The tastes and flavors of Santa Fe derive from Puebla, Mexico where home cooked food simmers for hours and brings families and communities together. Abuelita Cardoso passed on her traditional recipes to us and we invite you to share them with your friends and loved ones.

At Santa Fe we have been serving up delicious Mexican food for over 20 years. After studying the art of the ‘taqueria” in San Francisco, Danny Cardoso opened the first authentic taqueria in Portland
using his mother’s recipes.

This style of restaurant is perfect for a quick bite on the go all the while maintaining the freshest ingredients and slow cooked meats with out any additives or preservatives. Customers can choose 
any item on the menu and customize their meal as its being made. We offer many vegan, vegetarian and gluten free options. Of course the friendly cooks are always available with their suggestions!

What goes better with Mexican food than an authentic margarita? Next door at La Cantina appropriately dubbed “The Office”, you can find a full bar including margaritas made with fresh lime and orange juice as well as a full cocktail menu featuring items such as our Ginger Lemondrop & Michelada.  

Take your margarita and Plato con Carne (Suggestion: Chile Verde Chicken) outside to enjoy the Oregon summer and the people watching on popular 23rd Av.
