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.

All around worst experience and meal in my life. Our server even told us "if the owner put as much attention into the restaurant as he does his women.. It would probable be ok". OMG!

Just as we started walking the area, a huge hail storm hit and we ducked in here for cover. We ended up eating lunch and are very glad we did. Service was excellent, food very good, but the best was the accordion player playing schmaltzy tunes from yesteryear (ok, I used to play the accordion many, many years ago). Had... More

It's just Terrible! The place should just close already. Bad food. Bad service and most of it is blamed on the management.

We stopped in here to grab a quick pastry and coffee because it was the first cafe we encountered. So glad we did! We ended up eating breakfast there every morning of our trip. The friendly staff seemed to really care about pleasing us and doing their work well. The food was delicious, and the coffee tasted better than that... More

This was our first trip to the newly-opened Burro Alley Cafe and what a disappointment! We were a party of six, hoping to have some brunch and watch the World Cup Final. Our party was seated at 11:40 with menus, and 20 minutes later the waitress had still not returned to take an order or even bothered to acknowledge us.... More
