Just can't beat the view! The food is tasty, too! Service, while friendly, can be slow. The wait was worth it for the innovative and yummy corn custard with poblano cream sauce; the best patty melt sandwich was truly the best - an great take on a burger - beef with swiss cheese, grilled onions on grilled rye bread.

We went for a snack between museums -- delicious pies (tortes?), good coffee. Great views -- you are on Museum Hill, after all, looking out over Santa Fe. So, when you visit the Museums on the Hill, remember that you can also get a good lunch or snack!

Try the restaurant for excellent food in a spacious and relaxing environment. Salads were delicious. Busy and enjoyable buzz in the dining room as museum visitors gathered there for a lunch break. The Fold Art Museum is one-of-a-kind with beautiful and very colorful creations from around the world.

We stopped by only for a snack: coffee and something, we thought. Well, the carrot cake exerted its seductive wiles (homemade daily), and the espresso machine screamed 'cappuccino!" Both were right on; and the leftover carrot cake made a good start for our journey to the Balloon Fiesta at 4:00 AM.

My family of 6 had a late lunch here after several hours of museum going. Be careful, because they're only open til 3 to the public. Expect to spend about $15 average. The outdoor seating on the shaded patio is very comfortable...it's always bustling out there. The menu is simple, well executed salads, soups and sandwiches with a smattering of... More

Enjoyed coffee looking out over the vista. Good coffee, but better conversation and setting for planning next stop on Museum Hill.

We stopped here for a glass of wine and snacks after an afternoon of exploring the museums. We were seated right away and offered a wine list. My first choice was not available, so I went with a New Mexico wine, Ponderosa, and it was excellent. It became part of our vacation after that to try and find Ponderosa wine!... More

We had the best waiter for our lunch at Museum Hill Café. He offered suggestions and helpful advice laced with good humor. Our group was unanimous in giving this dining spot an A+. You may either dine inside or outside on the patio. We chose the latter. Dishes to try - the duck flautas and the salmon tostadas. The gazpacho... More
