Tune-Up Cafe Restaurant Review

: At any time of day, this neighborhood café satisfies diners with a wide range of selections and New Mexican and El Salvadoran specialties. Hearty morning choices include the Tune-Up Breakfast, consisting of a chile relleno with roasted tomato salsa, eggs al gusto, and refried beans. Lunch features a tasty brown rice nut burger with garlic mayo and hand-cut fries, while the El Salvadoran pupusas have their own cult following. In the evening, Tune-Up offers sit-down service and robust dishes such as halibut and shrimp pasta with feta cheese and kalamata olives, and the backroom bar pours western craft beers on tap. Whenever you come, make sure to check the lively specials board, and save room for desserts like root beer floats and espresso chocolate brownie sundaes (made gluten-free). During warmer months, this eatery provides outdoor seating in one of Santa Fe’s most homey areas.
