Everyone was very helpful, and kind to our dogs. The food was average - neither good nor bad. On the whole, I might not stop there again, but I could not have asked for more helpful servers. It is well located and very nice inside.

Good red chili to go over your fried eggs. We ate here twice during our week long stay in Santa Fe. I didn't give it an "excellent" rating because the service is a bit show; friendly, but slow.

The coffee was great, patio area nice place to sit except they were doing some remodelling so there were workmen walking around and construction supplies piled around. The service was really slow and the food was OK, prices high. Probably wouldn't return.

My wife and I used to eat here often, but the food went a bit downhill. We decided to try it again yesterday. They have such a nice patio in back and we sat there for a half hour before walking out. Even though we spoke with the hostess before sitting down, the wait staff continued to ignore us. They... More

Stopped in here by accident for lunch, from roadway it does not look appealing, but they had an excellent outdoor courtyard which on a fine day was a great place for lunch. The food was excellent and fresh. The staff were very helpful. Overall it was a great spot for an enjoyable lunch.

We love Burro Alley Cafe! We always eat in the courtyard, it has a quaint atmosphere. As for the food, the menu includes wonderful pastries and entrees. The chicken and mushroom crepes are delicious! It is our favorite place to go in Santa Fe.

The place is ok, if your ok with the owner charging more to your credit card. I went to eat my tab was 34.62, I checked my statement and the owner charged my card 346.20. I called him to fix it, he gave me the run around. The guy is a thief and a moron, learn how to run your... More

We stopped here for breakfast after taking the Rail Runner train (highly recommended) to Santa Fe for a day of sightseeing & shopping, from out hotel in Albequerque. As others have mentioned, a "pleasant surprise", food was fresh and tasty, and we'll presented. We had questions about the area and our server took the time to help us and also... More

We stumbled across this cafe and loved the crowded, mismatched courtyard - eclectic best describes it. And the food is excellent. For those who like something a little different.
