“Tasty Breakfast and Fun Waiter!”
Reviewed May 27, 2013

Stopped in to Tia's for a nice breakfast before heading out to explore the gazillions of galleries in Santa Fe. Food was pretty good, but the flour tortilla wasn't cooked properly. It tasted like uncooked flour. Appears to have been heated up in a microwave to soften, but needed to be heated up in a very hot cast iron skillet to bring out the real flavor. The eggs and back inside the tortilla was very good and cooked to our specifications. The sour cream and guacamole "souffle" was really only small containers of each....no souffle as we know souffle! Coffee was hot and fresh. Our waiter, Carl, was a hoot! He has a suitcase full of "blond" jokes, so be ready! Highly recommend Tia's!

“Get there early”
Reviewed May 14, 2013

Santa Fe Classic, on San Francisco, across from the Lensic. Good New Mexican food and excellent service in a setting that seems to have changed little over the last decades. The only problem is its popularity - with locals and visitors alike. Getting a table may be a challenge. During busy times, you will see people wandering nearby, window shopping, clutching small slips of paper with their Tia Sophia number on them. Worth the wait. Try the Green Chili stew and order extra sopapilla, as they are among the best in town.

“A time tested New Mexican restaurant right on the plaza!”
Reviewed May 9, 2013

If you want good, solid New Mexican food in a nice environment with good service then this is the place. It is affordable and offers a convenient place to eat while the strolling the town. This is not a high end place like Geronimo or the Compound but those are going to cost you a lot more.

“This is real Santa Fe”
Reviewed May 8, 2013

Tia Sophia's has been been serving up great food for 38 years. We were having breakfast on 5/5/2013 and they had a big cake cerebrating their 38th anniversary. We had lunch one day and breakfast on another and both were real "Southwest" treats. Lots of charm and atmosphere, but nothing fancy, just outstanding down-to-earth Santa Fe style food. I agree with the others reviewers that say Tia Sophia's is cosy and friendly, the food was so good and the staff so friendly we had to return.
