Nice, small diner for lunch

We stopped for lunch and had a turkey club and turkey/bacon sandwiches. They had plenty of flavor, and were big enough to satisfy the empty spot. It was a nice change from the Plaza restaurants because it is on the south side of town, and was not hard to get to or park. We had no wait time for... read more

Set in a dusty gravel patch, with the front door open, this place was a last resort with all the traffic and construction. Just your basic lunch diner food.

We were driving up from Albuquerque and planned to look for some place to eat in Taos. We spotted this little place just before we got into town and were hungry, so we went in. Many of the patrons were locals, based on the staff calling them by name. There even was a table with 4 local law officers---all a... More

The girl who waited on me looked like she would rather be anywhere else but there. I said good morning and asked if I should order from the counter and she rudely said, "no it's table service". Imth

We stopped for lunch when my daughter, a coffee aficionado, was visiting. In addition to excellent coffee, we enjoyed delicious sandwiches and courteous services. Will visit again. Looking forward to sitting outside in warmer weather.

We loved the espresso drinks. I had some delicious oatmeal, served with granola and steamed milk. My husband had a terrific sandwich. We would have returned during our visit, but they were closed until after New Year's Day.

I made a quick lunch stop here while passing through town and was pleased. There are many healthy options with the favorite being the Veggie Bowl... grilled veggies on rice. This was also the first place on my swing through NM that offered hard taco shells... maybe not traditional for southwestern food, but a welcome option. The service was efficient... More

We had an ok breakfast here but I was bothered by one thing: I didn't want a full breakfast plate so I ordered my food a la carte. When it came, the waitress just gave me the breakfast plate closet to what I ordered for $3 more. Seems a bit trivial, but I just wanted what I ordered..... The food... More

I liked the name of the place, so I stopped by for breakfast. The waitress clearly saw me come in and didn't seem to be too busy, but never greeted me and seemed unhappy to serve me. Had a breakfast sandwich, which was very average.
