In the nation’s oldest capital city, the four distinctly diverse seasons encourage visitors and locals to sip enthusiastically and savor special moments with the perfect beverage and a memorable sweet treat.
Whether you are in search of the ideal henna-colored coffee or prefer an array of loose teas, Santa Fe is up for the challenge with a constantly growing offering of exquisite sips and places to sip and be seen.
The city also has a burgeoning microbrewery and distillery scene that is wildly popular. If you are looking for even more adult beverage options, the state boasts more than 40 widely recognized wineries and distilleries, including a few exclusive watering holes that beckon thirty tourists from all over the country and internationally. Beer lovers will be eager to make a dent in exploring the suds of more than 50 microbreweries, brew pubs, brew houses and tap rooms throughout the Land of Enchantment. But, you are on your own for determining your drinking plans, because it’s been years since I drank with enthusiasm and only imbibe in a bottle or two of wine annually. As I get older, alcohol has proved it isn’t the friend it once was and I am fine with this.
Because Santa Fe makes everyone (locals and tourists) feel celebratory and joyful, the opportunities to treat yourself to something sweet are also within arms length and abundant. If you require gluten-free or vegan treats, you’re set. If you desire something more decadent, such as traditional French pastries, rustic breads, locally-sourced ice cream or creative chocolate confections, Santa Fe has boundless goodies just waiting for you.
These are some of our favorite places to sip coffee and tea and treat ourselves to algo dulce (something sweet).
