Interesting little place...peacocks great you at the door. The food was flavorful and presented well. I had a burrito that was great. It isn't fancy on the outside or inside but it has a local hangout vibe. I would recommend this place.

San Marcos Cafe is a local favorite with many. Located about eight miles south of the city line, it's far enough out of town for a "getaway" but close enough to be somewhat convenient. The building is quaint and loaded with character, the food is...More

My husband and I frequent the Cafe because their corned beef hash with eggs is the best! Tender beef, not too salty with perfectly cooked potatoes. Service can be slow during busy times, so one cannot be in a hurry. We always take home one...More

Besides arriving and seeing beautiful peacocks everywhere, the inside was just as cool. Walked inside, and had to take in the antique cook stoves, wood burning stoves, and all of the little touches that make you feel right at home. The coffee was wonderful, breakfast...More

My brother insists on coming to this cafe for breakfast. The location is probably a local favorite, BUT not worth the drive to eat in cramped and an uncomfortable interior. The food is ok, typical of Santa Fe quizine, the cinnamon rolls are outstanding. The...More

It is fun to see and hear the many peacocks and turkeys strutting their stuff outside this small out of the way restaurant. Feels like a step back in time. The food is excellent and freshly homemade. The standard breakfast items taste so good, hard...More

We've been there twice for breakfast. I think the food is comparable to other places we've eaten. Wait service could be improved. Tables are kind of tight, I don't sleep that close to my wife as I was sitting next to my neighbor. And their...More

I don't know about their menu tomorrow. You can probably call them early and see. Google their number. You'll probably want reservations anyway....
