Santa Fe Cafe was another favorite split-lunch spot. My mom and I would order a chicken quesadilla and two drinks. It was just the right amount of food for each of us. For some reason there are two types of seating in the cafe: one section has booths with laminate tables and teal-colored cushions; the other section has wooden chairs and lace-covered tables with protective glass (for easy clean-up). We tended to sit in the latter section probably because it’s closer to the windows. Next door is a pet store, and we enjoyed watching the owner’s cats wander along the sidewalk.

The Santa Fe Cafe is no longer in business. A breakfast spot took its place. The pet store is still there though, and I still enjoy watching all the animals whenever I'm in the area.
I completed this photo project from May 2009 to May 2010. Six years later, I'm reposting the series with additional thoughts. Here's what I wrote about it when I started.
