We visited the Five and Dime General Store while in Santa Fe on vacation. We had seen them on TV and thought we would drop in and try the frito pie . While the store has tons of fun, stuff and even toiletries, etc...I don't get the hype about their frito pie. I understand that if you're looking for a... More

This store has everything. I collect magnets and I was able to find the exact one I was looking for. It is sometimes over priced on certain things, like $5 for a toothbrush but its great for souvenirs.

While I'm not sure I'd atually advocate "Eating' here...(really more of a snack bar)...You'll find the coolest, most colorful, and funnest collection of souvenirs in the city. And The Bonus.... You'll get to hear the latest, exciting social and community news from the staff, as you wait inline to check-out...Awesome.

A very useful store, next to the Plaza. You can find there a lot of small, necessary things: medicines, sandwiches, ice cream, yogurt, a wide range of souvenirs, etc. at affordable prices.

As with most trips, you always seem to need something once you get to your destination. It was nice to have this place so available in downtown Santa Fe. It has a limited inventory & what I think was a small food service (ice cream & such) in the back. I just needed a few things this trip & fortunately,... More

This is the quintessential stop of cheap tourist stuff, from t-shirts, post cards, to New Mexico memoribilia. and gag gifts. This is a fun store to just look around and most likely, you will find something you just can't resist. This is also the home of the famous Santa Fe Frito Pie (an open bag of Fritos to which is...

Unique place in the plaza and worth at least a few minutes to walk around and browse. You'll probably come away with at least some purchase as lots of unique items here.

This is a great local store to take visitors so they can fill their bags with inexpensive Santa Fe/NM goodies. My friends from Germany filled 2 bags of things to take back for gifts. Always fun to to stop here.
