My husband ordered the Cobb Salad and I had the Tostada Salad and they were both delicious. It was the perfect meal for a day of museum hopping. We also had the ice tea and they kept our glasses filled. The restaurant was quite busy but the service was excellent. Highly recommend.

Great food with mediocre service. My husband ordered a beer and it arrived frozen. When we pointed this out to our server, he seemed annoyed and not at all apologetic. The food, however, was delicious with generous portions. The view is amazing!

Once you are on Museum Hill, this is your only choice for food. The food itself was quite good. They offered a special menu to coordinate with a Brazilian exhibit in the Folk Art museum. We ordered for two and all of the selections were quite good and some unusual. That's the good news. The bad news is that our... More

This place has a captive audience since they are the only place on Museum Hill, so my expectations were reasonably low. The menu was a pleasant surprise. We had the special menu, Brasil Food Popular, which was a good choice, some dishes you wouldn't find anywhere else in town. It was all tasty and and well prepared and presented. However,... More

I'm always wary of museum restaurants, but this one surprised me. We had dinner and a concert there on a Friday night, a really nice experience, though not cheap. The food was beyond expectations -- salmon with mago salsa, steak and fries, bbq'd shrimp in prosciutto. Good quality ingredients and everything was tasty. Wonderful orange-almond cake for dessert. Friendly service... More

The restaurant is located between the Museum of International Folk Art and Museum of Indian Arts and Culture, so location, location, location. The setting is nice with both inside and outside seating. The man seating us was not very welcoming but our server was great. The menu is extensive and varied, so something for everyone. One of us had the... More

The Museum Hill Café literally and figuratively has one of the top locations in Santa Fe. It is on Museum Hill with a view toward the Jemez Mountains and one of the higher restaurant locations in the city. It is within feet of the Old Santa Fe Trail and close to four excellent museums allowing you good access to, and... More

Museum Hill Cafe is a good option for a break or meal on museum hill in Santa Fe. Attentive service and an eclectic menu fit right in with the four different museums on museum hill. A nice place to chill between museums.

What a lovely spot with an eclectic menu, fantastic coffee and friendly service. It does get busy here so my advice is to arrive early for lunch.

This restaurant is lovely; a nice break between the International Folk Art Museum and the Museum of Indian Arts and Culture. Great food -- the best salad I had in New Mexico (and I needed it after all those enchiladas) and the atmosphere was wonderful -- a great view and a classical guitarist playing.
