine. Clerks were friendly enough but were visiting with others.

Vicki's Eatery is one of our regular restaurants and we can take our dogs for outdoor dining. We usually go for lunch. Breakfasts are great but are only served on the weekends. I wish they would serve breakfast all week. The dogs get a dish...MoreHi Albert008, Glad you and your pups enjoyed your breakfast. We love sharing our patio with leashed, well behaved dogs. Vicki's

Little Toad Creek produces craft beer and spirits... These are available at the tasting room as well as other New Mexico beer, spirits, and wine. A hearty wholesome pub food menu is made fresh from scratch. Enjoy live music on the weekends.
Beer and cocktails were good our server started off fine and then was nowhere to be found. Bartender seemed checked out as well. Neither were attentive and disregarded people who came in looking for a late dinner.
Also the Tax added directly to beer price and then taxed again on the whole total of the bill...didn’t seem normal.

Ok, good coffee/coffee specialty drinks, served with the perfunctory nice baked goods, snacks, etc. But, as comfy & laud-back as this place is, what sets it apart is it’s clientele - about as an eclectic, interesting, loony-tune menagerie of local students, high-Plains Desert-rats, pseudo-intellectuals - to - dumber-than-artichokes-wanna-be’s as you’ll find anywhere. Really interesting & entertaining. Net/net: this place is a hoot.

Jalisco, located in a charming old building at the south end of Silver's main drag, Bullard St, has a well-rounded menu of New Mexico favorites and their red enchiladas (my personal favorite) are second only to those at Nancy's, up at the other end of Bullard.

This is a really cute coffee shop with great service and great coffee. I ordered a macchiato and my mom ordered a Chai tea and they were both really good and fresh. We also had their breakfast burritos and they were so good with scrambled eggs, spinach and a hatch chili salsa it was very good. They have books and games it was a really nice coffee shop. Would definitely recommend to anyone.
