The food is amazing and very reasonably priced! The staff is very personable. You HAVE to try the buttermilk pie! It's amazing!

“Surprisingly Mediocre”
Reviewed March 7, 2014

After reading so many complimentary reviews of Placitas Cafe, we decided to try it for dinner. The meal was, at best, very mediocre. To sum it up, our dinner entrees were not tasty or flavorful nor did they have any other redeeming qualities. Bland, sort of like what I remember junior high school lunch in the cafeteria to be like. Maybe the regular cooks were off that night, I don't know, but we won't go back.

“Bad service and mediocre food”
Reviewed February 8, 2014

Unless you are a local, chances are you will be ignored when you enter the dining room. This happened to me on both occasions I went there. Second time and after waiting several minutes, I finally walked out and have never returned. The food is mediocre at best.

“Buttermilk Pie”
Reviewed January 26, 2014

Excellent homemade food, great service and wonderful atmosphere.
The waiter brought us Buttermilk pie to try and OMG was it the best thing I ever had in my life. You can't explain the taste, it tastes like a combination of creme brulee with cake with flan with butter...ohhh so good.
Thank you Placitas Cafe for making my day!

“Friendly, Tasty”
Reviewed November 30, 2013

Everything you want from a neighborhood cafe can be found at Placitas Cafe. The only fault is the lack of coffee drinks (Mocha, latte, etc.). They have serve-yourself air pots for coffee, but in a way, that fits with the homey atmosphere. If you are going down I-25, take a quick detour to Placitas Cafe. You'll be glad you did.
