Besides arriving and seeing beautiful peacocks everywhere, the inside was just as cool. Walked inside, and had to take in the antique cook stoves, wood burning stoves, and all of the little touches that make you feel right at home. The coffee was wonderful, breakfast...More

My brother insists on coming to this cafe for breakfast. The location is probably a local favorite, BUT not worth the drive to eat in cramped and an uncomfortable interior. The food is ok, typical of Santa Fe quizine, the cinnamon rolls are outstanding. The...More

As somewhat regular customer (several times a year), I was heartened to hear of the new ownership over a year ago. The place seemed to be improving on all fronts after a long slide in service and quality over the years. My last two visits...More

This place is wonderful. The staff is very friendly, the food is excellent, and the rustic NM charm is everywhere. Make a reservation as they will reserve a better table for you.
