Fodor's Expert Review La Cueva Cafe

$ Plaza and Vicinity Mexican

This casual Mexico–meets–New Mexico eatery in an 1850s building is run by Mexico-born couple Juana and Horacio Zarazua, who have built a devoted following working previously in some of the best restaurants in town. Their specialty is regional Mexican food, including ceviche, chipotle shrimp tacos, and several other seafood dishes, plus chile rellenos, chicken mole enchiladas, and some familiar New Mexico–style standbys. There's a good selection of vegetarian items, too, and everything at La Cueva is gluten-free. Breakfast is served daily, and there's a cheery patio out back.
