Dinner at The Plaza Cafe

Several people recommended this restaurant to us. It was very good. The food was great. I loved the prickly pear lemonade as did my son. The service was also good. We were able to walk from our hotel, which was a plus.

We were treated to this "locals" spot by recommendation of the manager of the hotel we were staying at. Oh my, I had a Blue Corn Pinon Pancake with maple cinnamon syrup which was delightfully different! Our waitress was fantastic as well; she explained so much to us that this cafe was for the locals; how she felt like family... More

We stopped in for breakfast and had our dog with us so we took it to go and sat right outside on the square. The Yogurt parfait was amazing! It has fresh and dried fruit, homemade granola and yogurt! We also had some egg scramble that wasn't our favorite due to the red chili sauce...it just wasn't for me but... More

I really don't understand why they don't make in house chicken fried steak????? It not only tastes MUCH better but it makes sense with food costs..... Such a shame as the gravy was also not made in-house but from a gravy mix....

We went out if our way to eat here & wasn't disappointed... Steak & eggs were perfect! Wife had a burger which was also perfect. This place knows how to cook delicious food and I hope they never change!

We both had the chile relenno omelet. Very tasty. Generous portion with native beans and homemade hash browns. The green chili and red chili are as hot as advertised on the menu. Hard to decide what to eat because their menu is packed with delicious choices. Not to be missed. Great waiter!

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. I was astounded actually. I go quite often for various meals because I am confident the ingredients are chosen not only taste but health... More

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.
