San Marcos Cafe is a local favorite with many. Located about eight miles south of the city line, it's far enough out of town for a "getaway" but close enough to be somewhat convenient. The building is quaint and loaded with character, the food is always very good and the wait staff is mostly personable (there was this one waitress who never seemed to be very friendly but we haven't seen her in a while). Prices are maybe a little on the higher side (maybe 10-20% lower would be more in line) but for an occasional treat the San Marcos Cafe should be on your list of places to visit.

This is a great spot for breakfast or lunch when you are on the way to Madrid or just want to get out of town. The food is very good and the service is efficient. The ambiance was a bit dark. They even have peacocks roaming the property.

My husband and I frequent the Cafe because their corned beef hash with eggs is the best! Tender beef, not too salty with perfectly cooked potatoes. Service can be slow during busy times, so one cannot be in a hurry. We always take home one of their giant cinnamon buns to enjoy with afternoon coffee.

The best breakfast EVER!! This is a hidden spot and when we were there it was full of locals. The ambience is really cozy. I ordered half blintz- it was so delicious with cream filling inside topped with raspberry sauce. I also had spinach bake over scrambled eggs served with hash browns. It was sooooo good and was served with their house made garlic bread. Husband had breakfast burrito. Their sauce is out of the world delicious. The french toast is one of the best we have ever had. It is a must order!! We also ordered cinnamon bun. It was crunchy on the outside and soft of the inside. It was huge though, 2-4 people can easily share it. Make sure to put some butter on it and it will take the flavor to the next level.
All in all, great flavor packed food with great customer service. This is a must try if you are traveling on the turquoise trail. Hidden gem, that I really hope stays hidden ;-)

Besides arriving and seeing beautiful peacocks everywhere, the inside was just as cool. Walked inside, and had to take in the antique cook stoves, wood burning stoves, and all of the little touches that make you feel right at home. The coffee was wonderful, breakfast was an omelette with veggies, homefries, fresh fruit, and their homemade herb bread served warm. It was delicious, and more than I could eat. Beautiful drive to get there. Will definitely go back!
