Pasquals, just one block off the Plaza in Santa Fe, is a fun, colorful place, with reasonably priced, good tasting food, and very attentive service. It's family friendly (what kids don't like good Mexican food.) A very enjoyable experience after a lot of walking around the old town.

Recommended by our hotel and we didn't regret going. Arrived early to secure a table and we're seated immediately. All the service we received was excellent--they did not miss a step. In fact, when my husband ordered coffee, one of the staff members was standing by to see if I would also order and had two spoons at the ready... More

The best part of Cafe Pasqual's for me was the decor. I loved all the art everywhere, including the furniture. Food was fine. Good, actually. But not bowl-me-over "wow." The food seemed priced reasonably, but the drink prices were out-of-sync high, I thought. We lucked out and arrived for a late lunch mid-week, so no wait. Yay!

If you're visiting Santa Fe, then you absolutely must plan for at least one breakfast at Cafe Pasquales'. Just make your way to this Santa Fe icon, walk inside and give them your name, then go back outside prepared to wait for 30 or more minutes. Believe me, the time passes quickly, at least one of your party can go... More

The restaurant has a great atmosphere, specifically the community table. The location is centrally located in the plaza area of Santa Fe. The food is good, but too expensive for what is received.

We got there early for breakfast and sat first at the community table and got our food last. No one checked on us, even after others received their food and we asked about ours. A lot of hype for breakfast. The food was ok, I'd rather go to the quaint Palacio around the corner.

A small cafe with great big flavorful food. We got a last minute reservation for dinner and were not sure what to expect. This New Mexican dinning experience was great. Perhaps a bit on the pricey side but not out of line with others in the area. Food is from certified organic farmers and producers, No GMO, and they offer... More

O.K. So it doesn't look like much from the outside but once you are inside, the energy picks up just from the beautiful murals, decorations and frenzy of the staff and patrons. It is a comfortable energy that awakens your senses and relaxes at the same time. And the food..... The chicken sandwich on corn bread has the most wonderful... More

The owners have perfected their unique blend of local Northern New Mexican dishes and Central American pleasers. All food is locally sourced and organic where possible which makes things a bit expensive but quite delicious. A local hang out that has survived for decades and that says a lot for Santa Fe where restaurants come and go like the seasons.
