If you like French pastries....

This place was not inexpensive but the pastries were quite good as was the coffee. The servers were very nice and the place was run in a very French fashion - that is, no nonsense. The convenience of being literally off an alcove at La Fonda was excellent for us.

Crepes and French pastries without leaving the La Fonda Hotel. A gem anytime of day. Crowded but worth the wait.

I was anxious to dine here because of the publicity. I had high expectations. Service was slow. Prices weren't on the menu. I inquired and found they were on a menu board at the front of the shop. I could not see them from my table. French onion soup was excellent. Bread was a bit dry on the turkey sandwich.... More

Three friends had a lite breakfast one morning during our visit to Santa Fe. We all agreed this was the only restaurant we tried in Santa Fe that we would not go to again. There are so many excellent restaurants why go to average? My crepe was not special in any way - perhaps what I ordered but my friends... More

Pretty close to the crepes you will find in Paris. We had a nice lunch here in a friendly and comfortable atmosphere. Good food. We had the savory crepes, not the dessert ones. Reasonable prices about $10 for a plate).

It's a bit dark and dank inside, but look beyond that and settle in for some really wonderful pastries, crepes, and baguette sandwiches, all done in the French style. Casual setting and service, and you can either sit and eat there or get pastries and sandwiches to go if you're planning a picnic while hiking.

Loved the brioche and apple turnovers--wonderful chai latte. Friendly, energetic, and definitely would go back to when we visit Santa Fe again.

Delightful spot for a meal and very popular. Had the 1/2 roast beef & swiss and the 1/2 French grilled cheese and both were delicious. Our server told us that the whole sandwich was a substantial meal and we were glad we had the halves, which were plenty. To top off the meal, we had the apricot tart, which was... More

Super busy and the reason is excellent pastry and espresso. We always like to patronize the local coffee shops when possible. This is a definite visit.

Attached to La Fonda this french bistro gets packed especially during peak breakfast hours. Great pastries and fabulous crepes they also have an extensive quiche menu. Everything is cooked on site including the baguette. Be ready to order because your server is on a dead run all day.
