“Best espresso!”
Reviewed April 18, 2013

This tiny place could easily be missed if you aren't looking for it, but it is SO worth searching for! We made a special detour to have coffee here because it had been closed on the Monday when we first visited Santa Fe. Delicious coffee without the big-chain barista attitude. Try the soy chai or just straight espresso. You will be glad you did.

“Such a neat little place & the owner there is a wonderful guy!”
Reviewed February 26, 2013

Soy chai was incredible... perfect for a chilly day. The owner was kind & funny & spent a little time chatting with us to give us the time inside the shop to warm up & even though it's a tiny place, he welcomed us to stay as long as we needed to warm up. He's a real gem & the coffee is excellent!

“Tiny Place With Big Personality”
Reviewed February 18, 2013

Local coffee/espresso served with a smile and a howl on demand. This tiny kiosk serves up a tasty cup made to order. Despite national travel magazine reviews, Holy Spirit Espresso has remained humble and in tact - some things are perfect as they are and this is one of them. Sometimes a seat or two is available out front; barely standing room for two inside - hit and run.

“Best stop for coffee near the plaza!”
Reviewed February 11, 2013 via mobile

I agree with the other positive reviews. The coffee here is great and local. Pass up the Starbucks if you are looking for quality coffee to go. Very reasonable pricing and very friendly baristas.
