We came for lunch (and had hoped to come back for dinner but they closed at 6pm!). There are lots of great options on the menu. A stunning lamb shank, fresh hummus, avocado sandwich greek style. Everything was delicious and very richly portioned.

My wife and I had lunch here with a friend. Service was very slow despite not being busy at all. Food was okay but nothing special. Maybe just an off day? There are so many other dining options in Santa Fe we'd probably not go...back here again.More

What a great place!! So lovely....warm and full of color and vibrance. We had a fabulous brunch - the Greek avocado toast is the best av toast I've ever had! There was also free music playing on the lovely patio. Michael And Rita, the couple...who own the cafe, are constantly going around to chat with the customers and make sure everything is okay. Before my mom and I left, Michael actually sang us an opera aria! (He used to be an opera singer). Amazing, very rare personal service and attention to detail, fabulous vibe and great food - all on the wonderful Canyon Road. GO!More

As the only place to eat or drink on the western half of Canyon Road, their patio was a welcome site. We just wanted a drink and a snack, and the view from the shaded patio was lovely. The drinks were fine, and we ordered...the saganaki, one of our favorite Greek dishes - traditionally, it's a block of cheese served sizzling and then doused in ouzo and set aflame, with fresh lemon juice. Caffe Greco's highly disappointing version was a small, lukewarm slab of half-melted cheese slapped on a plate, with some parsley sprinkled on top. A tiny salad and pita wedges came alongside. Would not order this again, and made us a little suspect of the rest of the menu. But it's a nice place to stop and have a drink with a good view.More

Yummy food but we loved the refreshing drinks and live music in a breezy, calming outdoor setting. Just the thing for this dry desert.

We stopped in for a quick bite on a rainy afternoon and really enjoyed the experience. My daughter and I shared the Spanikopita and Saganaki which made an ample meal for both of us. My husband enjoyed an omelette. The waitress was friendly and did...an excellent job. I like that it is a family business. As an added plus for art lovers, there is an Art*O*Mat installed in the restaurant. It’s a cigarette machine converted into an art vending machine. They are part of a program that places them in various places throughout the country.More

Lamb shank is absolutely amazing, try it! They've had the same chef for 12 years and it shows. Teresa, the server, is excellent. Be patient and enjoy the scenery. The interior of the restaurantl is colorful and unique. We ate outside in the patio area....Stop by next door at the adjacent shop and see Rita, a lovely person. We bought a framed print. Don't miss out on this when in Santa Fe. Good food, good people.More

After wandering around Canyon road and seeing a number of galleries, we stopped in to this cafe to warm up and have tea. It smelled so good that we decided to eat lunch. The waitress kindly let us taste the green Chile stew ( I...was worried it might be too spicy for me). It was not. So my husband and I shared the stew and the avocado toast (which has a Greek twist). They both were delicious. The cafe has lots of little rooms and is decorated nicely. Service was good. There was even music. And the owner, a former opera singer sang a short song to celebrate some newlyweds A lovely experience.More

We got seated and immediately ignored. I had to wave down a waitress for menus. Ignored again. There was an elderly gentlemen walking around talking to and flirting with 20 something women at every nearby table so I asked if he worked there. He said...he was the owner. Good say I we are ready to order so can I please get a waitress. He gave me a look like I had offended him and told me they were short today. Waitress finally arrives and 10 minutes later so does the food which was average. I get ignored again when I want to pay and leave. Wow. The location and setting are beautiful. The rest blows.More

The good was the Green Chili burger. It was very tasty and the green chili sauce was really good. That is all I can say good about the experience. We were told the wait for food would be 25 minutes as they were short handed....The food arrived almost an hour after we ordered. The hummus was the worst we had ever eaten. It was oily and lacked any favor. The Greek Salad should have been called lettuce, cucumber and feta. There was no dressing or olives on it. My suggestion would be to find somewhere else to eat.More

Very pretty spot in a lovely house! Brightly painted rooms with live music. They just reopened after being shut down for three months so I’m trying to give them a break. Very limited menu - only soups, salads and some sandwiches. We all ordered the...chicken and rice soup and we all agreed that it was very salty and tasted just like Campbell’s Soup. Nice people and speedy service.More

Came to Sante Fe for the week to write and this place was recommended to me as a local cafe with food by my airbnb host. It looked just like the pictures but when I walked in it seemed dead, too warm, and no one...else was there except for the wait staff who were casually sitting around. When I got seated and ordered, the owner of the established came over to my table and just stood in front of me looking at me for an uncomfortable amount of time before saying hello. I figured he’d just come by to make sure I was happy with the service but then he called me handsome. Then repeatedly told me he liked me a lot. Then asked me if I was sitting with anyone else, and when I told him no he told me that’s good and then asked me if I was into women or men. When I told him that was personal and that he was making me feel uncomfortable he stepped closer to me and told me he liked me again and then reached out and touched my shoulder, at which point I had to scream for him to get his hand off me. It should be noted that I’m a black person in a majority white town but this place is unsafe for anybody. DO NOT GO HERE. The owner is disgusting, tone deaf, and a sexual harasser. I immediately had to leave without eating.More
