We stopped in to the Museum Hill Cafe while traveling through Santa Fe. The service was bad, the pie was stale and overall the whole experience was unpleasant.

Stopped for lunch here after visiting these incredible museums. Service is sketchy. Don't be in a hurry here. The burrito I ordered was outstanding. My first. Enough for two meals.

I ate at the Museum Hill Cafe for lunch today. I ordered the Patty Melt sandwich. It was very tasty with a large amount of meat , cooked just the way I wanted it. The regular fries were crispy and flavorful. The service was attentive without being intrusive. My friends both had the small cup of tomato soup and half... More

After reading the positive reviews I was so anxious to treat my family to a late lunch at the Museum Hill Café. What a terrible experience from beginning to end. It took forever to get seated even though there were empty tables. They were short-staffed and had kitchen help working as servers. Our server was a nice enough chap, but... More

We specifically visited this restaurant based on reviews for lunch on a Thursday. We did not plan to visit the museums. The restaurant was about half full when we arrived at 1. We were seated quite quickly and were not in a hurry. There was a single waiter for the whole place. It took a bit to get menus, and... More

For all our visits to Santa Fe, my wife and I had never made it to Museum Hill. When we visited just before Christmas, we showed up on the first day the Museums were open (wait for a later review). After visiting the Native American museum, we timed our departure to make a visit to the café timely. I had... More

The cafe is situated with nice views. The menu is quite large but the food is so- so. The service is very friendly.

The cafe is located literally a stone's throw from both the Indian Cultural Museum and the International Folk Art Museum, and less than a mile from three other museums. But it is not the typical museum cafe. The food is original and affordable, the atmosphere pleasant, and the service efficient. It is the ideal spot to take a break from... More

This cafe is on museum hill, so you can visit the museums, take a break to eat, and then view the museums some more. It was quite busy on a Saturday noon, mainly with older people. The menu is a bit pricey and they also serve wine, not exactly the kind of place that small children would enjoy. We had... More
