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.

Went here 2x while in Santa Fe -- once for dinner, and the next morning for breakfast. The dinner had excellent food but the service was dismal -- there were 6 of us -- everyone got their food at a different time and by that I mean even 10 minutes apart. And one dish was no longer hot and had... More

If you are in to very cramped quarters and very over priced meals then this is your place! Welcome to waiting on the street for a table and when your called being able to maybe sit in the community table which allows you too share a meal with 15 other strangers, also I'm 6'2" try going to the worlds smallest...

We have been to Cafe Pasqual's many times and each time it is equally delicious and incredibly tasty. Its is gem of a restaurant in the "city different".

Just steps off the plaza, so easy for tourists. Very nice choices with strong Santa Fe influences. Average downtown prices.

Casual if not funky restaurant in downtown Santa Fe. It has many healthy options, and dishes you don't normally find on Santa Fe menus. Tourists keep this cafe full so you have to get there outside of the normal meal times.
