Great food. I went to the restaurant without a reservation as a solo traveler. I sat at the community table and talked to other travelers and enjoyed a wonderful meal.

Enjoyed our meal at Cafe Pasqual's. Three of us for lunch and each enjoyed their choice. Fresh flavors, delightful small restaurant with pleasant service staff. Highly recommend even when you have a long wait. The restaurant deserves the high ratings on TripAdvisor! Tip - Since they do not take reservations we asked to be placed on the list for 1:00,...

This funky little restaurant was one of our favorites on our recent Santa Fe visit. Small and intimate with a definite local vibe they deliver delicious food accompanied by a well thought out wine list with great values. This should be on you don't miss list when you visit. p.s. be sure to make reservations!

Great food. Breakfast lunch or dinner. However very small space. Not a great atmosphere. Food is clean and healthy. Great fresh meals. Salmon burritos. Amazing breakfast is my favorite.

We refered to trip advisor for brunch/breakfast venues in Santa Fe and we now can see why it is highly recommended. I had the corn beef hash - it was fresh, great tastes and the poach eggs were done to my liking. The bread that came with it was nice and sweet! My husband got the same dish, but got... More

Came here based on recommendations from the locals, as well as after reading great reviews online. This definitely is a place where you have to get there early. We got there at 7:40 (they open at 8am) and there was already a line of about 15 people waiting outside. At 8, the restaurant opened promptly and we were luckly to... More
