Fodor's Review

Run with homespun care by the Razatos family since 1947, this café has been a fixture on the Plaza since 1905. 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. A South Side branch at 3466 Zafarano Drive (505/424–0755) is run by other members of the Razatos clan and is close to Cerrillos Road hotels.
