Good Breakfast-Brunch Place

It is a quaint, small restaurant that is usually crowded and noisy. The menu has several interesting French dishes that makes it great for breakfast or brunch; however, they take only cash. The bacon cheese and egg crepe is dull; however, the Croque Monsieur with the melted cheese exterior and ham... read more

We were very excited to visit this bakery after reading through the comments on Trip Advisor. Our plan...Stop in, get coffee, leave. Well, we got a little late start that morning and so we were a bit hungry, so... Two crepe's (raspberry), and two chocolate mousse. It took fooooreeeever! for the waitress to come over to ask if we would... More

The espresso was excellent. The current owners have either never been to France or have forgotten how French pastry should be made.

Food just ok, costly for what you get. If you have a sweet tooth might help. Pastries looked tasty. Hot sandwich I tried was a bit disappointing. Felt we could have made a better choice. Did receive good service, busy place but attentive wait staff did a good job with drink refills. Just not my cup of tea.

Nice location and very fast service. Good alternative if and when you've had enough of New Mexico cuisine. Fresh bread and cakes made daily at the restaurant- all extremely good. Nice salads and French onion soup. Very popular at lunch time so go early or be prepared to wait a while. Staff are excellent though and service great so never... More

The food is wonderful, especially the French Onion Soup. But then again, everything is delicious. Those pastries are to die for. Come with an empty stomach because you will want to eat a lot. Comfortable seating, inside and out.

After a day of shopping in the Santa Fe Plaze area, you will want to rest your feet at the French Pastry Shop and Restaurant. I only had a dessert there. I had the fresh strawberry crepe. It was very delicious. It was about $10 for the crepe. The staff was friendly.

We've been getting our Bouche de Noel here every Christmas for years and always stop in at least once on every visit to Santa Fe. The coffee and cafe au lait are superb, and the waitresses are quick to refill the coffee cups. We've tried a lot of the pastries, and all are just as good as they look. A... More

We ate here four mornings, as a refuge from expensive hotel breakfasts. I heard the owner speaking Parisian French to another customer, so his pastries looked and tasted like the real thing. Our server remembered what my granddaughter ordered the first morning, and brought it to her each morning after that without asking. Cappuccino was perfect, and all the variety... More
