There aren't many places to eat in Ojo Caliente for folks visiting the spa during the week but the Red Mountain Cafe (pizza place) is a real winner. We ordered a salad and a pizza and both were excellent. The field greens were VERY fresh and probably local -- haven't had better anywhere. Being born in Chicago I'm a pizza... More

While staying at the resort in Ojo Caliente, my wife and I decided to grab a bite to eat for lunch (we had reservations for dinner at the restaurant at the resort and didn't want to eat there twice) so we drove back out towards the main road and did our usual "Yelp" search for where to eat. There are... More

I was pleasantly surprised when I stopped in at Red Mountain Cafe in Ojo Callente. NM Everything tasted great. It seemed to be the only cafe in town but it was never short of people coming and going. Quality ingredients for sure. I would highly recommend the cafe.

The pizza with roasted green chile pesto base, ham and mushroom and onion, was so good that it brought tears to my eyes. The crust was delectable: crisp and chewy and flavorful. The toppings were all fresh and of extraordinarily good quality. Sure, there's a bit of a wait, but that's because there's an artist in the kitchen, crafting a... More

Conveniently across the Taos Trail Inn, they offer pizza by the slice or in whole, sandwiches and some delicious home made soups. Coffee drinks are available, as well as a selection of deserts. There is seating indoors as well as a few seats outdoors... More

Earlier this month I stopped at Red Mountain Cafe as there aren't that many places to eat in Ojo Caliente, and the menu on the board seemed interesting and nice. Dave runs this place but unfortunately has severe behavioral issues and the customer service is terrible. When I first went there a 4pm to look at the menu boards, the... More

Stopped here because wanted some coffee and noticed the espresso on the sign (and there are not a whole lot of other options other than gas stations). Ended up grabbing a superb latte and some very good pizza-various varieties with jalapenos. Would rate food and coffee at 5/5. Only downside to place was employee seemed almost annoyed by my presence,... More

We always stop by this tiny cafe for freshly-made soup or stew, sandwiches, and yummy desserts. The owner is all alone, whisking around, constantly in motion, making things as you watch. The chicken chile stew is delicious, the smoked turkey and swiss sandwich juicy and incredible. When there are lemon squares, it is worth the drive. He is also a... More
