The Don Gaspar Inn is located just a short walk from the Santa Fe Plaza...and on or just off of Don Gaspar Avenue are some of the favorite local spots to dine. Del Charro, Pasqual's, Coyote Cafe - just to name a few. For those who want to try authentic New Mexican cuisine in a casual atmosphere, Blue Corn Cafe and Brewery http://www.bluecorncafe.com/ is a perfect choice. Located on the corner of Water and Galisteo Streets, Blue Corn has been a favorite place for guests of Don Gaspar who want to enjoy an evening or afternoon walk to the Plaza. Blue Corn offers an outstanding selection of house crafted beer as well as pub style food and house specialty Mexican influenced creations like a Green Chili Cheeseburger and New Mexican Shepard's Pie.
