The ambiance of the shop is unrivaled in the Santa Fe area. This store is truly for kids! A beautiful mural captures the imaginations of children and spans the entire length of one wall.

A one-of-a-kind bench sits by the door. This piece of art was commissioned by the shop, made by a local artist, and put together with stuffed animals from the community.

The owners emphasize that they made this shop for the children and families of Santa Fe to give them a safe, healthy place to gather and eat.

Safety and cleanliness are a priority in this shop. Each employee is required to be COVID-19 vaccinated as the owners feel it is the best way to protect children who don’t yet have the option for the vaccine.  Dine in or sit in the small dining courtyard outside the shop.

There is plenty of indoor picnic table seating, that is structured in a food court style so you can try something from each vendor.
