Burgers, salads, pizzas, sandwiches, and other light fare are served at this tiny café a block off the Plaza. The food is decent but the service can be brusque. The best attributes are the comfy patio overlooking pedestrian-heavy Water Street, the huge list of imported beers, and the late hours (it's open until 3 most nights)—an extreme rarity in Santa Fe. You'll be glad this place exists when the bars let out and you're famished.

Traveling with a 5 an 9 year old, the Atomic Grill was a great find. Accessible menu for kiddos (breakfast through lunch hours = frenchtoast with raspberry butter which works really well with root beer) and adult option are decent too (many, many good beers). Shaded and fan blown patio/alley tables are nice; ivy covered wall is home to numerous singing birds. Fast, attentive, polite service.

nothing special except the hours and the consistency.
