Can be crowded on weekends, but the breakfasts are delicious and plenty of food. Good coffee. Nice people, but not a dress up place. They also serve good Mexican food. Moderately priced.

We found this place had great reviews on Trip Advisor and Urbanspoon. We sat outside and enjoyed a delicious breakfast. The Spanish omelette was great. The staff were friendly and it appeared to be a local favorite.

This is not a large place so it can fill quickly. We went on a Saturday early and sat outside. We enjoyed our pancakes and the Eggs Benedict (which is just offered on the weekend). We had good service and regularly checked for coffee refills. The owner is wonderful wood worker and has some of his work for sale -... More

Had late breakfast at this quaint restaurant over weekend. Huevos rancheros were ok, however the chicken tortilla soup not so ok. Was excited to see the broth had that wonderful NM red chile but the taste was flat and honestly a little fishy ??? I know, didn't make sense to me either. Last winter Peña's Place was our breakfast burrito... More

Go early, because seating is limited, but you won't regret it. Pancakes, burritos, omelettes are all fantastic. Also, very close to Story Book Cabins.

We saw Pena's Place on the way to our cabin and decided to try breakfast there. Seeing the Trip Advisor logo on the door, I knew we couldn't go wrong. Yum yum. The food was great with plenty to eat for the money and the service was good. The place may be small but well worth eating at. Thanks again,... More
