This lovely French bakery/café dishes up pastries, quiches and other delights...just don't try the croissants if you're accustomed to flaky, buttery things. The flavor of the almond croissant was nice, but there was no layering of butter and flour. Also sampled were madelines (lovely), Danish (beautiful and tasty) and brioche (fabulous)! At 9AM on a Wednesday morning the parking lot... More

This is one of my favorite places to go for breakfast...I love the granola... The croque Monsieur...croque Madame...the cafe latte. It's always crowded...always loud...but it's also always good!

Great onion soup and pastries - but the fries and homemade chips were disappointing.. but it is still worth going. The fries were unevenly cooked and the chips were limp. And the salad was ok..

This place is simply excellent, every time. The baked goods seem right out of France. Everything is fresh because it all sells every single day. The dining area is quaint but small. There is always a happy ambience and joyful crowd waiting to be seated! Any small frustration with parking or seating will melt away once you are seated and... More

We tried eating here 3 times, but each time the line was too long for our bellies. We decided the fourth time to wake up early and beat the crowd. So happy we did! This place is simply amazing and everyone waiting knows it's worth the wait. We ordered breakfast and their baked goods are top quality deliciousness. My favorite... More

We live an hour and a half away from this restaurant, yet, we go there at least once every two weeks. They make THE BEST French pastries you will ever have outside of France. The pastries, truffles and tarts are my favorites, with flaky crusted baguettes, fruit tarts covered with fresh blueberries, raspberries, and strawberries, and OMG the chocolate truffles... More

It is true this place has very little parking. It is within walking distance of the plaza, though, and worth the hike. You will find authentic French pastries and food. We had two breakfasts here and both were delicious. Get the fresh squeezed orange juice.

What a delightful addition Clafoutis has made to the Santa Fe scene. Delicious, authentic French cuisine, open for breakfast and lunch, all fresh salads, entrees, sandwiches, soups made to order. Always busy, but never too long a wait as this place turns over quickly! Helpful and friendly staff, always welcoming and glad to see you. There is nothing that I... More

OMG this is the best French bakery outside Paris. Run by French pastry chefs everything is authentic and delicious there is always a queue for breakfast and lunch as well as the bakery and take away items. Try their quiche especially the Green Chile and Bacon a Santa Fe twist in the quiche Lorraine. The tarts are fabulous as are... More
