We always enjoy eating breakfast or having an early lunch and Chez Mamou while in Santa Fe, NM. It is casual with indoor and outdoor dining. The French pastries on made on-site and everything is delicious, the atmosphere is enjoyable and relaxing. Just being in Santa Fe is always a joy and this place is always one of our first... More

Many of the restaurants in proximity of the plaza in Santa Fe are jam packed, noisy, and far from relaxing, however good the food. Chez Mamou is only a couple blocks from the center of action but seems a world apart. Delicious French food with a large menu that includes the classics as well as some innovations, relaxed atmosphere and... More

The Beignets were to DIE FOR!!!! I believe they only do them on Saturday, and they sell out quick but I think they may have been better than Café du Monde! All of our sandwiches, breakfast items, and other pastries were also top notch and I have found another favorite amongst my other favorite SF restaurants! Beware they are extremely... More

Have a passion for almond croissants but rarely let myself indulge. Today, went to Mamou and picked up one and a cup of coffee. Returned to my office and bit into it. Much to my surprise, there was no almond flavor - only egg. Blech. Soggy dough and no flavor. No high on my list.

We were really looking forward to a wonderful meal at Chez Mamou and know that many have enjoyed this restaurant. Unfortunately we were disappointed. We had a very nice charcuterie and cheese platter to start. Very nice. I ordered the mussels and the got 2 bad ones in the 4 I tried. The sauce was tainted with that bad mussel... More

What a delightful place to have a meal or just spend some time catching up with a friend having a coffee and a patisserie. Having been married to a french man for more than 20 years, I feel qualified to say this has one of the best and extensive menus I have experienced in the US and give the Chef... More

We sat on the porch and had a pleasant time and tasty meal. The waitresses were as sweet as could be and the food was super. I had the chicken marsala and Jim had the vegetarian option. We were both happy with our selection. Oh, while you wait be sure and peruse the jewelry shop that shares the space.

Tasty food and out of the ordinary choices. Charming decor and very friendly staff.Bakery items looked good, but too full to try.
