Described as a Southwestern Bistro and a Santa Fe landmark, Santacafé has been delighting guests with awe-inspiring fine dining and an upbeat attitude since 1983. Nestled in a 19th Century historical abode, the restaurant has four candlelit dining rooms complete with corner fireplaces and charming ceilings.
The O’Keeffe inspired outdoor patio provides ample seating and provides a casual and intimate surrounding for Santa Fe’s “power” lunch crowd. Santacafé features New American cuisine with a contemporary Southwesternstyle and an elegant presentation. Offerings such as Tiger Prawn Tempura with Red Chile Sweet & Sour, Grilled Filet Mignon with Serrano Chile Butter, House-made Coffee Ice Cream with Piñon Crisps, Green Chile Country Mashed Potatoes, and Fish ‘n Chips with Southwestern Tartar Sauce, are just a few of our delicious surprises that have drawn accolades from publications such as The New York Times, Gourmet, Bon Appetit, and The Wall Street Journal.
Frequented by the famous and infamous, the Santacafé patio has some of the best people-watching Santa Fe has to offer! During high season, our courtyard, protected by a sun canopy, becomes one of the most coveted locales in Santa Fe.
Santacafé is also pleased to offer free parking in our lot, accessible from Washington Avenue.
