A word from Cafe Cafe
Cafe Café is a casual Italian/Southwestern style restaurant. Our atmosphere is a warm and comfortable environment where friends and family can meet to enjoy the comforts of life. Both lunch and dinner are served in a friendly manner where you feel like family. A casual style at lunch and a table cloth and candlelight atmosphere at dinner. With live entertainment on Friday and Saturday nights, Café Café is more then a place to eat it is a place where memories are made. When weather permits, we have a beautiful outdoor patio for dining.
Our cuisine is traditional Italian fare with hints of Southwestern influences. Our traditional Italian favorites are homestyle good and our Southwestern dishes are creative and unique. We use only the freshest ingredients from local sources when available and everything is made in house including our breads and delightful desserts.
Café Café combines great food made from scratch, warm and friendly service and an upscale and energetic atmosphe

Diner Reviews
  • "During our 5-day vacation we ate out every night and this was one of our favorites. We were craving pasta and this fit the bill. Good food, good wine, nice atmosphere and wonderful service. Don't remember her name, but she made me think she was possibly an owner and not just a waitress??"

  • "We had a nice relaxing dinner at Cafe Cafe after a long day of skiing. They menu is varied and offers a lot of choices. For appetizers, we had the fried calamari/artichokes combo. It came with 3 delicious dipping sauces- tomato, aioli, and sardine/lemon. For dinner, two of us split a 12" Margherita pizza- it was delicious but it was really large for us. We could have split the 10" instead. I also had the house salad that was good. My son had the pepperoni 12" pizza which he enjoyed. My husband had the chicken piccata which he said was great. We would go back the next time we are in Santa Fe."

  • "In my opinion the food was ok, not wow. I can only recall one oyster that was amazing, all the rest were mediocre."

  • "From the moment you walk into Café Café you are made to feel as if you have come home. The ambience is warm and cozy and the staff are outstanding! Definitely try the one of the specials sometime -- they are always outstanding. For the early birds the pizza for two is a steal -- and the pizza is wonderful. I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who hasn't tried it yet."

  • "A nice wine list and great specials each evening. I recommend the Green Chili Buffalo Lasagna for a touch of the southwest in a great Italian treat. So many great dishes to choose from -- you won't be disappointed."

  • "My kids and I were visiting my dad and I suggested we find a restaurant with Italian food. My dad had not tried Cafe Cafe yet so we gave it a shot. The staff was very friendly and service was great. We eat out regularly and the kids menu had a lot of unique options and the activities kept them entertained. The crust on the pizza the kids ordered was yummy and I loved the bison/green chile lasagna the server recommended - great flavor."

  • "If you want the best Italian food in Santa Fe, find this restaurant. Most of food is made from scratch with Old World emphasis on taste and quality. The wine list is satisfactory and completes the flavors of the entries. The service from the wait staff is impeccable. The place is small so reserve early."

  • "I was dining alone while in town for work. The staff made me feel very welcome, like family. The food was delicious. The focaccia was so good ! Fresh & warm served with an olive tapenade. The Chicken Piccata was wonderful. Fresh, tender chicken pieces with a light lemon caper sauce. The portion was generous. I ordered a side of homemade pasta to go, so I could have the Chicken Picatta the next day at work over the pasta. They also fixed a nice box of focaccia to go as well. There seemed to be only 3 people working but they treated each table like they were the only people in the room. I will definitely return when working in the area and also make the drive from Albuquerque when we have out of town visitors."

  • "Their pizza is outstanding. their pizza specialty dinner w/salad, wine, and pizza is the best deal in town for $25 for two. sometimes the house caesar is really good…..other times they use too much of the cruddy (foodie term) tough lettuce of the romaine instead of the hearts. Really like the low key band on fri., sat and sun. overall….would highly recommend…..but i only go there for pizza special cuz i really like it."

  • "Had a lovely dinner for our group of 6. Our waitress was delightful and the food was a nice departure from other Santa Fe fare. Had the linguini with white clam sauce. It was very good. I only order that dish when I'm sure about the place. I was not disappointed! Our group also enjoyed lasagne and a lovely pumpkin creme brûlée. Guitar player in background made for lovely ambiance. Go and enjoy!"

  • "We eat here every time we are in Santa Fe. It's my 7 year old daughters favorite place. I have tried almost every pizza joint in town, and this one is the best yet. We sit outside when it's nice, and enjoy live music with our dinner. Try the homemade Italian cream sodas- they're the real deal, and outstanding."
