Sunset Rooftop Cocktails
Blue Corn Cafe located in downtown Santa Fe is the coolest hangout for locals and visitors alike. A favorite for more than 20 years, they feature casual New Mexican cuisine, pub fare and are the shining stars for serious award-winning, handcrafted beer, which compliments a full bar and wine list. If you’re ready for a fun and affordable night out in a fabulous location to take in the Santa Fe scene, this is your place. Within breezy decor—wooden tables and abstract art—you’ll find a raucous and buoyant atmosphere, and an excellent place to bring kids.
The menu features great burgers, pub fare and classic New Mexican cuisine. Try a sampling of dishes from the combination menu. Get two to five New Mexican food items served with your choice of rice, beans, or some of the best posole that you will taste. The chicken enchilada will comfortably fill that hunger hole, and the chalupa is fresh yet familiar. Enjoy supreme tacos, tamales and rellenos or the Corn Chipotle Chowder, filling and bursting with flavor. Nightly specials include the tasty shrimp fajitas, served with a delicious guacamole. Kids choose from their own menu and, of course, there are crayons to keep you and them both on a creative journey. Because this is also one of New Mexico’s favorite breweries, you might want to sample the Malty-Ness Monster or Roadrunner IPA. Taste wines from California, Spain, Chile and New Mexico. Their house-made prickly-pear iced tea is the essence of refreshment – black tea with enough cactus juice to give it a zing.
The Blue Corn Cafe is just rustic enough to give it that proper Santa Fe feel, and just contemporary enough to ensure you have all the comforts you could want for your travels. The outdoor patio never lets you forget you are in the heart of the City Different. Located near the Plaza, this is truly Santa Fe-style casual dining at its best!
