Trading Post Cafe Review

Local hipsters outnumber tourists at this casual spot serving mostly modern Italian fare with regional accents. Intelligent and attentive service along with well-presented contemporary Southwestern art make any meal a pleasure. For starters try the signature noodle soup or minestrone with smoked ham before moving on to an oven-roasted duck with seasonal vegetables and creamy mashed potatoes or any of the traditional pasta dishes, such as penne Arrabbiata (with spicy Italian sausage). Superb desserts include a coconut-cream pie and rich strawberry shortcake. Parking is just around the back, off NM 518.

    Trading Post Cafe Review

    This has been my favorite eating place in Taos for years. The Italian menu is complete--we've haven't been able to eat our way through the whole thing. Given the choice, we prefer to sit at the bar and watch the cooking and check out each dish. When traveling to Santa Fe from Colorado, we always take the route through Taos so we can have a meal here, not to mention shopping the art in town. We can park our RV in the back parking lot for the evening, which makes it easy to stop for the night.
