“Pleasant spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2013

I loved this little hidden spot. Add plus, gluten free bread for toast! Very sweet decor, small. We enjoyed our breakfast. We saw people walk up to door and walk away. Not sure why, it was very good food, very good coffee and excellent service. Great price.

“Pleasant, quiet, laid-back”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013

A nice quiet spot a block or two from the town plaza. Simple menu with southwestern accents. I enjoyed a turkey panini and a cup of minestrone. Service was just a bit slow but I was in no rush.

“welcome respite during day of shopping”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013

Tasty lunch, excellent speedy service, spotlessly clean (including bathrooms). We wanted to have a quick 30 minute lunch while we waited to have some pottery wrapped. Based on other reviews and location, we decided to give this a try. We were glad we did. We sat at a window at the front of the café and enjoyed people watching while we ate. Excellent sandwiches, soup and salad. You can order from the counter or the server will come to your table. We decided to order at the counter and pick up our food - easy and fast.

“Excellent NM food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

We went twice to this simple New Mexico café in Santa Fe. We enjoyed the Chef's salad, the Green Chile Soup/Stew and beef sandwich.

The quality was excellent and on both occasions the chef/owner came to talk to us.

It was inexpensive
