only for locals apparently – My husband and I usually have great experiences at restaurants, and we figure it is because we are gracious, patient, and tip generously. So, it was much to my chagrin when I was completely ignored by the seemingly friendly staff for fifteen minutes when sitting at the counter, while meantime, a local came up the counter, sat down next to me, and was handed a fresh cup of coffee immediately. This is the point that I finally gave up and left. There are many places with excellent food in santa fe, and this place was just not worth the wait, unless you are a local, which is not fair, because this town survives because of its tourism.
Down home food – It's tough getting seated, since there is always a wait unless you want to sit at the counter. My sister and I sat at the counter and it took a few minutes before we were waited on. The service was friendly once they got to you. it was very crowded and tight quarters. We had an excellent lunch of some traditional Mexican fare (chicken mole stew) with large portions. I would recommend getting in line for a seat before you're hungry!
Great for Breakfast! – Enjoyed breakfast here on a recent trip to Santa Fe. Sat at the counter and had delicouse huevos rancheros, which I tried to recreate at home and just weren't the same. Expect to wait on a Sunday morning as the entire Plaza area was bustling. Staff was cheerful and attentive.
