We were trying to figure out where to eat lunch when an older women seated in the square asked us what we were looking for. She suggested this restaurant instead of the place we were considering, saving this place is “really good and considerably less expensive than the other.” She suggested the Green Chile. My husband had the Palacio Club... More

We sought this cafe out due to the good reviews on this site. We weren't disappointed. The service was very friendly and seemed genuinely so. It took a bit after we order to be served, but when the food came we realized why. The food was wonderful, both to eat and look at. The veterinarian omelet was right off the... More

Every time we come to Santa Fe this is a must stop for us!! The food here is amazing and fresh and you have to order the Breakfast Burrito with your Red/Green Chili. The owners are super friendly. Definitely have this on your must-visit list.

Went for a late lunch. I had cheese enchiladas w/red and green sauce. The dish was awesome. The owner/chef came out to greet, super nice. Wonderful quick service and efficient nice server. Super clean too.

Oh my gosh... I was very skeptical about the reviews written about this place. Santa Fe is known for great cuisine and this place is right down town but I had never heard about it outside of the Trip Advisor review. We ordered the Chicken Enchiladas and a Rueben. Absolutely everything on the Enchilada plate was tasty. Great red and... More

There was excellent food and such nice waiters! Make sure you order the chicken enchiladas. We stopped in for a quick lunch on a Monday and left very full.

I had the T.K.Y. Panini with the grilled onions and it was amazing! My husband's burger was perfect and cooked just how he likes it. Friendly staff and menu priced very reasonable.

Saw good reviews on trip advisor,  so went to check it out for lunch. My vegan girlfriend saw some menu items that she could order. Part of historic district, and easy to find. My girlfriend said "meh" about her salad, but my sandwich was pretty good, and fries were extra crispy.
