The Swiss Bistro Bakery does a great job with scrumptious croissants and other baked goods. Some of the pastries are similar to what one finds in a pastry shop in Switzerland. There are too many non-Swiss items on the menu and not enough typical Swiss ones, so the place loses some of its identity. That being said, I would return... More

I have been here several times and my favorite thing to order are the crepes. The specials offered at lunch time have often been very good yet not 100% to my liking. My dining companions have been pleased with the food over all. If the menu at the door appeals to you, by all means go inside.

We had a really good experience here. Our waiter was gracious, unobtrusive and helpful. We had the lemon ricotta crepes, the sausage, and crepe with ham, gruyere and bechemel sauce. Very light, tasty, and better than ordinary breakfast spot. The coffee was the best of our trip. We ate indoors, but they have outdoor seating too. Would love to return... More

We had a very late lunch and ordered the vegetable crepe and the BLT. Both were outstanding! The service started a little slowly, but we were able to make our train connection. We will definitely go there again!

We were a group of 8 during a time the restaurant was practically empty. Very slow service. We ordered a variety of dishes--pizzas had no flavor; burger came wrapped in a tortilla (not explained on the menu, again little flavor. We left half the food and server didn't even ask if we wanted boxes to take the remainder home. I... More

This place was good indeed, but not great service. Me and my friend had to sit and wait for about 20 minutes just to get a plate of fruit. Then we sat for about another 30 minutes to get refills and the waiters attention to ask for our check. I wouldn't recommend going unless you have quite some time on... More

Went here for dinner with a party of four. Sat outside in a pleasant patio with a live jazz trio performing. The food was just okay. Crepes and vegetarian lasagna all flavorless. The service left much to be desired. Slow even by Santa Fe standards. Had to ask repeatedly for such basics as water, salt, silverware. Paying the check was... More

Stopped in for lattes and pastries for the road, as had walked past it many times and it looked cute. Totally average pastries, not very impressive, and weak weak lattes. Service was unorganized and slow.

Delicious breakfast and coffee, kind service, and you MUST get a pastry before leaving! Best spot downtown to grab a quick snack.

We got sandwiches here for the drive home. Very tasty! They also had great live jazz here on Saturday night.
