No visit to Santa Fe is complete without eating a traditional northern New Mexico breakfast. If you like heat, order something with chile. It’s the official state vegetable and much beloved all around the state. Try the local version of the breakfast burrito: a concoction of eggs, breakfast meat, potatoes and cheese smothered in either red or green chile. Want to sample them both? Ask for Christmas. Always ask to taste the chile before ordering it. Most restaurants won’t take your food back if you complain it’s too hot. You can also order local favorites such as huevos rancheros or an original offering such as Eggs Consuelo at The Pantry. Most eateries have at least one signature dish. Don’t want spicy? Most places have pancakes, French toast, waffles and the old American staple, bacon (or sausage) and eggs. You can find breakfast options from the downtown to the south side of town and beyond such as Harry’s Roadhouse or Café San Marcos. If you need something on the run, grab a handheld breakfast burrito at El Parasol. In the mood for delicious and healthy? Try Café Pasqual’s where organic reigns. If you want to go 180 degrees, try one of the many bakeries around the city where you can enjoy freshly baked breakfast pastries with a cup of good, strong coffee or an interesting tea.
