Small and incredible

We ate breakfast and dinner here whole in Santa Fe. It's beyond wonderful. Our waitstaff, Megan was very attentive and knowledgable about the menu. In many restaurants I struggle to find something that sounds good. Here, everything sounded good! If crop fed and lively isn't your thing, it's not... read more

if I could have one last meal on this earth it would be at Cafe Pasqual. The pigs on a date was a delicious appetizer; the sampler platter was all wonderful - the best chile rellenos ever - and the pie. Oh the pie. Beyond description!

TIP: make reservations well in advance, specially for dinner. They do serve breakfast and lunch! I enjoyed this place very much, although small, its comfortable and friendly. The food was very good, fresh, hot, with all the right flavors.

Headline - I was not as enamored as most of the reviews I have read. Stopped in for breakfast as Pasqual's is billed as having very authentic New Mexican fare and a "must eat" tag as evidenced by the line awaiting opening that morning. By the time I walked in there were only seats at the community table left. Being... More

We come here every single time we visit Santa Fe and love it. The food is always delicious and the staff is always friendly - even during peak hours. However, we must be getting old because we're just not as excited to wait for so long for a table anymore. It's always packed and it's absolutely worth the reputation, but... More

We did Brunch and a little lunch here. The food was great with a really subtle perfect red chile sauce. ( I had to go back for lunch to get more). Service was friendly and jovial. Expect a wait and a higher than average bill (organic) but it was one of the better meals we had in Santa Fe.

We went there for breakfast. I ordered the french toast "corn flake" special and my wife split the huevos motulenos with another in our party. Both were delicious. We were served right away. The atmosphere is quite unique. An arty, funky, energetic place. It would be our hang out if we lived there.

Funky, casual, comfortable environment. In the heart of downtown Santa Fe. One of my favorite restaurants!

Ok this place was phenomenal and I don't even like Mexican food. The chile relleno was to die for. We ended up going 3 times

Had a lovely lunch at Café Pasqual's. The Barbacoa lamb tacos were delicious, served with a side of cactus and tomato (gorgeous, real tomatoes!) salad, was very satisfying. I love the ambiance here. The waiters and waitresses seemed to LOVE what they do. I was a solo eater, yet was able to sit at a larger table for four (rather... More
