IMG_2468Picture it, I’m running through the Santa Fe Plaza Arcade with the wonderful smell of coffee tempting my nose, like a carrot being dangled in front of a rabbit. After a few failed attempts at locating the source of my afternoon craving, I finally found it. A coffee oasis in Santa Fe – 35° North Coffee.

The staff or perhaps the owners/managers were incredibly friendly. I was ready to order a large house blend coffee, when what do my little eyes see written in big bold white chalked letters? Beignets. Oh my little paws were trembling with joy. I had to have an order with my coffee.

The coffee was fresh and wonderfully roasted, but the star of this visit were the beignets. These are the real deal. I closed my eyes and felt as if I was sitting in the French Quarter in New Orleans. Yeah, that’s how good these bad boys are.

This place is large so you don’t have to worry about coming in and not finding a table. Along with an assortment of pastries, and beignets, they have a nice variety of lunch items including sandwiches and salads, all made fresh to order. None of this premade crap you get from…well I won’t name the big chain coffee place down the street. You all are smart enough to figure it out.

If you’re in the Plaza and needing a coffee fix, or even a quick and simple lunch, pass by the other place and get yourself over to 35° North Coffee. You won’t be disappointed. This place rocks!
