My Santa Fe: The Aztec Cafe

The Aztec Cafe, a cool little cafe, tucked around the corner from Cowgirl, is one of my favorite hangouts in Santa Fe. My accountability partner and I meet here once a week, going here for the healthy food, as well as the laid back atmosphere and comfy environment. Open less than a year, it has become a locals favorite for sure.

Wheat grass shots to super power drinks, you will find a menu with lots of healthy choices, including salads and soups, vegetarian, vegan and raw, as well as their claim to “the best burritos in town,”  and I agree.  I promise, all are delicious. Yesterday I enjoyed the Portobello Sandwich, with portobello mushrooms, sautéed spinach, red peppers, baby greens, shaved parmesan cheese and wheatberry toast.

Delicious and presented so beautifully! I love that they always add a slice of grapefruit to every plate. A tasty palette cleanse at the end of a meal.


My partner enjoyed the House Made Raw Muesli,  (almonds, sunflower seeds, pecans, walnuts, pumpkin seeds, dried fruit, maple syrup, cinnamon, walnuts, pumpkin seeds, dried fruit) served with fresh fruit, maple syrup and almond or soy milk.

We both enjoy the atmosphere and setting.

In the morning, New Mexico sunshine streams through the windows.

Other items I have tried and enjoyed at the cafe are the vegan burrito, vegetarian burrito, Florentine Benedict (to die for), honey oat pancakes, (one of the best pancakes in town), green chile veggie soup,  veggie burger and my ultimate fav…the raw brownie!

The Aztec Cafe is a great place to eat and meet.  I hope you enjoy as much as I do!

See you around Santa Fe!
