Chocolate Maven is a local favourite, in a town with a wealth of wonderful eateries to choose from. The food is consistently good, whatever you order, and the service always friendly. It's a place I like to meet friends.

The atmosphere is delightful, warm and friendly. The food preparation is perfection and bakery goods the best in Santa Fe. You do pay for the excellence but it is worth it. Definitely quality over quanity!
