I have dined here often, but always forgot to review. Today when we went to brunch I decided to go with reviewing in mind. My friend enjoyed his omelet and potatoes, and said they were good. He was quite taken with the homemade biscuits that were served under gravy. He wasn't as excited by the gravy, he said it was... More

Met a friend for lunch here and decided the french toast (can be a favorite) sounded interesting and I was right. Large portion of the best tasting french toast I have ever eaten with crunchy topping on thick homemade bread. Looking forward to trying it again and trying other unique items.

Pretty average. Kinda diner like... Comfortable food, service and environment. Had a smothered burrito which came out warm not hot. I will go back and recommend this to anyone!

One of the best wait staff we've encountered, there when you wanted and not otherwise. Quickly prepared food of mediocre quality, many families/kids (lots of them on their cell phones(!), hence most conversation between adults), no Pepsi (!), but a line outside. If you eat here, expect higher prices.

It all started at the hostess station. For some reason the couple behind us were seated before us. We got to our table and and I sat down on a something on my seat. Maybe a tomato?? Service was slow to start, but food and drinks came quickly after. We had some strange floaties in our iced tea, sent it... More

Food is average but priced relatively high. Plan to send about $12+ for a meal. There are much better option available in Santa Fe based on price and value.

The Southside Plaza is really south, off Zafrano and lots of twists and turns behind some big box stores to find it. Lovely little outside plaza when weather permits and the inside feels like being in a jukebox - colors, poster, bar and lots of glass items. This is a place that you feel at home even if home never... More
