I tried their gluten free apple pie and LOVED it! I don't get stuff like that very often so it was a really wonderful treat!

I really want to like this restaurant because it is a beautiful location. I get tired of eating with flies, and service could improve. The young waiter calling a group of 60+ year-old women "girls" was grating. The waiter also gave us wrong information about the food, so I ordered something I would not have had he been more informed... More

We played tourists after first moving here and this is one of the areas we explored. Made a food stop at this restaurant since we were seeing all the museums in the area. It was not a good experience. Service was spit slow, food was only okay, and it took forever to get the bill. My fiancée has since been... More

It is a very rare occasion when I send back food, but this happened at our brunch at the Museum Hill Cafe. I ordered the smoked salmon on bagel, and when it arrived it had gigantic hunks of onion on top instead of thin slivers which is optimal, but I just removed the onion and expected to enjoy my bagel....

So we had sandwiches, a salad and ice tea and it was all very good but the pie - the pie was amazzzzing! Both hubby and I had different pieces of pie and we couldn't decide which we liked better! Also the staff was friendly and very attentive.

Attended Folk Art Festival and again ate at the Café. Very nice owner and staff. And surely convenient on museum hill. Food average at best at a somewhat high cost for the quality.

The first good thing about this place is that it was very busy on Sunday afternoon. Very wide selection of menu items. I picked the Monte Cristo and it was great. My wife picked the Greek salad with chicken and it was also great. The Museum complex is very fortunate to have a great restaurant on premises. Kudos to the... More

This place is terrific. We sat on the outdoor patio, where cool breezes played across the plaza. Very, very nice food that's a little bit of a new take on New Mexican. The service was attentive and sweet; everyone wanted us to enjoy ourselves. We got there just a little bit before the lunchtime rush, which I highly recommend to... More

Perched midway between 2 of Santa Fe's 'must see' Museum Hill attractions, this cafe has indoor or outside seating, a varied menu w/good wine & beer, and fair prices. This popular spot can get crowded, so be patient with servers... Live guitar this noon added to our enjoyment :)

The setting is wonderful. Recommend the outside shaded patio. Great views and cool breezes. The food and service were good enough to write home about. Don't miss it!
