Breakfast in Downtown Santa Fe: Convenience and traditional foods

Patio at Santa Fe Bite
There are some great breakfast restaurants in Santa Fe but not all of them are within walking distance of downtown hotels. We've selected two that are walkable from most downtown locations. 

Santa Fe Bite
Located adjacent to Garrett's Desert Inn and across the street from the Inn at the Alameda you'll find a new restaurant on the downtown scene.
Huevos Rancheros at The Bite

While Santa Fe Bite is new, the owners and cuisine is not. You see, this restaurant was formerly the popular Bobcat Bite which was located out of town. It now is right in the midst of the action on Canyon Road and The Plaza, easily walkable from both. 

The new "Bite" has an expansive patio, a nicely appointed dining room and maintains some of the old favorites like the Green Chile Cheeseburger. In fact, I found that you can have one for brunch on Sunday.

Delightful French Toast at La Plazuela
La Plazuela
Located inside the historic La Fonda, you'll find a welcoming indoor courtyard with great New Mexican and traditional American cuisine.

La Plazuela restaurant was the hotel’s original 1920s patio and it retains that sunlit Old World charm. Skylights flood the dining room with natural light. Handsome carved furnishings, artisanal lighting, and those much-loved hand painted windows create a beautiful backdrop for a memorable breakfast.
