We heard about this top rated place and stopped on our way back from visiting the Petroglyphs. We were greeted with some free fresh biscochito cookies. Chocolate was our favorite. We dined at one of the few tables inside, but outside seating was also available, along with table umbrella if you wish. Noticed several customers ordering take out, both food... More

We enjoyed the bakery so much, the owner is a old veteran who visited bakeries all over the world. He offers a free cookie to every customer. This place is an open kitchen, and all the bakery items are fresh. Pizzas are served here too, although i was here in the morning. Such a nice place, we loved it. SO... More

After seeing this panaderia spotlighted on Food Network's DDD, we knew we had to stop in en-route to Santa Fe. A free biscochito awaits each patron; that first delicious buttery cookie will not be your last! There are several varieties of the traditional New Mexican cookie: they are all winners. They also have a wide variety of empanada flavors. We... More

I enjoy taking treats to work from Golden Crown Panaderia. My co-workers enjoy the variety of baked New Mexican treats without having to do the work.

Delicious sweet empanadas, subtly light and sweet pecan bread, great espresso. Very relaxed staff, small inside seating area, large outside seating, they bring food to you if they need to prepare, wish we had room/time for pizza. Staff knew clients by name, as clients knew staffs'. Wish we lived closer.

Saw that Golden Crown made it to #1 on the Trip Advisor list so decided to look into this place more. Thought they were just a bakery but once I went to their website I realized they had sandwiches and pizza aside from the bakery items. Had been craving a good pizza for a while so thought we should give... More

Okay, we read all the rave reviews on TA and had to try it. We didn't have time for lunch but we saw the sandwhiches and wings which looked amazing. Really, the wings looked great - are they grilled? Anyway, I'll just mention what we actually ate. We bought three loaves of the chilie bread. One we overnighted to my... More

Happy that a local restrauant owner had made a good name for himself with a good business. Pizza is great, could use more toppings at times but otherwise good. The empanadas and cookies are excellent

When walking in the door you are immediately greeted and offered a Biscochito, it a crisp buttery (I believe Lard, but that's OK with me), sugary and cinnamony cookie. The staff couldn't have been nicer offering a history of Golden Crown Panaderia Bakery. We ordered several of the Fruit Empanada's to have at our room, they are light and not... More

We had a wonderful Golden Crown Pizza on thin crust chili bread. They have outside seating in the sunshine. Staff was so friendly and helpful. Fruit Empanadas were so tasty, not too sweet, just right. What a great lunch. Don't miss this wonderful eatery.
