Cute, Hidden Away Cafe

I arrived a few minutes after 7:00 on a Saturday morning and was the first customer. I had the Breakfast Tacos and they are amazing. They had to give me green chile stew because the green chile sauce gas flour in it. I will be back

What a pleasant, delicious experience we had for lunch, all at reasonable prices. The sandwiches we had were fresh and generous and the ice tea was refreshing and tasty. The flan was the best I have ever had - ever ! The hostess (owner) was a lovely woman who told us her husband was the cook and I might add,... More

Just off the Santa Fe Plaza...we were pleasantly surprised by the cozy quaint ambiance, excellent fresh & delicious breakfast...my husband had the Breakfast burrito smothered in Christmas (both green & red) Chili and I opted for the cheese enchiladas...the side posole & pinto beans were awesome! Great hot coffee served in pre-heated mugs & most of all a wonderful very... More

While visiting the plaza in Santa Fe we decided to have lunch before leaving. Looking around the plaza's restaurants , prices were as high as the jewelry prices. We wanted something simple but with some local flavor, Palacio was the perfect place, highly recommend.

Tried the delicious El Monte sandwich, very pleased with it! Place is busy but that's a good sign, right? Service was good and friendly.

Lovely little restaurant a couple of blocks off the main plaza, I was delighted when the waitress made some changes to the club sandwich on the menu to make it more to my liking adding carmelized onions and roasted peppers to my club sandwich. This raised my rating of the food from good to very good. Prices are reasonable. Wait... More

Low prices and friendly service around 8-9$ per item. Good quality SW/Mexican breakfast favorites in a low key cafe setting.

Service was a bit slow and we had to ask for drink refills a few times but the food more than made up for it. Fresh salads and sandwiches were a welcome lighter meal after several Mexican meals. We all had a different panini and salad and each loved our dish!

Looking for a new place to try for breakfast, we saw the reviews for this place on tripadvisor and decided to give it a try...and we were not disappointed. Endless coffee accompanied our meal of huevos rancheros and the veggie omelet. A request for avocado on top was easily accommodated. Both dishes were delicious and upon licking our plates clean...

We had lunch here on day in Santa Fe. I had a beefy hero, and my husband had a Panini. They were both delicious! I had a salad, and it was perfect. My kids shared enchiladas, and they were pretty good too. The only downside is the drinks were canned, so you don't get very much for your money.
