“Great murals at bar, great salads”
Reviewed 16 April 2014 via mobile

Located on the Southside, away from the action in Santa Fe, which might be a good thing or a bad thing, depending on what you want. A new place but has nice murals, very Day of the Dead with New Mexico scenes, pretty cool. Had the Greek chicken souvlaki salad- super! Fresh, good ingredients, filling. Saw some pie that looks to die for, especially the caramel apple pie, but didn't try it.

“Merely a diner, with so-so food.”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

Ah, the title of the review says it all.

A few friends had recommended this place several times to me. Their recommendations led me to have high expectations. What I really got was a green chile cheeseburger, that was kind of dry, barely had green chile, and a very large serving of fries. For desert we ordered the Cuatro Leches cupcake and the red velvet cupcake. Cuatro Leches was quite delectable, whereas the Red Velvet cupcake was dry, and not even Red-Velvet.

Most likely would not return, or recommend.

“Good reliable diner”
Reviewed 1 April 2014

The southside location of a Santa Fe institution is a great breakfast choice, especially if getting a bite before heading back to the Albuquerque airport. Located off Cerrillos near I-25, Plaza has a very attractive classic "diner" atmosphere, excellent breakfast selections from fresh fruit and yogurt to bakery goods to local and regional favorites, like migas and huevos rancheros. Can get crowded in late mornings, but service is friendly and responsive.

“Tasty taste of New Mexican Cuisine”
Reviewed 25 March 2014

If you are in Santa Fe make sure you stop in the Plaza Café Southside for some delicious food !
They have a little bit of everything to please just about anyone's taste buds. I love their daily specials but anything on the regular menu is good too. They have the best Huevos con queso ! My mouth is watering just thinking about all of their entrees ! Make sure you are hungry when you go because you will want to save room for their homemade desserts ! Yum Yum !
