4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014 NEW

I've dined here on a number of occasions and have never been disappointed. The prices are very fair for the quality of food received, the staff is friendly, the chips home made and excellent and any of the stews are excellent. For a casual dinner and enjoyable atmosphere, this affordable cafe is a real find!

Thanks to the staff at SW Cafe for a great night out. We enjoyed the soup, the savory green chili and the enchiladas. Felt like I was transported to New Mexico. To the owner, Barb, thank you! And to the staff, keep it up!!

We love the atmosphere, the reasonable prices, the friendly service, and the yummy food. When we travel we miss the Southwest Cafe and always have to go there when we return to get our "fix".

If you like tasty, healthy, and fresh Southwest food, this offers it up. We eat here regularly, in the restaurant and get take-out. Love the art work and colors of the place. Fun to eat outdoors, too. The owner, Barbara, and her staff are wonderful. Many of the staff here have been here a long time so it feels like... More

I usually always eat at the southwest cafe for Saturday dinner, but today something happened that made me feel obliged to write a review.

Great tuna tacos with a spicy sause ! The tuna is very fresh and very tasty. Virtially all your favorite Mexican/Southwestern selections are on the menue. The service is excellent with great attention to your food and drink needs. The only drawback is.....it is very small and at times, noisy. Outdoor seating is available only during the warmer months.
