Love the food. I was a little disappointed when I asked for extra orange essence butter for my blue corn and pinon pancake and I was given MARGARINE. That should not even exist in the restaurant.

We were headed to Seattle and made a detour through Santa Fe just so we could have a piece of the Plaza Cafe's carmel apple pie. We couldn't find a parking spot on the plaza but found this second location.....same great pie and easier parking.

I'm not your 50s cafe kinda gal, but this ain't the cafe I remember from back then. There are fresh vegetables, seasonings, and inventive combinations. The owners have mango lassis, not just milkshakes. Plenty of yummy salads and indulgent desserts. Be good; be bad. There's room for all, making it ideal for a big group. No one in our group... More

The food is the most consistant we have found in Santa Fe, NM. The menu is really good and diverse. The quality of food they serve is wonderful. We notice other customers who were there the last time the had breakfast there. That's a good sign!!!

We eat at the Plaza Cafe almost weekly and I have never had a bad meal there. The food is delicious. We have tried the Native American dishes, Greek inspired dishes and the good old NM food. My personal favorite is the Breakfast Burrito which can be ordered anytime they're open, as well as any other breakfast dish along with... More

In the past I ate there several times a week. Over a short period of time almost all the available healthy vegan options were eliminated from the menu which left us feeling alienated as such regular and enthusiastic customers. I really miss it there and hope they bring back the original veggie burger, freshly made, the 3 grain cereal, and... More
