Fodor's Review

Run with homespun care by the Razatos family since 1947, this café has been a fixture on the Plaza since 1918. The decor—red leather banquettes, black Formica tables, tile floors, a coffered tin ceiling, and a 1940s-style service counter—hasn't changed much in the past half century. The food runs the gamut, from cashew mole enchiladas to New Mexico meat loaf to chile-smothered burritos to a handful of Greek favorites, but the ingredients tend toward Southwestern. You'll be hard put to find a better tortilla soup. You can cool it off with an old-fashioned ice-cream treat from the soda fountain or a slice of one of the delicious, homemade pies. It's a good, tasty stop for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. The newer South Side branch at 3466 Zafarano Dr. (Tel. 505/424–0755) is close to Cerrillos Road hotels.

great local place right off the plaza

This place is great. you can get the local fare but if your burnt out on Christmas style whatev then you can fill the void with other eclectic grub. they even provide phone numbers to the governor of NM and provide the forecast for the day and all the while, you can look out the window to the plaza across the street.
