One of the best spots to dine in Taos area. A classic. Upscale Italian and creative cooks you can watch if you sit at the bar. Great food, nice ambiance. Patio in back. Fireplace.

On Tues-Thurs. they have a earlybird special from 4-6:00 pm every night. Soup, salad and pasta entree for $12.00 Also $12.00 bottle of wine. Service was excellent, as well as the flavor of the food. Cauliflower and brie soup to die for!

My husband and I were visiting Taos and saw the sign for Italian at this small roadside location. We were very impressed with the selection of food. We had the rosemary chicken and carbonara; which were both delicious.

For an elegant, delicious meal, the Trading Post Cafe is consistently a good, if not great choice. A find for foodies. Not so much innovative, but the classics are always well done here. Being a local, I love to sit at the "bar" and watch the cooks in action. They will always accomodate special requests or preferences or diets, which is good since the cuisine is definitely "old world", which is to say, not "lite", fresh yes, but not especially healthy.
I had Ceasar salad with seared Ahi tuna--a generous portion but heavy on the salad dressing. The cooks said to request light on the dressing next time, as I said, they want to do it your way.

I often visit the Trading post--a great place to take friends or for an informal business meeting. The staff is always friendly and helpful. My fav place is outside in the patio. If I'm feeling out of sorts, a large bowl of their chicken soup will always cheer me up!
