    Don't let the name fool you. I almost opted for another restaurant, because I couldn't imagine a place with New Mexican cuisine could be called a "cafe." And, it is right on the plaza, so I expected it to be a touristy place. I assure you, walk right...

    As the weather moves from summer to fall and into winter nothing tastes better than a good tortilla soup. It's a nice diner with a good menu

  • Joseph C

    Had a great BLT, good beverages, good service. Staff agreeably split our sandwich to match small appetites, and the retro environment of a 1940'sudden dinner was fun, yet immaculately clean. What a great spot in Santa Fe! Try it.
