This is a small restaurant, noted for breakfasts, but the lunch was great. We were seated at a community table; no not a family style meal, but meeting very nice people in a very nice place.

We are never disappointed when we eat Cafe Pasqual! The food is delicious and the service impeccable. A thoroughly enjoyable experience. Make sure to make a reservation in advance or you probably won't get in.

This is a must! We actually ate here twice during our 2-day stay, once for lunch at the communal table and once for breakfast at a private table. Enjoyed the smoked trout hash, enchiladas, ham steak, eggs, french toast & iced coffee! Did not have to wait for late lunch. For Sunday breakfast, I suggest arriving early for opening at... More

We are used to waiting to get into Pasqual's, but we have historically been in Sante Fe for Indian Market. We were just there mid-July and still had to wait BUT it is always worth it. Try the yoghurt with fruit, always have fresh squeezed juice and great coffeel

We arrived in Santa Fe with no dinner reservation, expecting a wait. One our way to the Plaza, my wife called Pasqual's and was informed we could get a seat at the "community table". A bit hesitant, we agreed, and arrived just a few minutes later to be immediately seated at a table for 10, in two of the remaining... More

Located right off the square this festive little spot serves great chicken mole enchiladas, chile relleno, and corn pancakes wrapped around veggies (squash, beets, cauliflower). I recommend the sampler plate. The walls have Chagall-like murals and the ceiling is festooned with paper flags. Desserts were awesome, especially the tres leches cake and the dessert sample with mint ice cream that... More

The food quality, portions, and variety was exceptional. Our service was perfect, with good attention without feeling rushed. There is a comfortable atmosphere with energy, yet an ambient noise level that allows you to have conversation. The prices are moderately high but the value is there. If you're coming for dinner, make a reservation.

We discovered the southwestern fare at Pasqual's on our first trip to Santa Fe and now we go there at least one time on every trip. The organic food is delicious and the service is friendly and prompt. To avoid the lines, we go for breakfast and arrive early.

Everything we ate was delciious and the service was excellent. The shredded pork in traditional banana leaf was spicy yet delectable.
