When we stay in Santa Fe, we always go to this place for breakfast. Make sure you get there when it opens or be prepared to wait. It is well worth the wait by the way.

On our flight into Denver to catch our Santa Fe flight, the gentleman sitting behind us highly recommended Pasqual's. He told us we would no doubt need a reservation for an evening meal. We decided to do lunch there, and are we ever so glad we did. I had the Pear Gorgonzola Walnut salad with grilled chicken. Wonderful! My husband... More

Make sure you call ahead and make reservations. Cafe Pasquale is small and the reservations fill up fast. The food here is amazing. Probably the best mole of my life.

I found this only fair. Some people love it here. They do have a community table where you can eat with new friends. I like that aspect of this eatery. We had lunch and the portions are big.

Such a delicious restaurant! Always a treat for friends and family from out of town. We love breakfast and lunch - dinner is a bit spendy....

It's wearing all the right patches on its sleeve, "Organic" "Grass Fed" but, but , but... very unimpressive food in my humble opinion. The "grass fed" filet mignon was not very tasty and quite dry. Mashed potatoes, well just mashed, nothing special. Appetizer of plantain chips not bad but over-priced. Also not comfortable, we were squashed in at the "community... More

We arrived about 15 minutes before it opened for breakfast. There was a line, but everyone in town had raved about it, we decided to stay and so happy we did!!! Everyone who was on the line got in, they have a lot of seats and a communal table. Service was prompt and coffee was good. The food was delicious... More

They are known as a breakfast place but have started serving dinner. We made an early 5:30 reservation and there was a line at the door when we arrived. Waiter was very attentive and helpful. There were 3 in our party and everyone enjoyed their food. Nobody raved about their dishes but they were a good portion size, tasty and... More

Don't be discouraged by the lines at the door, or the "community table" option. This place is friendly with spot-on food and service. Fantastic evening and worth the reputation.
