Worth Going! Their French Onion Soup was the best I've had in years! I would definitely go back just for that. Something to consider: Cash Only! No credit/debit cards so be prepared Sandwich was boring -- I ended up dipping the sandwich roll into soup It is a cozy space. Great for singles, couples, trios but I would not recommend... More

In La Fonda Restaurant. Been going here for years for the omelets and quiches, but I cannot resist the Pan chocolate and Napoleon pastries.and, you have to see the handmade breads made like animals like alligators. Definitely worth a trip.

Many visitors to Santa Fe (like me) enjoy the green chili that appears in a great many New Mexican dishes, at every meal. Well worth enjoying -- but it's nice to have something different for a change, and the French Pastry Shop is about as different as you can get. An excellent selection of very good pastries. A rather sour... More

It was great to find such a place in Santa Fe after a few weeks of American food. Everything was nice : pastries, crêpes, coffee. You wish you could stay a bit longer to try the whole menu..

I have grabbed breakfast and lunch you're more than once. The crepes are wonderful as are the pastries. It's usually very packed with people and a little bit rushed. If you're staying with La Fonda I recommend it for its convenience. Otherwise I would probably go and experience the new Mexican food around the Plaza.

The pastry was wonderful, they also have other items but I tended to go to the pastry--(bad for the waist line). Location was very convenient as I was staying at the La Fonda which has an entrance in the hotel.

After two weeks of Mexican cuisine we were thrilled to see this restaurant during our first stroll about Santa Fe. So, several days later we stopped for lunch. Absolutely mediocre. The server could not even describe how the ham, cheese and egg crepe would be prepared. They purported to be authentic French - such a crepe would be with buckwheat... More

They even talk French. The pastries are delicious and the coffee is good. Located in the La Fonda hotel.
