Santa Fe Travel Guide: Food

There are so, SO many places to eat in Santa Fe, it's ridiculous. I believe Santa Fe has more restaurants per person than any other city in America. Now, this is MY list of favorite places to go. I am not a foodie and I don't care if the place is fancy or not. Most of the places on this list are super casual and you definitely don't need a reservation for any of them. I included the hours of business, because a lot of these restaurants have odd hours/don't serve dinner/close really early.
Enjoy!

NEW MEXICAN
Tia Sophia's Restaurant
Location: 210 W San Francisco Street, Santa Fe, NM
Hours: Monday- Saturday 7am-2pm; Sunday 8am-1pm
What to order: A taco plate, pinto beans, posole, and a sopaipilla. Really anything on the menu.

Blue Corn Cafe & Brewery
Location: 133 W Water St, Santa Fe, NM + 4056 Cerrillos Rd, Santa Fe, NM
Hours: Daily 11am until close
What to order: Navajo Taco, because I bet you haven't had that before. If you are vegetarian, get the taco plate with calabacitas in them instead of meat. Do yourself a favor and go to the Water Street location, because it's more fun.

Thunderbird Cafe
Location: 50 Lincoln Avenue, Santa Fe, NM
Hours: Daily 11:30am-9pm
What to order: Posole!!!

Caffe Greco
Location: 233 Canyon Rd., Santa Fe, NM
Hours: Daily 9am-6pm
What to order: Green chili cheeseburger. But don't wait around inside the cafe while they are cooking it. I have done that before and cried involuntarily, because the chili was so hot.


GREEK
Pyramid Cafe
Location: 505 W Cordova, Santa Fe, NM
Hours: Daily 11am-9pm
What to order: Go ahead and order everything on the menu. Everything is good!

Cleopatra Cafe
Location: 418 Cerrillos Rd, Santa Fe, NM + 3482 Zafarano Dr, Santa Fe, NM

PIZZA
Dion's

Hours: Sunday-Thursday 10:30am-10pm; Friday-Saturday 10:30am-11pm

Counter Culture

What to order: The big, fat, gigantic French toast. You need to prepare before you go for this toast. Either go on a really long run, do some early morning hiking, go to hot yoga. OR. You can just not think about the calories, which would be my approach.

What to order: Go for high tea and eat whatever they give you! Make sure to sit by the big window that looks into the bakery, so that you can watch them make chocolate cake.
