Agree with the general consensus here that the food is varied and very good. But also overly expensive. Probably will try some comparable restaurants in the area before going making a return visit.

This is such a happy place...the decor just makes you happy...but the food will too! This place is very tiny...they need to expand...the service was timely, the people friendly, and they had some of the best Yucatan chicken salad and mole chicken enchiladas we have ever had, and we travel the Yucatan at least twice a year. It is not... More

We were there right at 5:30 p.m and were seated at a table for four although we were only two. The wait staff was professional, the cafe filling up fast with later guests being turned away. Our dinners were superb, the wine excellent and this small place is still as special a treat as ever - will definitely want to... More

Though it had been eight years between visits, we found Cafe Pasqual's still had its eclectic, welcoming vibe. I enjoyed a banana leaf-wrapped pork entree while my dining companions raved about the quinoa burgers (and later down-loaded the recipe). With a varied menu, well-priced drinks, Cafe Pasqual occupies its corner with practiced panache and enduring eccentricity.

We enjoyed our breakfasr here. It was walking distance to a lot of the sites. It was a wonderful spot to visit the area. Santa Fe around Christmas is a must. We will definitely go back.

Quesadilla was so-so and by far highest priced I ever paid. Sure not worth long wait and bad service. Weirdest thing the way the cocky staff kept watching us. Guess they wanted us to hurry and leave so they could herd in more folks waiting. I've never seen such small restrooms in a place that's hyped to be nice, and... More

We love this little place. Need to make reservations at least a week in advance to get the seating time that you want..that just means that it is really good. We have made this our first stop when we arrive in Santa Fe for almost two decades.

Cafe Pasqual's is by far one of the best spots for dining in Santa Fe. Reservations a must for dinner. Food is beautifully prepared, creative, and excellently presented. Breakfast is the best in town.

Cafe Pasqual's was recommended to us by several different friends. It did not disappoint! We went for a weekday breakfast and we had no wait at all. (People told us to expect a wait out the door) Very inventive menu but those not too adventurous will have plenty to eat as well.Service was perfect. We sat at a round communal... More

Cafe Pasqual's is a must for those visiting Santa Fe. Expect at least a 30 minute wait when planning to dine in. All of the dishes we've had over the years have been excellent, with unique touches. The service has even gotten more outstanding over the past few years with processes to help serve you faster. Sit at the community... More
