Tecolote Cafe - Santa Fe, NM

This is simply the best place for breakfast in Santa Fe, and perhaps anywhere. Friendly is what best describes the atmosphere. It was one of our favorites, and when we lived in SF we went often. Bill and Alice would make it a point to come around to say hello and spend a few moments to share what was going on in their lives, and to find out what was happening in ours. This was not a sales ploy but rather a genuine interest in who was visiting their cafe. It always felt very much like visiting the kitchen of dear friends. Of course these friends made sure to place a large basket of freshly made muffins (lovingly baked by Alice) on every table, and when breakfast was delivered by staff members who clearly loved their jobs it was always perfection on a plate. (Just give me eggs and green chile and I'll be happy...) True, we haven't been there in a few years, but our friends  in town continue to go and rave the reviews continue on. Tecolote is nothing less than a legend, and when in Santa Fe it is quite simply - a must.

Just before writing this I discovered, with great sorrow, that Bill passed away just a month ago in May as a result of an earlier fall. What a loss to the community. We shall keep Alice and the rest of their family in our thoughts. I'm sure that under the family's sure guiding hands Tecolote will continue to be what his vision first inspired in June of 1980.

Evaluation: Extraordinarily sincere!
