Traveling from the East Coast means you are up early and looking for coffee or something to eat. This was one of the few places open for business. The service was lackluster - slow and unenthusiastic. The coffee was passable. The pastries were okay

The location and food were excellent. The prices reasonable. Waitress not friendly or helpful at all, but other guests and regulars were helpful with menu suggestions. Need to bring cash! No credit cards or checks accepted!

This cash-only eatery located at the La Fonda on the Plaza is actually a pretty realistic Patisserie/Boulangerie. Everything is a bit pricey, as you would expect for a tourist area, but the crepes and pastries were about as good as you'll find in France. We enjoyed our stop for a sweet treat.

Service was very nice. The spinach and cheese crepe was average. Love the atmosphere and visiting with friends. Nice setting.

I had breakfast twice during our stay. The chicken/mushroom crepes are 'to die for', the coffee is rich and delicious, and the pastries are one of life's pleasures!

I have gone to the French pastry Shop and restaurant many times over the years and it is always perfect. small tables, sweet and good service by charming people, good for a lunch or just for coffee and dessert which I recommend. The bread is baked as baguettes---very French---and the desserts are authentic. i particularly like the napoleons as desserts... More

The coffee is good but the crepes we had were terrible. We think the pastry shop has changed hands and is not the same quality or service as before. This is prime location at the la Fonda and it should be as delicious as it was for years. The pastries are average.

This restaurant has become a "must visit" whenever we are in Santa Fe. We have had everything from the crepes to pastries to quiche and have never been disappointed! Truly a gem. NOTE: Make sure you bring cash, because they do not accept credit or debit!

This place is right in the middle of downtown Santa Fe in the La Fonda Hotel building with an entrance to the sidewalk outside. So we literally walked right by it a few times. I love good, strong coffees and I adore pastries so this was a no-brainer for me. We tried a couple times to go there for lunch... More
