Tired of Green Chile? Go Greek!

Our hot breakfast entrees at The Hacienda Nicholas Bed & Breakfast Inn often center around Southwestern cuisine - Breakfast Enchiladas, Blue Corn Pinon Waffles, Roasted Poblanos with Quinoa and Chipotle Sauce, etc.  While many visitors to Santa Fe take great delight in having red and/or green chile for breakfast, lunch and dinner, there are plenty who are happy to have a break.  While it may seem counter intuitive, we do have a couple of really tasty Greek/Mediterranean style restaurants in Santa Fe.

My favorite is The Pyramid Cafe, serving tasty gyros with tzatziki sauce, creamy hummus, flaky spanakopita and flavorful tabouli.  Word has it that their lamb gyros and other grilled meats are truly succulent, though they also have an extensive selection of vegetarian dishes.  Entrees range from about $10-14 each.  Bordering on a dive-look, the place is actually quite cozy and welcoming once you get inside..  Just don't expect a lot from the decor.  That being said, the food is really fresh and the staff is very friendly and accommodating.  If you are able, plan your dinner to coincide with the belly dancers who appear at The Pyramid the second Friday of every month.
