Concierge.com's insider take:
This casual one-room restaurant has long been a local Santa Fe icon. Opened in 1979, it was working the organic-fresh angle long before the rest of the world caught on, and it continues to be busy from 7 a.m. till closing. At the center communal table, you'll find local hippies having a late-afternoon breakfast of red-chile huevos rancheros, as well as tourists trying the iconic salmon burrito with goat cheese and cucumber salsa. Chef Katharine Kagel, who calls herself the Luddite Chef, keeps the fusion factor low. But the casual vibe also makes it a hurry-up-and-eat kind of place: Tables are few, and the staff keeps them turning.
