El Noa Noa Mexican Restaurant

722 Santa Fe Drive Denver, CO 80204 | Central Denver | 303-623-9968

Location Description:

El Noa Noa is a longtime neighborhood favorite that's survived not only the encroaching trade of the Santa Fe Arts District, but being located right next door to El Taco de Mexico, Denver's most authentic Mexican lunch-counter taqueria. But El Noa Noa has charms of its own: breakfast served all day, a beautiful shaded patio (complete with a waterfall and occasional wandering mariachis), comfortable dining areas and a big menu full of can't-miss dishes.
