Restaurants in Santa Fe

All of the gluten-free meals at Verde Juice, a beautifully stark new space just around the corner from Yoga Source, are liquid, made from organic produce as locally sourced as possible, and served in recyclable glass jars.

For a quick and satisfying bite, stop by this unassuming gem, where all of the food is house-made, from the smoothies and brownies to the Panini and green chile-topped pizza.

Tucked between the art galleries of Canyon Road and the historic neighborhood of Acequia Madre, the Downtown Subscription coffeeshop is frequented by locals.

Matt Yohalem's intimate neighborhood trattoria is a lively gathering spot for pre-opera-goers and post-gallery-hoppers. Windows overlook busy Marcy Street, a block from the Plaza, and butcher paper covers the tightly spaced tables.

Part roadhouse, part specialty grocer, the market is located just north of the center, in the neighborhood of Tesuque. Refuel with an oven-fired pizza after a hike on the Winsor Trail.

The iconic Pink Adobe restaurant, which is housed in a 400-year-old building and has been going strong since 1944, has one undeniably wonderful thing going for it: the always-packed Dragon Room lounge.

Easy to overlook in a strip mall on Cerrillos Road, Cafe Castro's is frequented by locals for their simple New Mexican food. The cafe is decorated in the usual Santa Fe style: terra cotta floors, thick vigas, and Mexican art, including Dia De Los Muertos paintings.

A small adobe building with sky-blue trim houses Vinaigrette, a farm-to-table salad bistro located off Cerrillos Road. The modern decor includes glossy red chairs, butcher block tables, and a moss-green tiled bar; the outdoor patio is shaded by an old apricot tree.

Located near the Railyard Park on Cerrillos Road, Chicago Dog Express sells authentic Vienna beef hot dogs from their food cart situated under the bright blue awning with Vienna-style tables nearby.

Located near Santa Fe Plaza, the Cafe Ecco Espresso and Gelato serves hand-pulled espresso drinks, spicy hot chocolate, deli sandwiches, pastries, and Italian-style gelato. The adobe building has a small patio space, while the inside is bright with daubed yellow walls and additional seating.

White stucco walls, a white wooden ceiling, and bare brick floors provide an unfussy if noisy backdrop for Santa Fe’s best tapas.
