We needed a place to stop for lunch in Santa Fe and found this little gem. The enchiladas were incredible with a tangy tomatillo sauce. My companion had the gluten free pumpkin waffles and they too were amazing.

Stop by for great soups, sandwiches, salads, etc. you order at the counter and they serve you. We had vegan roasted pepper and potato soup with chilies. SO TASTY. Check out the menu and come in for a casual local meal.

This place is a must whenever we visit Santa Fe. Everything is fresh and delish! The duck hash and huevos rancheros are my favorite in the city

We cannot figure out why this place gets such high reviews. We went for the papusas, and found them extremely greasy (which smelled none-too-fresh) and full of "steak" gristle. Actually inedible. It's cheap so maybe that is the pull.

I am not sure where all these other people ate breakfast but this place was not for me. Breakfast burrito with chorizo had nothing recognizable as chorizo in it and no chili. Duck hash was a better choice but not worth a second try. Cappuccino...More
