The Ancient Way Cafe is a small, rustic, unique little cafe in the small village of El Morro, NM. It is known far and wide as a friendly place to relax and enjoy a delicious meal and interesting conversation with the locals, surrounded by magnificent natural beauty. Their focus is to buy as locally as possible, supporting friends and neighbors. We live quite rurally so community development is vital. We create pies made from scratch with fresh fruit - our crusts are out of this world! The Ancient Way Cafe serves a different Gourmet Dinner Special every Friday and Saturday evening.  The Gourmet Dinner Specials are especially popular, and require reservations before an evening of entertainment across the highway at the Old School Gallery. Most of the food is made on the premises. Located one mile east of El Morro National Monument, we attract many travelers. Friendly people, a gorgeous setting, and good food makes the Ancient Way Cafe a pleasant and unique stop along your journey. Visitors are made to feel very welcome, so stop by anytime!
