I couldn't believe it when we got to the Tune Up Café. I had eaten here in 2006 when it had another name. We came for breakfast this time and were not disappointed. I had the breakfast burrito with green chilies. It was great! They make everything fresh. So if you have someone with special food needs like we did... More

We came here for breakfast after many recommendations. When we got there, there was quiet a large line to order , out the door! It moved fast and there was enough tables for everyone so we didn't wait long. I had the gluten free blue corn waffles, they ware amazing!! Coffee was ok. Service perfect

Always crowded, always good. Great experienced wait staff. Fun to see a waiter carry six salads down one arm and something else in another. No one minds the tight seating. Locals and tourists visit this little restaurant that churns out every dish is a great dish. My husband on the recommendation of an eavesdropping diner chose the chile rellano. Unfortunately,...

We ate here twice in a week and enjoyed everything. The mole sauce and the squash soup were highlights. Casual atmosphere with porch or indoor seating. Attentive waitstaff.

It was just OK. Probably on the healthy side (local, organic, etc.), yet $38 is way too high for a burger w/ watermelon "juice" and salmon tacos.

Mid afternoon lunch turned to long conversation aided by the sunny atmosphere. Order at the counter and your meal is delivered quickly to your table. Outdoor as well as indoor seating, Tune Up is a good place to 'tune up' your emotional batteries and relax for a bit.

We ate here a number of times during a recent visit to Santa Fe. The food is very good. The ingredients are fresh and the service is friendly and responsive. The menu is pretty varied and not too expensive. We ate breakfast, lunch, and dinner here and would certainly return on future visits to Santa Fe.

We had a difficult time finding a place to park, but that's my only complaint. Food is fresh, inexpensive and served quickly. Good breakfast!

Nice breakfast on our way to the Folk Art Market. Beautiful fresh flowers. Fresh squeezed orange juice which is a little hard to find these days. Looks like a favorite neighborhood spot.

I love breakfast and have eaten here a few times. Their breakfasts are outstanding with fresh ingredients and everything cooked perfectly. You will find some unique dishes here with some having a New Mexican or Salvadoran twist to them. You have to order at the counter and the food is then brought to you. This place is very authentic funky... More
