Late opening. Muffins and scones were hard. The scone was so hard I had to flake off a bite. Ended up throwing away. Did not have time to return. Expensive coffee since it was free in the hotel lobby.

We had a delicious meal and very nice wait staff. Our fajitas and fish were very good. The atmosphere is casual, and dessert was delicious too!

The first night my husband's chicken fried steak was great. The 2nd night the Menu did not correspond with what we got. My pork chops were dry and were supposed to be one large thick pork chop. I ordered a Cosmopolitan cocktail and what I got was not a cosmo. The cafe manager, Suzanne, took it back and went to the head bartender who made a lovely cosmo. The service was excellent, wait staff good and Suzanne was excellent. The 3rd night we opted for the buffet fajitas instead of the menu. The shrimp fajitas were good.

Food was just okay but quite expensive. Area behind restaurant was nice though. They ran out of some supplies and menu was limited. We were also there over Thanksgiving though.

The Candelilla Cafe was highly recommended by our AirBNB host but I wasn't expecting much. What a surprise to walk in and find a desert oasis. The service was ok but the food was excellent. The views were just spectacular.
