So good we went there twice. The place has excellent food and service. A wide variety of choices – I really enjoyed the enchiladas, while the Frito Pie was also a hit. The sopapillas make for an excellent desert. Would visit the next time in Santa Fe.

The food and service is great. Get early since the line starts forming out the door. They do give you a pager so you can sit outside while you wait. It's worth the wait. Diner atmosphere. Great food.

Looking for a great place to try the food that the locals eat? This is it. A small cafe outside the center of Santa Fe that provides attentive, friendly service and great portions of exemplary “ordinary” food: red and green chilies, egg dishes, sandwiches, and good deserts. Since the 1940s, this has been a place to get satisfying breakfasts, filling... More

We eat breakfast here at least once whenever we stay in Santa Fe. The food is as advertised, tasty, served hot, and well-portioned, even huge in the case of breakfast burritos. Prices are very reasonable, and service is speedy and cheerful. What's not to like? The only issue we run into is the line out the door on weekend mornings.

Stopped here for breakfast and it did not disappoint. We ordered an omelet and 2 egg breakfast. Service was fast, the food was super good and so was the coffee. The place is a little cramped so maybe not for huge parties and the place seems to be quite popular too. We luckily came at the right time and were... More

Fantastic breakfast with great service and a wonderful diner feel. It's been around since 1948 and still has people standing in line to get in! The Chili Relleno stuffed omelette was fantastic with the spicy green chili sauce!!

This used to be a terrific place for authentic Southwestern food at an affordable price. The menu was extensive and the place was popular with locals. This time around, the menu seemed to be more limited and the options were not what I was expecting. Service was okay. Now I guess I'll have to find another place for good affordable... More

It's a shame you weren't too impressed last visit. Although our standards have always been the same, I'm sorry if you were given any reason to doubt that. You should always expect quick and friendly service, too, and it's disappointing we dropped the ball. I hope you'll come back again sometime for another try. As you know from your first... More

Can't decide on breakfast or dinner, have the best of both worlds. We did. Their pancakes and chili were our favorite. The service made this a great place. After reading all the reviews we had to stop here. The staff was so friendly, fast, and refilled our water, coffee before we even asked.

Very good food and a lot of it. We ate on the way out town and where very satisfied with the food and service. The breakfast burrito is huge and my son said the sauce was spicy. Good breakfast place for a casual diner. Enjoy!
