Great experience at this European-style bakery: my husband ordered a strawberry nutella crepe and I had a bacon egg cheese crepe for breakfast; also hot tea and a cappuccino. We both loved our dishes. The texture of my savory crepe was perfect; golden brown and the cheese (I think it was Swiss) melted into deliciousness. Bacon a little heavy/greasy but... More

Aside from having my coffee delivered in a cup with lip stick stains from a previous diner the coffee was not much better than what could be had at a gas station. Why claim to be a french bakery and not serve french pressed? The sandwiches we had were dry and tasteless.

My husband and I stopped by here for lunch. We both got a sandwich and were very pleased. Would love to go back and try some of their pastries. It's a nice pleasant place to stop and rest while exploring Santa Fe.

I didn't even go in because I saw a sign on the door that said no credit cards. In a tourist town like Santa Fe? I'm always suspicious of "cash-only" eateries.

My husband, mother-in-law, and I were visiting in Santa Fe, NM for a few days and are big fans of Starbucks, which there is one in Santa Fe, but we decided to try a local place. We LOVED it here. Great atmosphere, delicious homemade food, and coffees in a centrally located place in the historic district. My only complaint would... More
