My fiance and I shared a special Brazilian offering, which was excellent. There were several small courses (tapas style), each paired with its own small taste of wine. Everything on the menu was delicious and made for a wonderfully memorable visit to Museum Hill. The service was excellent too and lots of customers made for a lively atmosphere.

Creative and healthy food choices. Host placed us in one of the least desirable tables due to sun and we moved ourselves. Did not ask our preference and came across as indifferent. This place should be earning all Very Good or higher ratings due to the location and the menu. Btw, waiter service was very good.

This cafe is one of my very favorites in Santa Fe. I've been surprised that there could be any negative reviews--maybe people who are used to eating at fast-food places. The ambience is what we so appreciate. You can have a leisurely, delicious lunch and not feel as if someone is hurrying you out so they can seat another customer.... More

The Museum Hill Cafe is a pleasant and convenient place to have lunch when visiting the wonderful museums on Museum Hill. However, although the menu is interesting and the food is good, the service is unbelievably bad. And it wasn't because they were understaffed, as they seemed to be last year when I visited in August. On this lunch visit,... More

We ate lunch here yesterday on the patio and spent more time swatting flies than chewing. They bothered us from arrival until departure. Our server was slow in coming to take our order, and our food also took a long time to arrive. I asked our server for a refill of my drink, and 15 minutes later, I was still... More

We had a lovely lunch here this week. The patio was huge and with plenty of shade, perfect in the hot summer sun. We had a wonderful burrito, possibly the best we've ever tasted and a great Greek salad. The sandwiches were well put together and the menu had something for everyone. A lovely casual atmosphere and great service.

At the museums when hunger hit. A grilled turkey and cheese sandwich hit the spot with great lemonade. We ate outside and experienced decent service. Sweet potato fries were delicious and crisp.

Last year we so enjoyed our lunch here, so we looked forward to going back this year. The food was good, but the wait was way too long. We waited several minutes for the host to greet and seat us. Again we had a long wait before we got our drinks. We were quite irritated and very hungry by the... More
