Wondrful Breakfast

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!!!

Stopped in here while passing through Santa Fe. Great service and good food. The burgers are fix to your liking and perfect. Desserts are fresh made on premise, try the green chili apple pie.

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

Great avocado/quinoa tacos with rice and beans..A cute 50's atmosphere. friendly waitstaff. Lunches about$13 are pricey when you have children with you.

The food is always good, mostly consistent and has the New Mexican flair. The carne asada tacos are my fav, but I do like the huevos divorciados at breakfast. Flavorful sauces include red and green chile, tomatillo, and chipoltle. Service is good for SF. Am a regular. Would go more often, but we always seem to spend at least $15... More

Plaza Cafe Southside is our "go-to" restaurant. When we have company, we always include a meal or two. The food is consistently delicious & often the Fri/Sat specials are as good if not better than some of the top-of-the-line restaurants in a city with many great places to eat. The service is exemplary. Love Plaza Cafe SS!

Used to eat here a lot more. Great green chili, only down side is they have raised their prices so no $5 lunch anymore. And I think their portions have also gotten smaller. But if all you care about is taste. Really yummy food and worth the occasional splurge.

I have been a regular at the Plaza Cafe Southside since before it opened at the Zafarano location not only because I love their food, but equally because their staff is the best in Santa Fe. The wait staff are always friendly and smiling even when it is crazy busy and they manage to create a very enjoyable experience. The... More
