Fun, creative place

We were the first people through the door when the cafe opened. Probably a dozen or so people followed us. Everyone had reservations. Service was leisurely but we were sitting in a great people watching window and enjoyed our long evening. It is difficult to chose from such a interesting menu. Such... read more

Definitely try to squeeze in at Cafe Pasqual's during your trip to Santa Fe. It's a very popular and very small cafe so a line is possible, make reservations if you want to go for dinner. Food is exquisite...don't miss this little gem.

We visited this Santa Fe institution for lunch and weren't disappointed. The restaurant was very small, so we felt we were eating with the people at the tables next to us. We loved the BLT (chile rubbed bacon, lettuce, tomato, cheese, green chiles, and mayo on toasted cornbread) and the simple side Kale salad. Food was fresh and delicious.

This place is so incredible, you need to generally make reservations at least a couple of days in advance. Good vegetarian options as well many tasty meat entrees. I loved the squash. It's my favorite special occasion restaurant in Santa fe. A real treat.

Pasqual's is amazing! They serve the best breakfast in Santa Fe! Be prepared to arrive early; otherwise, you will stand in line because EVERYONE flocks to Pasqual's. You will not be disappointed!

Breakfast at Cafe Pasqual's is required for any visit to Santa Fe. The atmosphere, service, and food are all Excellent! Seriously, everything on the menu sounds mout-watering. We had the Chile Rellenos con huevos. Rediculously delicious! I had to force myself to stop eating! Highly recommend!

Food was definitely worth the wait. Service is a little slow so don't be in a rush. Went for breakfast and it was one of the best ever. Fresingredients and interesting menu choices along with some traditional options.

Reservations are pretty much required at this small restaurant. Every single table was occupied the entire time we were there. The food was simply amazing. I think the chili relleno was the best I've ever had, as was the mole enchilada. Our service was a little disappointing though. Our waiter would disappear for a while multiple times. A different waiter... More

We had been looking around SF for New Mexican food, and Cafe Pasqual's was just where we needed to be. First, they took us in although we hadn't made any reservation (other restaurant, with half empty tables didn't make that extra leap for us). The menu is super varied and original; we really had a hard time choosing (only) one... More
