Stopped here on our way from Santa Fe to Taos after reading the great reviews. However, it is not for families with somewhat picky eaters. Hamburgers and grilled cheese were not very good and did not come with any side like chips or fries -...More

A great place for Sunday brunch! First, the beautiful drive to get here. The meal starts with scones and a berry jam that you will want to bathe in. Then an excellent meal. Corn and Chile quiche is packed full of flavor. The Green Chile...More

Hwy 68 through the gorge means delays this fall. This run between Taos & Santa Fe we decided to take the high road instead and stop for lunch. Sugar Nymphs is still terrific, including their high altitude baking
