“A Good, Basic Coffee Shop”
Reviewed February 4, 2012

Located In the Hotel Fonda on the south side of the Plaza in Taos, is this good basic coffee shop. A variety of coffees are offered, from basic to fancy, served in Starbucks cardboard cups. No where else is there any reference to Starbucks. Some pastry items are offered, none of which are special or prepared onsite.

If shopping and sightseeing on the Plaza, and need a break, Noula's will do.

“Barista Was Wonderful!”
Reviewed December 26, 2011

Even though we were there on Christmas Day.. and every other coffee house in Taos was closed... the barista was still cheerful and pouring tasty coffee.

Small in size, but big on character.. drop in and have a coffee!

“Nice little cafe in La Fonda off the Taos Plaza”
Reviewed November 12, 2011

This is a pleasant little cafe in the hotel, with an entrance on the Plaza, that serves good coffee/tea and pastries. A nice quiet little respite in Taos.

“Free for guests of Hotel LaFonda on the plaza.”
Reviewed October 4, 2011

We found Noula's after my friend spotted a coffee container and asked its owner where to find coffee. It is on the plaza and is a Starbuck's. We would not have known that except that there was name imprinting inside on the paper containers. Odd. Never have seen a non-labeled Starbuck's store before.
We each ordered. The barrista seemed, uh, flightly. I wanted to amend my order and she was unable to incorporate the information. The coffees were fine however.
A second visit we had a male barista. He did a good job.
This is a small and rather plain shop.
I respect the work baristas do. The female barista just didn't make the cut in my opinion.
