Please review my DIY walking tour and add snacks/drinks stop

Hi. We will be staying in Taos but my dad suggested a visit to Santa Fe to see Loretto Chapel. After a bit of research I decided we could do a little walking tour and also see San Miguel Mission, The Oldest House and Cathedral Basilica of St Francis. I need to map it out but I think we will meet and start from Santa Fe Plaza. Any suggestions on order or logistics? Anything we should add? I hope this is a leisurely 2-3 hour excursion. Wanting to do this during the day and we will probably have teens and a couple of kids in tow. We will likely want to stop for an adult beverage and a snack or two. Any suggestions for interesting restaurants or breweries along our path? Many thanks!

One of my favorite New Mexico breweries is Blue Corn Brewery, which has a location right off the plaza. Check out the French Pastry Shop for the best baked goods as a snack. One block from the Bascilica, cash only.

Perfect! I will add Blue Corn Brewery to the list. We love craft beer.

Plenty of other spots close to the 4 places you want to visit. I'd start with the furthest the Oldest Church and Oldest House. You will walk by Upper Crust Pizza, Santa Fe Bite on your way to the Loretto Chapel with Del Charro a short walk away. We love the prices at Del Charro!

The Loretto Chapel is across from La Fonda Hotel, a place to check out for lunch at La Plazuela. The Cathedral Basilica is a block from the Plaza and is seen easily as you arrive on the Plaza. Places to dine near the Plaza are The Plaza Cafe , The Shed and Rooftop Pizzera
