Trading Post Cafe, Taos, 9/14/23

exterior – 4179 NM-68, Ranchos De Taos, NM 87557

The Trading Post Cafe was an eclectic cafe with a deli offering meats and cheeses by the pound as well as coolers selling produce and other supplies.  There were several rooms with the main one having a long bar in front of the grill area.  The aroma of cooking burgers greeted you when you walked in.  We were there to have a snack and mostly visit with some friends so we didn’t try too many things.  I gather it’s only recently opened as they did not yet have a license for beer or wine, but that is in the process.  Also when I googled it to get details it sent me to a coffee roasting site and then another linked me to an Italian restaurant.  Regardless, if you’re in Taos and looking for a little spot to eat I’d give this one a try.

A special that day was the marinated beet salad with local goat cheese and roasted piñons.  Our friends enjoyed it and the bite I had was well-seasoned.

The Avocado BLT was with mayo on sourdough bread.  The bread was lovely and appeared that it was griddle toasted before being made into a sandwich.  The tomato was not especially strong tasting but there was a nice amount of crisp bacon and it wasn’t overly spread with mayo.  Some iceberg lettuce completed the sandwich but my half didn’t seem to get much avocado.  It was fresh and tasty.

House-seasoned fries came in a cone with a separate container of ketchup.  They were a small cut and nicely seasoned with varying amounts of crispness.  There was plenty in one order for two to split.
