“Get the cinnamon roll!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2012

They only make them on certain days so you may want to call ahead. Also they only take cash. Great food, plenty of seating indoors and outdoors.

“fantastic self service cafe”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 15, 2012

Santa Fe is such a great town; full of exciting discoveries one might expect to find only in a town 10 times its size. I went to CC for the first time due to our first choice being closed on Mondays. What a lucky twist of fate! CC is, to quote the reigning cliche, "a hidden gem". In this case however, REALLY hidden in the corner of a totally nondescript location; and housing an open, airy, hip, smart, lively, fun and delicious eatery. All homemade--soups salads, sandwiches, desserts; open breakfast, lunch and dinner with beer and wine and outside dining. Go, you won't regret it.

“Great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 5, 2012

CC offers great salads, sandwiches and other cold dishes. I especially love the cold sesame noodles with chicken -- delightful flavors. The place is a little odd looking, as one might suspect from the name, but never mind. Just order at the cashier and great food will be brought to the table you select. They also have several tables outside, at which well-behaved dogs are permitted. We recommend it highly.

“LOCALS FAVORITE and...Best Breakfast Burrito on the Planet!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2012

Quality food, informal atmosphere, self-service ordering, alfresco dining on the terrace, in this restuarant/art gallery. One of the best breakfast choices in Santa Fe...and definitely the best breakfast burrito. The owner, Jason is an alumni of Pasqual's, one of Santa Fe's signature fine-dining restuarants. Inspired by Pasqual's, Jason's Counter Culture offers the same top notch quality at affordable pricing. That's why it's a favorite of locals and jammed packed, especially for breakfast and lunch...but don't pass up the dinner menu and nice wine list though.

“What a treat!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2012

The food at this little place is outstanding, and the staff are courteous and helpful. I will definitely go back when I'm in the Santa Fe area. I had the vietnamese sandwich with the cold sesame noodles - they were perfect in every way! Savory, spicy and little sweetness from the sriracha...I was in heaven.
