Breakfast is amazing. The pastry case is mouth watering. They don't have as much gluten free items as I wish but they have a flourless chocolate molten lava cupcake that's to die for. It's always busy so be patient. It's well worth the wait. They're mocha cappuccino is really great.

The breakfast croissant I had was excellent. The pastries in the case looked amazing (note to self to come back and try them). But, it was the over-the-top strong, rich, dark coffee that had me truly overjoyed. Even got a cup to go so I could keep tasting it.

I had the quiche and a tiny piece of eggshell got wedged under my gum and ached for days until it worked its way out. The owner was RUDE and we saw one of her busboys relieve himself out back. Owner supplied no explanation about this (e.g. busboy could have been mentally disabled). The lack of explanation about this was... More

So glad we made this find, just looking for a light lunch. Friendly staff. Wonderful food. The "Salad de la Maison" was very fresh with great chorizo and the blue cheese was excellent. The artichoke bruschetta was outstanding. Iced tea is very refreshing and the coffee is French roasted and strong. Of course we left with some wonderful pastries. Total... More

This is a great place for breakfast or lunch. It's small, simple decor, with a creative menu. The sweets are to die for (they will probably kill me one day). Service is just about always very competent. Take some baked goods home from the counter when you leave - and then lie about having baked it!

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.
