Nice lunch with friends

We stopped in Santa Fe on our way to Albuquerque and had been told about C.M. by friends and decided to give it a try. I had the Baja wrap. My friends had the fish and chips and the spinach quiche. The fish and chips (garlic rosemary fries) were probably the favorite. The wrap is really yummy... read more

We've eaten here on a few of our trips to Santa Fe and we have definitely not been disappointed. Everything we have had has been delicious! It's a cute little bakery that can be hard to find. It's in a warehouse building. When you're following your navigation you'll think that your in the wrong location, but you're not. It's at... More

I was visiting Santa Fe with my husband. It was his birthday weekend get away. The bakery delivered my cake to the LaFonda restaurant for his surprise dinner with 9 friends. The cake was easily the best cake I've ever had in my life. Plus the staff was very nice and easy to work with.

I'm not sure why I have not reviewed this before because it is easily one of our favorites and we have been here many times over the past 8 years. We like to sit in the room with a window in front of the bakery and watch how they make the wonderful desserts and pastries. Their breakfast burritos and eggs... More

All meals here are great, but breakfast is a very special treat. I always want to try something different, but keep going back to their eggs benedict. They have a trio of three different topping if you want something different, but I stick to the traditional because I get a beautiful slab of ham instead of the little piece of... More

Wonderful breakfast while watching the bakers make pastries. It was a little difficult to find but once we did it was a "gem" of a find!!!

This is a nice, tasty place for lunch and they have good variety. The attraction is watching the workers make pastries in a large window looking into the kitchen. Since that's not something you get to watch every day, it's worth a few extra bucks, but if you were to do it frequently, you might dent your budget. Very busy... More

I really enjoyed my lunch - lots of vegetarian options - nice folks and a fun place - you can watch them make their pastries through a large window.

The menu is extensive but costly for what is served. Had the onion soup and half sandwhich. Onion soup had a sorry piece of bread with not much cheese and was very thin with little taste.
