At Café Mimosa, we have created a stylish, welcoming space for our guests to gather and be nourished by creative, inspired cuisine, lovingly prepared.
Our values are reflected in our furnishings made from reclaimed wood and metal as well in the sustainable, locally-sourced ingredients used in the kitchen whenever possible. We pay close attention to the smallest of details that reflect who we are and what we believe in. An inviting communal table is a physical manifestation of our commitment to community and connection.
This is a place to share a meal with a friend, meet someone new, or simply relax and enjoy great food and good vibes. It’s our mission to please you with delicious, healthy food in an atmosphere that celebrates creativity and originality.
We serve brunch daily, the best of all worlds, in our opinion — classic egg dishes, market fresh salads and soups, open-faced toasts, and seasonal entrée specials with a global flair.
And, of course, our craft mimosas are made with premium sparkling wine and fresh-squeezed juices.
"Come taste our epicurean delights while soaking in the unique, laid back spirit of Santa Fe"
"Growing up, I was inspired by how food could unite family and make people happy"
Born and raised in Algeria on the coast of the Mediterranean, chef Alex’s Hadidi’s appreciation of food and cooking began early in the kitchen of his mother and her sister, “Tata Malika,” both talented home cooks.
“Growing up, I observed how food united family and made people happy,” Alex explains. He later found himself hosting popular brunches at his own place during college. It was then when he discovered he had a flair for cooking. In 1996, he packed up his Buick and left Minneapolis for New York City to study at the French Culinary Institute.
What followed was two decades of cooking in 4-star kitchens across New York, including Robert DeNiro’s Tribeca Grill, Fresco by Scotto, Aqua Grill, and a stint as Executive Chef at The Iridium. He later relocated to Atlanta where he joined the faculty at Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts, teaching French culinary technique and regional American cuisine.
Alex arrived in Santa Fe in 2012 where he taught hands-on and demonstration classes at the Santa Fe School of Cooking. For the past five years, he has worked as a private chef for a family in Santa Fe.
Now, he is thrilled to open Cafe Mimosa in Santa Fe, where he continues to unite people and make them smile over plates of delicious, healthy food in a stunning, stylish space.
