First Review by KimMiles

More vegetarian than vegan - Edit

Old world feel, nice staff and eating options are limited for vegetarians, very limited if you don't eat cheese. Beans are lard-free, portions are huge, food is good.

Pros: Friendly, warm environment, Huge portions, Tasty food

Cons: Very limited vegan food

Beautiful space - Edit

As the previous reviewer mentioned, the mostly-real-adobe building is beautiful.

As for the food, maybe brunch is the wrong time to come: There were only three vegan-friendly options on my visit, but if they add more it will be a good option for veg*ns who are dining with carnivorous friends or family.

Pros: Beautiful mostly-natural building

Cons: very limited vegan options

Great New Vegan Options at Old Martina's Hall - Edit

Martina's recently opened in a beautifully renovated historic building, which was once known as "Old Martinez Hall." Martina Gebhardt, the owner, has spared no expense in reviving this wonderful space. It's truly one of the most beautiful old adobe structures in the area. Reviews from all my friends give it a big thumbs up in all areas. Good food, good service, good prices, beer and wine, a gorgeously decadent dessert case, and a generally wonderful new place to hang out at the south end of town.

What I'm most pleased with are the clearly marked raw, vegan, and vegetarian items on the menu. This is a big step for a Taos business, and one that not many bother to take, so I plan to become a regular!

On our first visit, our server was more than happy to ferry our questions to the chef, and we were able to piece together two delightful vegan meals. The breakfast burrito was filled with potatoes, black beans, and vegetables, and smothered with a delicious green chile. The veggie burger was house-made, and served on a gluten free bun, with sautéed veggies in place of the cheese.

The following week we went for lunch, and ordered straight off the menu. We had the Walnut Pesto Organic Zucchini Spiral Salad ($8.75), and the Raw Marinated Miso Portabella Mushroom Salad ($8.75), along with a side order of black beans, potatoes, and green chile ($5.50). Again the service was attentive, and the food beautifully presented and delicious. The manager assured us that there are plans to add to the vegan menu, as well as to open for dinner and events soon.

Martina's is the perfect place to go with a mixed group of eaters. They're eager to make everyone happy, and so far, they're doing a great job. They're open for breakfast and lunch now, and will soon be open for dinner and events too. We're looking forward to more from Martina's!

Pros: vegan options, good food, good prices
