Stopped for coffee and dessert about 2:00 on a Wednesday. The seating is a bit cramped, but the food is excellent. It seemed a bit pricey, but the quality of the service and food made it acceptable.

Not sure why we picked this particular place except that we were not up to more green Chile's yet. Food was overpriced, not all that good. The bread they claim to bake there was not the quality I would expect from a French bakery. Did not have any of the pastry, but it did not look particularly appetizing. The display... More

We visited in the later morning of Memorial Day 2014. Business was steady, but not overly so. That being said, the server rushed us and the greeting at the counter when we walked in wasn't the most friendly either. The strawberries in my crepe were mostly white and no sugar had been added to sweeten them. They also don't take... More

This restaurant is attached to the Hotel La Fonda so it is conveniently located. We wanted a quick "light" breakfast so headed here. My husband had a pastry that looked delicious and all I wanted was a small baguette and butter. His pastry was $5.50 and quite small. The prices made you feel like you had made the trip to... More

The food was good, but not so spectacular to put in a higher ranking. Service was good even though the restaurant was busy.

It was too crowded they didn't have all the desserts (indian market weekend), I ordered a Nutella crepe and it wasn't very good but the ratatouille crepe was good.

The humble little French Pastry Shop Restaurant tucked away in a dark corner of the La Fonda lobby with a separate entrance onto E. San Francisco is quietly enough probably the best eatery in New Mexico. The atmosphere evokes colonial times with a brick fireplace complete with copper ware on the mantel and wooden vigas interspersed with chandeliers overhead. The... More

Really fun small place with excellent baked goods. The decor is old world European and the service was very good. Loved the choices on our serendipitous stop one morning for breakfast.
