After 30 years, still the best breakfast in town

Every breakfast item is terrific. I am especially partial to the huevos rancheros green. The wife goes for the bacon breakfast burrito, also green. I've had great service and not so great but the food is always stunning.

Huevos Rancheros are a must for me here. You can tell it's a local favorite. Might want to get there early!

Was recommended this place which is off the plaza, by our taxi driver for a good breakfast. My colleague and I went down the first day of our business trip for breakfast. We were seated quickly and it was full of locals which is a good sign. We were abruptly seated with no smile and a toss of the menus... More

My husband and I met up with my Dad while in Santa Fe, NM to have some breakfast. My Dad suggested TIA Sophia's. It was packed and the wait was only about 10-15 minutes. The food was delicious.

We were here for lunch and were seated promptly.The food and service were excellent. I had tacos and they weren't spicy ( I don't do spicy so they really were mild). Hubby had burrito and said it was excellent. The prices were extremely reasonable;be sure to eat here before leaving Santa Fe. It is open only for breakfast and lunch.

After staying the night in Santa Fe on a five-day, four-night northern NM family vacation, the family and I were needing some breakfast before walking La Plaza. Before leaving TX, I had researched some of the more highly-recommended chile restaurants along planned travels. Tia Sophia had popped up and I had seen a very good review for the blue corn... More

Food is hotter than other restaurants, so if you don't have the gaviscon, go get some. The food is worth the pain. Excellent tamales and tacos. Great breakfast. Wait staff kind of rush you out by quickly putting your ticket on table and saying "thanks for coming." But a few of the wait staff are quite friendly.

Great local restaurant - staff is excellent and always have a smile and can answer any questions about the menu. Always a little wait but well worth it.
