During our Abiquiu trip, we took a drive through El Rito, New Mexico, and on to Ojo Caliente. Ojo Caliente is another small New Mexico town which is well known for its Mineral Springs Resort & Spa. Originally, we were going to eat lunch at the spa restaurant, but once we arrived and saw how crazy, busy the place was we decided to go elsewhere. We were looking for something a lot more laid back, which was the general theme of our vacation. So we drove back to the main road where we saw a sleepy looking cafe called the Mesa Vista Cafe.
