Sad to say, but one of the nicer coffeehouse locations in Santa Fe and one of the few on the St. Michaels Drive corridor has closed its doors unexpectedly and without fanfare. Their staff was only passably friendly and their food was a little pricey...More

The drive-thru server was terribly rude and the coffee is bad. Don't bother. Hava Java is a drive-thru right next door with better coffee and pleasant servers. I've tried Green Owl several times, always mediocre coffee. I won't give them another try.

We just tried this restaurant for breakfast. When we had to order at the counter, I was a little concerned. We ordered eggs, sausage, country fried potatoes with wheat toast. They brought it out to our outside seating area. It was cooked perfectly and delicious!...More

Green Owl has THE best pretzel rolls anywhere. The coffee is great too. Highly recommend for lunch (amazing chicken soup, for one) or a quick coffee.

This is getting pretty disappointing. First, some things I've seen: don't use the drive-thru for anything but coffee, it takes forever; the pastry items in the front case have always been very very good; the service is kind and thoughtful, if slow. Now the bad...More

I had lunch here with friends. They let us move tables around to accommodate our crowd. They were very patient with us and let us take our time in ordering lunch. Most of the folks I went with opted for the wraps and seemed to...More

My girlfriends always choose the Green Owl for our coffee club. I think the coffee is good (but overpriced), and the food is good (but overpriced). After you put your order in, they deliver it to your table -- but at these prices, I feel...More
