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

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.

We are here every Mother's Day for their brunch and any chance I get to raid their pastry case, I take it. There is nothing like staring down a football-sized croissant filled with the most delicious almond cream that is made with the finest real pastry (Who knew that it has to be fermented? It is so laborious and therefore... More

Great place to have breakfast or lunch. We go here from time to time as a family for a treat. Went this time with my daughter for Valentine's Day. Good food and good service.

We always try to visit Chocolate Maven once for breakfast. It is fun to watch the bakers make croissants and other pastries while we eat. The menu items range from fairly traditional to things that are a little different, so there is something for everyone. This time we had the French toast and country breakfast. We recommended it to friends... More

WOW! This little gem is tucked in far away from the more all known iconic Santa Fe restaurants. Upon our arrival we were immediately greeted and promptly seated. The Brunch Menu is incredible. From traditional Eggs Benedict to the traditional New Mexico favorites with a twist. Our meals were delivered hot the food fresh and our waiter attentive to our... More

Well, I choose a place for Brunch I had never been to before and it was a wonderful experience! Two friends and I had a most delicious breakfast and then bought some wonderful homemade baked goods as we departed. The prices are very moderate for the generous size of the meals and the variety of meal choices will make this... More

It is a little out of the way but absolutely worth it. The breakfast is so delicious I loved the green eggs and sausage and the bakery goods you can purchase and take home - wow I loved the panettone and used it to make French toast
