Santa Fe’s oldest continuously operating restaurant, opened in 1905 by Greek immigrants the Ipiotis brothers, offers the best diner food in Santa Fe. It’s served in a suitably funky atmosphere, too, with colorful ceiling lights, linoleum-top tables, a neon wall clock, old black-and-white photos, and a soda-fountain-style counter with red vinyl-covered stainless steel stools. Plaza Cafe serves traditional American and New Mexican breakfasts—the blue corn piñon pancakes make a nice change—or go with the traditional ham and eggs or a “build your own omelet.” Lunch and dinner items include tortilla soup—avocado, tortilla strips, and Mexican cheeses—plus a good choice of salads and specialties such as chicken-fried steak, spicy fish and chips, grilled chicken, burgers, and sandwiches. The restaurant claims that its spaghetti sauce recipe is over 100 years old. There are several Greek items available, including moussaka—a casserole of eggplant, spiced meat, and a creamy béchamel sauce. Beer and wine are available.
