Stopped in for a late breakfast- almost 11am and was seated immediately. Had a wonderful crepe with smoked salmon and spinach- came with a side of fruit; and an amazing french toast - 2 slices with fruit packed in between them. Delicious fresh squeezed orange juice. We were tempted by the amazing pastries and selected a few for later- divine... More

We followed the reviews to this place for lunch while in Santa Fe. What a pleasure. Everything we ordered was wonderful. My only complaint was that the parking was lacking. If you like French food, or any food, you'll like this place.

Maybe it was what we ordered (smoked salmon salad and spinach quiche) but we were disappointed. Was there dressing on the salad? Was the quiche supposed to be layered instead of mixed together? It was a busy time of day, to be fair.

I eat here 3-4 times a week. When we walk in the door we are greeted by ALL the staff!! The food is great and the service is excellent. Even when there is a wait, the line moves quickly and you are seated. They make you feel at home in the restaurant. The pastries are wonderful and everything is freshly... More

Wonderful, flaky croissants! We circled a bit trying to figure out where to park (we were in a large pickup). There is a lot across the street that has signs posted that lead you to believe you cannot park there, but you can. Just plan on parking there & don't try to deal with the tiny lot behind the restaurant.

We had a great lunch here--very European--cozy and delicious--I'm sorry we live so far away. We had a delicious berry pie and sandwiches--all great--It is crowded but no problem getting a seat--because of limited parking we walked from the plaza and it didn't seem that far away. The owner was present and very appreciative.

My only regret was not sitting down to breakfast - it looked like a charming little spot for a nice sit-down breakfast. Nevertheless, grabbing some pastries to go is more than enough to experience how wonderful this place is. Three people were in pastry heaven, including two very picky eaters. Santa Fe advice for those staying in the area: get... More

We discovered this little gem a few years ago and often speak of it. Came back to Santa Fe this year and had breakfast here several times. It is always packed, and for good reason. The breakfasts are amazing from the coffee to flaky, yummy croissants to light and fluffy crepes. The service is friendly and fast. Love it!!

This was my second trip to Santa Fe, and my second trip to this restaurant. We went on a Saturday morning and it was very busy. The staff are all very friendly and welcoming. We did have to wait a few minutes for a table, but we got to look at the awesome display case while we waited! We ordered... More
