One of my favorite places in Sant Fe. Love to sit here and people watch. Often a dog or two who love a good belly rub. In the evenings fun to sit and enjoy the music.

Visit the Plaza, browse the native artist displays, look around at the adobe buildings and make sure you visit El Molero on the corner opposite the Plaza Café before 2 PM for delicious tamales or fagitas for lunch.
