Santa Fe and its visitors have already latched on to Iconik as a go-to for coffee, hanging out and clicking away on laptops, but this year's expanded menu means it's also three meals a day of creative cuisine. For lunch or dinner, the Workman Sliders ($9) are something like a cross between everything that's good about White Castle and a teeny tiny gyro. Three fried lamb patties topped with a creamy coleslaw and garnished with sauteed shishito peppers are good for sharing, but also for hoarding. For breakfast or brunch, choose one of the house-made bagels and build your own combo ($3.50). Our fave is smothered in cream cheese and topped with sauteed vegetables (that adds another $1.50). This thing is literally a hot mess, and it's fingerlicking good. A selection of fresh-baked pastries and cookies rounds out any meal, and pour-over coffee that's sourced from all over the world is, of course, what keeps the doors open. While the wood-draped interior and its funky collection of chairs, couches and bancos make for a cozy, lively interior space, a roomy patio is another hip seating option. Counter service also means no negotiating with the waitstaff—just good conversation or solo solace.
