Really enjoyed Counter Culture’s food and casual clean vibe. The food was fresh and potions huge. I had a chopped salad that was enough for two people. Bakery items are enormous and the coffee was excellent. Great for entire family.

Tucked into what passes for a mini strip mall in Santa Fe, this unassuming (from the outside) diner proved to be a cornucopia of goodness. A coffeeshop-cum-eclectic-eatery, Counter Culture is packed with, well, counter-culture people. Granola folk. Hipsters. Himalayan salt of the earth. But don't...More

The cinnamon buns are great, as is the wonderful coffee from Aroma coffee. Not to mention the hefty and flavorful Durango omelette and fresh rice wrap spring rolls. In fact, I’ve always had great food here, whatever we ordered. Nice outdoor spaces to sit also.

I visit this restaurant whenever I'm in Santa Fe. It's one of my favorites. There are plenty of dairy-free and gluten-free choices. The restaurant is clean and pleasant. There is usually interesting artwork to view and purchase. One negative is that they don't accept credit...More

Stopped in and we split two items : the handheld burrito and the cowboy bowl. All accompanied by coffee, tea, and a large glass of OJ.

Whether you meet friends here or have breakfast/ lunch/ dinner by yourself, it’s a great place to go. There is no wait service, you order your food and sit down. They will bring it to you. I love the two eggs over medium with potatoes...More

A Santa Fe favorite. My office is just down the street from here---and food is always reliable and tasty. Pancake specials are always great (but really BIG---share with a friend), and the burgers and fries can't be beat The haystax (house cut fries) are outstanding--and...More

We found the Counter Culture restaurant / coffee shop on our last day in Santa Fe. We regret that unfortunate fact. We only had coffee and tea at CC. But the menu boards, cakes and pastries looked fabulous. Especially the bundt cakes! There’s a large...More
