We were completely underwhelmed with our dining experience at Cafe Pasquals. Our reservation was made weeks in advance yet we were seated at a less than desirable location (in a corner when there was a large table in the middle of the restaurant).

We always make time for Cafe Pasqual's when we're in Santa Fe. The food is very good, and so is the people watching. It's a place where locals and out-of-towners mix. It's a small restaurant, so you're close to your neighbors, whether you're sitting at the communal table or elsewhere. The decor is colorful: hanging paper cutouts and beautiful paintings.... More

OK, I admit it, we went back here 3 times in the 4 days we were in Santa Fe. The food has a lot of South American mixed in with the New Mexican. I liked the unusual flavors and the fun atmosphere. If you have room for dessert, the cookie plate is generous and varied. I preferred the dinner menu... More

We stayed in Santa Fe for 4 nights and ate breakfast at Café Pasqual's two mornings it was that good. There is always a bit of a wait (outside) but we didn't mind because our party of 6 had 6 great breakfasts. They do not take reservations but you can sit at a community table if you are one or...

For all that is the glory of northern New Mexico - chilis, people, art and community - these are the reasons I have adored Pasqual's for so many years! The food actually gets better with time - a strong emphasis on fresh ingredients and traditional flavors. Service is always a bit funky - hallelujah - and we always have a... More

Pasqual's is a good restaurant with a fun, convivial atmosphere. They focus on using organic and locally sourced ingredients. But the 3 times I've been there (for dinner), I was very underwhelmed by the food - and a little "whelmed" at the prices. It is not inexpensive. I know a lot of people like to go here for breakfast. Maybe... More

We stopped by here on a quiet Sunday night when many other restaurants were closed and ordered food to go (we had dogs with us). We tried the mole enchiladas, vegetarian enchiladas, and scallops appetizer...everything was delicious although it was a little pricey!

The food was tasty and the wait staff was prompt and attentive. Prices are very high. It is very popular and you will need reservations for an evening meal. An 8am breakfast visit did not require a reservation.

If you are looking for the best New Mexican style breakfast in town, this is the place. Yes, it's small. Yes, there's going to be a wait for a table. And, YES, it's the best breakfast in Santa Fe! We have been to Santa Fe four times, and every time we plan one day around having breakfast at Cafe Pasqual's.... More
