It's hard to get a great breakfast review in Santa Fe because of the competition. This place has a good breakfast, but falls down in other areas. They only take cash. The parking is very limited and difficult, even though the place was 1/4 full.

I started going to Counter Culture when it first opened some 15(?) years ago. At that time I came to Santa Fe for several mos. each year. I liked the name. I liked the Quonset hut look of the place. They served the best coffee...More

One word - deliciousness! We were looking for lunch in the area and our inn-keeper recommended Counter Culture. I am not sure we would have found it on our own - probably more of a locals joint - but we are sure glad we stopped...More
