The Plaza Café has been serving locals and visitors in downtown Santa Fe since 1918! It's easy to see why it's lasted: in addition to a great view of the historic Santa Fe plaza from the front tables, the Plaza Café offers good food at reasonable prices. The red vinyl booths and the pastry case (with a fabulous neon sign) behind the counter evoke a real "diner"€ feel, as does the busy, friendly atmosphere.

There's something here for everyone. The Plaza offers such local favorites as posole, tacos and enchiladas as well as a selection of "American diner"€ classics (meatloaf, burgers and sandwiches) served with or without the southwestern twist. They even have a few Greek items on the menu: salad with feta cheese and kalamata olives, gyros and moussaka.

Get "breakfast"€ here any time. You can have plain old bacon and eggs with hash browns or go local with a breakfast burrito or huevos rancheros. My new favorite is the eggs divorciados: two eggs on corn tortillas with guacamole and hash browns. One egg is topped with a red chipotle salsa; the other has a green tomatillo salsa topping. Despite the name, the divorciados flavors are a perfect marriage.
