Backstreet Bistro

Since it’s mid-week I thought I’d share a secret. Since I’m sharing this online it won’t be a much of a secret but… you know.

Backstreet Bistro (513 Camino De Los Marquez)

is kind of like a secret in Santa Fe, it’s a little hidden and I think that is to keep some of the tourists out. I’m pretty happy about that because it’s a great spot of a work week lunch. It has a very relaxed and homey atmosphere almost small town diner(ish). They do soups, salads and sandwiches and man are they good. All home-made and all great. There soups change on the daily and they always have 4-6 options, they even have their own blogspot for the daily soups . One of my favorites is their chicken and wild rice (yum).

They let you make any combination you like, soup and salad, sandwich and soup or vice versa. Oh, did I mention they have dessert too? If your ever around in the Autumn season you h a v e to stop in for some pumpkin pie, it’s like the best- really. I’m already looking forward to it’s return.

They are open Monday-Saturday but I mostly find myself stopping in mid-week as a little pick me up to the work week.

Anyway it’s just good food and a relaxed atmosphere that can help make a mundane Wednesday or Thursday more bearable. Hope that you stop in and remember ‘shhh’ don’t tell all the tourists.


P.S. Look for the blue awning on Camino de los Marquez , otherwise you might miss it 🙂
