Awesome place for breakfast, and/or brunch.Although it is in a weird place, once you get there is super cute, clean and you feel you are in a Paris with good coffee and excellent bakery. Service was awesome too. a must when visiting Santa Fe.

This great cafe has a working bakery that you can watch through the glass wall! And you can purchase freshly baked goods to go, too! We had breakfast here, and everyone's dish was delicious! The French Toast made with challah bread is amazing.
