First service was so slow we took pasties to go, after waiting, and getting even acknowledgement. I thought it was odd that it was cash only. The Napoleon I had looked wonderful, but was very dry, almost stale, and stingy on the cream. Would save money for better dessert or breakfast choices in Santa Fe.

We ate here for early lunch on a Sunday and we felt lucky to get a seat at this busy, small, crowded restaurant. My restaurant theory has been that if I look in the window or the parking lot and the place is nearly full, it is usually very good sign. And we weren't disappointed. My wife had half of... More

Our experience in this restaurant has been very poor. The coffee was thin and tasteless. The croissant and pastries we ordered seemed old and uninteresting. To top it all, service was terrible. We were glad to get out of there as soon as we could.

Unfortunately not all items of the menu were available, but they have an excellent tarte aux fraises and correct coffee. It's a place to rest and refresh a bit.

If there was one thing positive I could say about La Fonda, the only thing is the French Pastry Shop. The only problem is that you should not stay at the hotel, but maybe stop in for a croissant and coffee but NOTHING ELSE!

Best place in town to get your sweets. Coconut Macroons go fast and not easily seen because in back of viewing case. So ask. Out by afternoon. Delicious pastries, breads.

We stumbled onto this cute little café while walking around Santa Fe. The decor is very neat and a lot of French items on the menu such as French onion soup, Croque Madame, baguette and many pastry items like Napoléon , Opéra and etc. We ordered the savory Ratatouille and Spinch & chicken crepes and both of them were made...

Authentic and lots of variety. Our favorite was the croissants aux amandes.... Plain croissants were also good. And coconut macaroons. We also did crepes ones morning... The local egg. Cheese and chorizo was good and filling.

We went after Mass on a Sunday morning. It was busy but we found a table. Service was good. The waitress kept our waters and coffees filled. Great coffee. I had a crepe which was the best I have had outside Quebec. My husband had a pastry which he loved. We will go again before we leave Santa Fe.
