“A very good breakfast with friendly staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2014

Chris' Café is a very simple and small restaurant with good food and friendly service. Its located right across the street from the Hampton Inn. We stopped in for breakfast and glad we did. We love little restaurants like this one, because it is local owned and operated. They work hard to provide you with good food and make you feel appreciated for coming in. We like supporting the locals. Thanks for a good breakfast.

“Green Eggs and Ham!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2014

This place has your traditional green chili's and ham and eggs that are so great for a Santa Fe breakfast. Glad to find a really good place with happy server and Chris himself coming out of the kitchen to talk to you. Will return to try more great food next trip.

“A small hole in the wall with great food and great service - a must”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2014

We had breakfast at this very small restaurant, Service is great and very friendly, unique style of the young staff. Strongly recommend the home made green salsa. Portions are huge and very well prepared. Customers all seem to be locals.

“Best Green Chicken Enchiladas Ever Ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2014

We just finished dining at Chris's and it was some of the best New Mexican cuisine I have had in Santa Fe in the 25 years I have been coming here. The waitress was someone I would like to hire to be the face of my business, friendly, efficient, and on top of every question or request of each diner. I intend to make it back again before I leave. We had the chicken enchiladas and pork adovado enchiladas with Christmas chilies....yummy!!

“Wonderful enchiladas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2014

I've eaten at Chris' 4 or 5 times because of the green chili chicken enchiladas, which are superb. The cafe is a neighborhood diner, open for breakfast and lunch. Elegant it is not, but the service is attentive and friendly, and the owner has never failed to come to our table and talk with us. I look forward to Santa Fe just to eat Chris's enchiladas.
