Per the recommendation of the hotel manager, we ate supper here. There were 4 people in our party. Only one of us enjoyed our meal. The beef fajita's were tough. Even when we traded plates, the other person thought it too tough to eat. The waitress was of little help when we were ordering. She didn't know one chili pepper... More

Santa Fe is not our favorite town for getting around...short buildings and tall trees. But, once we found the restuarant we were very happy! We were seated quickly-two couples-after we scvoped out the pies. Our waitress, Fernanda, was fantastic! (Thank you!) Our waters were delivered quickly and kept topped off. Very important to motorcyclists who have been on the road... More

Ended up eating here by myself...sat at the counter. After placing my order, I didn't see my server again until after the food came out. Another server noticed I needed a refill, and another server gave me my bill. Food was good, but I thought it should have been priced a dollar or two lower then it was.

The title says it all. The atmosphere is almost retro café which is fine. They could add some more to the menu. The food was good as was the service. But, almost $40 for a chicken fried steak and a club sandwich? Really?

We are true New Mexico chili addicts and we like it hot. Went for breakfast and had the blue corn, extra hot green chili breakfast enchilada. The chili is not as hot as Horsemen's Haven, but the flavor was better. Absolutely delicious! We will definitely go back. It ran around $30 which included the tip....pretty typical in Santa Fe. The... More

Day trip to Taos heightened our appetites. Decided to try Plaza Cafe Southside due to the fact that it was close to our hotel. Fast seating. Decor is very different to the Cafe on the Plaza. Kind of diner with a flair for modern. Booths and tables. Our waitress, sorry I don't have her name was excellent. So was the... More

Decided to take myself to an early lunch and could not have been more disappointed. Ordered cheese enchiladas Xmas and couldn't even finish as it was so bad. Beans were dry, rice was so not fresh I thought at one point I bit down on a small rock and the enchiladas were not even melted all the way thru and... More

We met up with our friends to hear the band that was playing in the adjoining plaza and have dinner. Our reservations were for the corner, outside dining. It was a perfect night and although the band was really too loud to have conversation (if you go when a band is playing you may want to head inside if you... More

Quaint little place on the square that is family run since 1903! Incredible menu with a little bit of everything. We had street tacos and chicken enchiladas and both were served quickly and were very good. Red sauce had some fire power! This is a must got to while in Santa Fe!

Wonderful, out of the way restaurant just off south Cerrillos in Santa Fe. Incredible desserts. Good food, full bar, but families would be comfortable. Great service. Eclectic decor. Breakfast all day. Sister restaurant to the famous Plaza Cafe located on the plaza. Highly recommend.
