My breakfast was OK. Staff was pleasant. However, I witnessed one of those things that make me want to never visit another restaurant. I found it a bit pricey for a diner. There was an unfamiliar item on the table so I poured a bit onto my plate and discovered it was cinnamon...and salt. I thought this was an error... More

I have eaten breakfast here 3 - 4 times a month. The food is very good, especially the breakfast burritos. The menu is simple but you will find something you like. But you have to go for the retro 1960s Santa Fe experience. Everything about this place is retro New Mexico, and it's authentic; nothing like the invented retro diner... More

Tia Sophias is a Santa Fe staple. The food there is just okay though. The breakfast we had was nothing spectacular as we have had many other New Mexican breakfasts in town. The service was okay. Our waitress didn't seem to want to be working.

We ran in for lunch on a whim. 6 of us had to wait 10 min, when we decided to split up for quicker service. 4 of us took the counter and 2 behind us at a booth. Everyone of us enjoyed our meal. Its a simple menu. The Green Chile Stew was worthy of a return, we did however... More

Loved, loved, loved the green chile chicken stew I had for lunch. My sister, a foodie by profession, recommended Tia Sophia's and I knew she would not steer me wrong. It's been around forever and looks like it. Still very clean; very good, friendly service; and very reasonable prices.

If you love breakfast, you should go here. They've got the standard American cuisine (French toast, pancakes, etc), but the Spanish items were unbelievable. I'd definitely make this a frequent stop on my next trips to Santa Fe!

Breakfast burritos beyond belief! Super delicious - go with the green chili and cheese option. More than a normal person can eat!

Everyone recommends this place, but I don't know why. Maybe for breakfast, or if you just want regular Mexican food... We went for lunch and had tacos and enchiladas. The tacos were dry and bland and I can make them better myself. My friends thought their enchiladas were pretty good, and liked the (spicy) chili. The restaurant itself is pretty... More

We enjoyed a tasty breakfast burrito in spite of a somewhat curt waitress (the front end staff was however very friendly). Very well organized, they give out numbers in case you need to wait, which we did - - they get a good crowd for breakfast. Note that the sopaipillas are not available for breakfast, but only at lunch starting... More

Ate here several years ago and was blown away with the green chiles. Had a chance to try them again so we stopped by for lunch and had the chile rellenos with green chiles and enchiladas. Awesome!! The service was very good even though they were busy. We have had the green chile stew before and it was super!
