Had a tasty pleasant experience on a chilly January mid-week visit. The soup and sandwich was a treat.

This is a small cafe with outdoor patio on Canyon Road. Really delicious, healthy and creative food at good prices. Take a break from gallery hopping and recharge at this place. The chef, Sancho Soerio is creating some fabulous dishes.

Small little cafe with tasty, excellent comfort food. This is one of my favorite places to eat lunch in Santa Fe if you catch it open at the right hour.

Stopped in for a glass of wine as we walked down Canyon Road. Received my wine in a dirty glass with what appeared to be dust from the bottom of the glass floating in it. I returned my wine and while waiting for another took a look around and the tiny place is just plain dirty. Dirty floors dust on... More

Sorry, cork sometimes get in wine glasses. Our place is small and sometime the leaves from autumn weather do come into our cafe. Our cafe is fully inspected and it is just mean to call our small mom and pop, " dirty". I do hope you feel better about yourself. I grew up being taught that if you have nothing... More

Because there's no parking! I went around the block 2 times before I just gave up looking for a space along any side street closer than 200 feet in any direction, and ended up parking in the "green" zone, taking my chances on a ticket. They relocated to this location from another "no-parking" location earlier in the year....I guess they... More

Really sorry that parking was a problem for you. I believe that there is only one public parking facility on Canyon and that most businesses rely on street parking. I do hope the wait staff presented you with our extensive Specials menu. Tourists love that they can eat very well but not pay such high prices...people also ave been receptive... More

We were exhausted from walking so long in the heat on Canyon Road, needed to rest and drink. Was aiming for another cafe further down the road on the map but we could not walk anymore so it was a pleasant surprise to find this cafe. We only ordered drinks indoor (AC!) but the service was friendly.

We watched the chef prepare each dish with skill and the freshest of ingredients. A rustic, quaint atmosphere with personal attention. We were glad we stopped.

This is a charming little café, just right for a quick stop while meandering on Canyon Road through art galleries and other arty spots. It is quite small and serves both coffee and snacks, sandwiches, salads and soft drinks. One can eat at the tiny patio outside or the small café inside. They also serve a few specials such as...

We had lunch here while visiting the galleries on Canyon Drive. The food was good, and the people were pleasant. We would go back. It is probably a better choice for adults than for people with young children.

You wouldn't expect a tiny restaurant among the galleries on Canyon Road. I had the wild Alaskan salmon burger which was topped off with wasabi aioli and an avocado. The iaoli had a nice kick and the avocado cooled it down. The bun was toasted perfectly. The sandwich was eleven dollars.They were out of the chicken Marsala so I would... More
