Palacio Cafe is a small family run place.  Windows to the street bring in lots of light to the colorful room.  Art is on the walls and a counter is opposite the street windows for service and pass through to the kitchen.  Some tables were also out front if weather cooperates.  Music was in the background, plants were hanging from the ceiling that had wood logs crossing it – the room had a good feel.  Service was efficient, friendly and the portions generous.  The food was well seasoned, not fancy but really good.

Steak Tacos were made with sirloin steak strips, Cojita cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, red onions, rice, pinto beans and salsa fresca.  The beans and salsa came out in separate bowls and the tacos were on a little stand that kept the ingredients inside.  It was a good plate.

Smothered breakfast burrito was filled with two eggs, potatoes, cheddar cheese, bacon, rolled in a large flour tortilla and topped with choice of green or red chile.  It was huge and we chose to have it ‘Christmas’ style which is both red and green chile sauce.  There was a choice of bacon or sausage and we chose bacon which was tasty and added a lot of flavor to the burrito.  The tortilla was nicely soft, both sauces were good and it all blended into a wonderfully tasty plate.

Pear Salad was a delicious blend of field greens, sliced pear, candied pecans and crumbled blue cheese and served with a homemade balsamic vinaigrette.  There was a generous amount of blue cheese, nuts and pears to mix with the greens and the dressing came on the side.  It was fresh and tasty and a nice lighter option to the standard heavy New Mexican fare.
