Choose Between Four Options
The Italian countryside meets the American southwest at Cafe Cafe. Drawing inspiration from both regions' cuisines, cooks prepare Mediterranean dishes with the occasional bit of New Mexican flair. They offer a selection of sandwiches, soups, and salads in addition to inventive favorites such as buffalo green chile lasagna and smoked tomato salmon penne. However, traditional Italian cooking dominates the majority of the menu. Handmade meatballs and house-made marinara are tossed with fresh linguine, lemon-caper sauce lends its signature tang to chicken piccata, and the fiery oven bakes pizzas to a toothsome crisp. Cafe Cafe is open seven nights a week and offer a happy hour from 3 p.m.–6 p.m., which includes specials on pizza by the slide in addition to a selection of microbrews, and $6 glasses of wine.
