What You'll Get

Though variety is the spice of life, too much of it can cause outbreaks of plate-spinning, ventriloquism, and vicious heckling from balcony-dwelling Muppets. Spice your life in just the right amounts with today’s Groupon: for $17, you get $35 worth of authentic New Mexican cuisine and drinks at the Santa Fe Café on Phinney Avenue North.

The Santa Fe Café has been concocting its spicy stews since 1981, when two New Mexican brothers yearned for the sultry tastes of green and red chilies found back home. The resulting menu of peppery portions became a Seattle staple, serving up homemade posole and authentic Land of Enchantment dishes. Heat-hankering hungers will quiver before the chile relleno tart ($16.50), in which hot green chilies, mozzarella, and gruyere cheese are baked into a blue corn pastry with goat cheese custard, and the green chile burrito ($14/small, $16/large) awakens weary taste receptors to the joys of young love with shredded beef, onion, and tomato on a fresh tortilla topped with green chile and colby cheese. A drink like the Santa Fe Café style margarita ($7.50) will keep your gullet icy throughout your magma-inspired meal so you’re still able to taste a dessert of amaretto and orange flan ($6.25) nightcapped with a Santa Fe coffee (Herradura silver, Frangelico, and a touch of red chile topped with whipped cream; $9.50). The restaurant’s comfortable décor of green-and-white tiling and brightly painted wooden seats will make diners feel like they’re dining al fresco in Albuquerque while sparing them the comic misadventures that befall those who fail to take the left turn there.


Seattle Weekly recommended Santa Fe Café and The Stranger featured it. Yelpers the restaurant an average of 3.5 stars, and Citysearchers give it an average of four stars.

  • The red chile sauces are still fragrant, the posole continues to be a fun, spicy alternative to rice, and the blue corn tortillas look fabulous and taste even better. – Seattle Weekly
  • Authentic New Mexican cuisine. They don't skimp on the quality of the ingredients or on the heat. Highly recommended. – John E8621, Zagat
