While the chocolate pastries are amazing, we decided to branch out and try lunch there. Good decision! The lunch menu is huge (The breakfast menu looked great too!) and the dishes were well prepared and very satisfying. We had the smoked salmon on bialy, the Galisteo grilled chicken sandwich with chipotle mayo, and a small plate of their skillet potatoes.... More

I have had lunch here and breakfast. I was not disappointed with either, but the breakfast was memorable. The Santa Fe Tofu Scramble is amazing; in fact just thinking about it is making my mouth water. The desserts that I've tried have all been delicious, which is what you should expect from a place with chocolate in its name. The... More

Couldn't do breakfast, but we swung back to try their croissants, they were sad and dry. We purchased their poppy lemon cookie, sugar cookie and peanut butter cookie, sad and dry! I also purchased their brownies for later that day, they were packaged in a plastic seal, but when opened, they also were sad and dry! Based on those experiences,... More

On my way out of town, if I get BBQ to take home I stop by here to get sourdough bread to go with it. I wish we had a bakery this good at home.

We went here after lunch for a great dessert. This place is either under a new owner or they owners aren't aware of what is going on. The desserts were so overpriced and disgusting. The ganache drizzled over the cake I ordered was grainy, and the lady behind the counter burned our cookie she was going to warm up for... More

We loved how quickly our food was prepared and happy with the quality and flavors. I was with two travel companions and we were all very pleased.

While on a cross-country trip with my boyfriend, we decided to stop here for breakfast before leaving for Arizona. I am an avid user of Yelp!, and this restaurant was highly rated. We decided to try it and we were not disappointed. I opted for the Maven's Gourmet Breakfast Burrito and my boyfriend got the Peach Compote French Toast. Both... More

Good thing I don't live in Santa Fe, because if I did, I'd drink this every morning. Have had copies in other locations outside SF, but Chocolate Maven's is the best. I don't even spend any time perusing anything else on the menu. No need.

We loved this place the first time we had breakfast here three years ago, so we made a special effort to come back even though some of the recent reviewers were not impressed. We were seated in the open air patio area, and the tables are quite crowded up there. Service was slow to begin with, and it took several... More
