Yummy Food With a Big Mission: To Make You Feel Right at Home

At the Plaza Café Southside, everything on the menu is made from scratch. The Southside’s famous recipes have been handed down for generations, and the Razatos family has been serving Santa Fe using fresh, quality ingredients since 1947. But for co-owners Leonardo Razatos and Belinda Marshall, great food is about more than what it’s made of.

At the Plaza Café Southside, guests will also get a taste of just what the Southwest is all about. Diners are treated like family, and the staff is proud to share an authentic Santa Fe experience with everyone who enters.

People who understand cooking know that when a meal is cooked fresh with the best ingredients, it not only tastes better — it makes you feel better. This takes time, so the Plaza Cafe starts early every morning baking their homemade breads, buns, biscuits, and muffins...and don't forget the signature pies, cakes, and cookies! Dessert is a treat not to be missed here.

The Plaza Cafe Southside has been named to the Santa Fe Reporter’s “Best of Santa Fe” and “25 Faves” list of top restaurants since 2016, and has been voted “Best Business on the Southside” for four years running.

With plenty of free parking, a full bar, and outdoor seating on the patio, this Southside establishment welcomes visitors and locals alike. Come meet us at the Southside — we can't wait to see you!

The Plaza Café Southside is the offspring of the legendary Plaza Café,
a Santa Fe institution since 1947, owned by the Razatos family. Southside owner Leonard Razatos
opened his restaurant in 2003 on Cerrillos Road, and in the summer of 2009
moved to a new home near the Regal Stadium 14 movie theaters in San Isidro Plaza.
