We had lunch at this iconic restaurant. Don't expect anything fancy, but the space is quite pleasant and fun. It is a mix of locals and tourists. There is a small bar that is clearly used by locals. Service is efficient, but not overly helpful or friendly, but it got the job done. The food was good and flavorful. The... More

My husband and I ate lunch at Tia Sophia one day when we were exploring the historic section of Santa Fe. The little restaurant is very casual and authentic, with fresh delicious food and friendly service. If you’re exploring the Plaza and get hungry, it’s the place to go!

A hole in the wall, well known place we could not miss. I ordered the enchiladas and a side of Guacamole. Portions were generous, Guacamole didn't seem overly fresh, but chips were really good. Maybe homemade. The burrito was good and the soft tacos were good. Excellent service and friendly atmosphere.

Based on the wonderful reviews, we couldn't wait to try Tia Sophia's so we went for lunch. The decor was "ugly" charming (overdone TexMex) that one expects in this type of cafe. Under this kitschy decor we found sticky tables which made us question the overall cleanliness. The server was helpful and friendly despite being very busy. Looking ahead at... More

This is the place that is always crowded with locals and visitors for breakfast. Their huevos Rancheros are the best in town and the best I have had anywhere. Their green chile is fabulous!!!

We had a late breakfast here. The New Mexican food was fine (but it certainly is not La Chosa or the Shed). The restaurant was loud and the wait staff inattentive. We much preferred Clafoutis

Our first stop when coming to Santa Fe is Tia Sophia's! Their green chili stew and sopapillas are the best, plus the place is a lot of fun. The service is quick, with a great fun-loving waitress. The locals are teased and welcomed. The tourists are taught what "Christmas" means....It's old-time Santa Fe-not snooty or high-priced. The décor is fun,... More

A local recommended this place and though it is in the center of town and could be touristy, it seemed to be full of locals who knew each other. If you can't pick between the red or the green chili sauce -- ask for Christmas!

Come here for breakfast / brunch / lunch! If you come for a late breakfast - hang out until the sopapillas are ready, they are more than worth the wait. Popular with tourists and locals alike - it is not hard to understand why. Very close to the plaza and famous for its breakfast burritos (my choice is with green... More

When we walked up to TIA's there was a line waiting out the door. Only had a 10 minute wait. Staff was pleasant, decor was southwestern and the food was excellent. I asked for a special order omelet and it was really good. Would definitely return.
