My family of 16 stayed for 5 days at the Shady Brook Inn and enjoyed the convenience of the cafe with it's coffee bar, soft drinks, breakfast burritos and casual dining options that are tasty buy friendly to the budget. We also needed a large space to have a special Christmas dinner with such a large number and they were kind enough to accommodate our special event. Highly recommend!

My family of six stayed at the Shady Brook Inn for five days and visited the restaurant first because of the convenience, but returned often for the food. All meals, breakfast, lunch and even an early dinner were great.

Wonderful casual cuisine that exceeded the expectations of even my pickiest of daughters. Fantastic accommodations and restaurant. I strongly recommend both the Shady Brook Inn and Cafe to anyone!

Restaurant is open Wednesday through Sunday 7 - 4 p.m.

You are greeted with warm hospitality by Ramona. She is beautiful person and is so helpful with meal ideas. Great-tasting coffee, which they happily keep you with plenty of.

I love the pancakes. My wife prefers southwest meals, while I like basic food. She had a tamale breakfast this last week, and loved it. The week before she got a veggie omelette that was fabulous with just the right amount of veggies, cheese, and fresh spinach. Lots of choices that include good old-fashioned American food, or food with a Spanish flair. Food comes out with a gourmet look. Delightful place. People who visit the restaurant are so happy to have Ramona's open, you will find easy and fun conversations between the guests. Always a great experience.

We are lucky to have Ramona's Shady Brook Cafe in our canyon and make a point of eating there regularly. The food is excellent, the location lovely, and the cafe is family run. This is lots of history surrounding Shady Brook and it adds atmosphere to the flavorful food.

So excited that Shady Brook has a new cafe. Ramona and her husband run this cafe, and it couldn't be better!!! Have had breakfast there twice now, and I love the Veggie Omelet. My husband loves the pancakes. Great atmosphere, great service, great food. Every time we go from Angel Fire to Taos, we stop to eat there. Highly recommend the place and can't wait to have lunch there, as their salsa and guacamole is home-made. Hours are Wednesday - Sunday, 7 a.m. to 4 p.m.
