This is the South side venue of a longtime local Plaza favorite but it also has a full bar. The food and atmosphere are basically the samebut better variety but its not as crowded. Since its right off the 14 plex movie theater its great for for noshing or a full meal around a movie.

Located on the Southside, away from the action in Santa Fe, which might be a good thing or a bad thing, depending on what you want. A new place but has nice murals, very Day of the Dead with New Mexico scenes, pretty cool. Had the Greek chicken souvlaki salad- super! Fresh, good ingredients, filling. Saw some pie that looks...

Ah, the title of the review says it all. A few friends had recommended this place several times to me. Their recommendations led me to have high expectations. What I really got was a green chile cheeseburger, that was kind of dry, barely had green chile, and a very large serving of fries. For desert we ordered the Cuatro Leches... More

The southside location of a Santa Fe institution is a great breakfast choice, especially if getting a bite before heading back to the Albuquerque airport. Located off Cerrillos near I-25, Plaza has a very attractive classic "diner" atmosphere, excellent breakfast selections from fresh fruit and yogurt to bakery goods to local and regional favorites, like migas and huevos rancheros.

I've been here probably a dozen times in the last few years and I keep coming back. There are so many options in Santa Fe that being a repeat customer can be a huge compliment. I've come here for breakfast, lunch and dinner, with friends or family, and never had a bad experience. In general, Plaza Cafe Southside is an... More

Far on the South end of Santa Fe's Cerillos Rd. tucked away in a shopping mall, is a hidden jewel. The Plaza Cafe South is a great place to grab a quick bite for lunch with friends. We recently met some friends to celebrate a birthday luncheon. As usual, the food was excellent and served in very large portions. Service... More

Great food- just like the original location. Good service with really nice servers. Very convenient if you're on the south side of town.
