We stopped into this charming restaurant just as it was about to close and yet were treated as though they had all the time in the world to serve us! I ordered the French onion soup and although a bit heavy on the cheese, was one of the best I've ever had! My husband had a house salad which was... More

The food here is very good, had dinner one evening, wife had Rack of Lamb, I had the Salmon dish. Both excellent, some of the best tasting food we have both had. Not inexpensive, but also not unreasonable for the type of restaurant. Small, not many tables. Also open for breakfast and lunch. Make a reservation for dinner. Side street... More

I am always looking for a good latte when my husband is traveling. He makes me a latte every morning with fresh roasted bean. The latte at Chez Mamou is the only one I've found in Santa Fe that rivals my husbands. The brioche is buttery and served warm, my eggs were perfect. I will definitely be back for lunch... More

It is a tiny restaurant about a block or two from the Plaza. When you walk in, you feel like you entered a cafe in Paris. The atmosphere is very unique & French. The food is extremely pleasant to your taste buds. My wife tried a chicken dish whost taste we had never experienced before; it was just simply wonderful.... More

When we saw this restaurant while walking around Santa Fe, we were excited and made a reservation right away. This was an unfortunate mistake. In fairness, most but not all of the food we ordered was quite good. The mussels were in a tasty sauce but were themselves rather poor - perhaps too old. The very small lamb chops were... More

This is white tablecloth fine dining attached to a not so fine jewelry store, with the restroom downscale on the jewelry store side. Wine by the glass is expensive and the food is generous and excellent. We had the chèvre salad, carbonara and chicken Marsala, all well spaced and served with ninja like service (quiet and quick).

Eggs Benedict were outstanding; excellent selection of pastries, and a very good mimosa! Friendly and helpful staff

Sometimes I get a smile. Yesterday around ten-thirty in the morning my wife, myself and some guests from Maine arrived, sans reservation for breakfast. All the tables were marked, "reserved" due to a large party who would shortly occupy the entire Cafe. Well, perhaps as a repeat customer or because our wives are so beautiful the owner and staff arranged... More

While in Santa Fe for my husband's business trip we ate at this little French cafe for our first breakfast in Santa Fe and it was delicious! My husband had the ham quiche and I had the eggs Benedict, both were fabulous! We were staying at the La Posada which is just up the street and I was on my... More

My wife and I ate here for brunch on a Sunday. The service was great. My wife had the Eggs Benedict and I had the Ham Quiche which were both excellent! Good coffee and latte also. They also have pastries, tarts, cookies, etc...that all looked very tasty so we might stop in and pick some of them up yet while... More
