I grew up first on Franklin St.(Westsiders) and then on the Eastside off of Camino Monte Sol. My friend Rosie and I would walk to school at St. Francis and eventually to Loretto. Try letting your kids do that distance alone today. We loved to shop at Bell's, Sweetbriars, Taicherts, Woolworths (frito pies & cherry lime cokes), Dunlaps. Higher-end stores were cool too: La Tienda, El Pavon, Old Mexico Shop, the Guarantee. I loved to eat and hang out at Twin Cronies, Zooks, Ken's Pharmacy, Ingrams, Fred's Drive-In. Go to movies at Lensic, El Paseo, Yucca Drive-In. Wouldn't change growing up in Santa Fe for anything!

It's really strange that I, too, have been thinking about what it was like growing up in Santa Fe. We were really lucky.

Very lucky , so many wonderful memories, having a chocolate shake at Free Frazer's , after a movie at the Lensic having a burger at the Canton: while attending mid high, walking over and having a twin cronie (coronie)?, And growing up on Galisteo St. was able to walk to fiestas, school (Harrington) Cathedral, Swimming Pool, Bowling alley, wow loved it!!

Steve, no the Plaza cafe was always that and was owned by my uncle and cousin and one other Greek, Dan Razatos. the Mayflower was kitty corner on the south side of the Plaza three doors east of FW Woolworth and was owned, initially by my father and uncle after wwII My father brought in a partner who eventually owned "Evangellos" on the sight of the old Faith Cafe.
My great grandfather Robert Narvaiz owned the Mayflower Cafe and ran the KC Housea, and owned the Big Chief Restuarant in Santa Fe

El Nido&Maria Benitez to the north in Tesuque, the Crazy Frenchman with his restaurant across from the Opera to the north; Bourbon&Blues to the south on Cerrillos, The Bob Cat Bite on 40 and The Depot in Lamy to the east, Josie's green chile rellenos and ice boxcake downtown.

The Twin Cronies was on Water St. maybe 50 feet west of La Fonda. Their specialty was a hot dog, cut in half and served on a hamburger bun smothered in a very mild red chile meat sauce (or maybe spaghetti sauce) with mustard. Scrumptious!
I loved those twin cronies. Wish I could find the recipe for them and I'd make them myself at home. Used to eat them at the bus depot all the time for lunch.
