We ended up at this cafe due to time constraints and were very happy with the view and food. The service was pretty slow and made us late in getting to International Folk Art Museum (we only had 90 minutes before it closed) but that was partly because we arrived after lunch service had pretty much ended and I guess...

Really terrible service which is too bad because the location is perfect on Museum Hill which draws many people.

My husband and I had a delicious meal here at the Museum Hill Cafe. The service was quick and accurate, the server was pleasant and very helpful, and the food was outstanding!!! 5 stars all around. Definitely a perfect lunch place when visiting the museums.

My husband and I were invited to meet my aunt and uncle for lunch here but, timewise we weren't able to go to the museums that day. Being from out of town we were excited to try several Santa Fe restaurants and this was our favorite. Sitting inside or outside , there is a beautiful view. The selections were all... More

The Museum Hill Cafe is an excellent environment with stunning views! It's a great place for lunch, especially when visiting the museums. Service was a little slow on Sunday, but then the restaurant was very full. We had to flag down a different waiter a couple of times to ask for refills on our drinks because our waiter seems to...

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.
