I wasn't expecting to find a really good café in an outlet mall on the southern outskirts of town, just next to the entrance to the Interstate, but after stopping once for a coffee, I've gone back with friends just for the lunch. Breads and rolls are fresh baked, pastries and coffee are excellent (and rich - no skimping on real cream). Potato leek soup and onion soup were freshly made and good. Crepes taste like Brittany. Haven't tried the torte Normand, but am told it's excellent, and probably the heartiest thing on the menu. Alas, they don't have macarons every day, but fruit tarts, eclairs, napoleons, and sinfully rich cream puffs are always available. Atmosphere is simple, clean, bright and cheery. Perfect place for brunch or lunch when shopping with friends.

I've been wanting to try this for some time. Good food, polite staff. Convenient location. Clean and tastefully decorated.

Family owned French cafe with good crepes, sandwiches and salads. Bread is not authentic, but the pastries are good and the coffee is very French. Open for breakfast and lunch.

The Cafe 25 is located within the Santa Fe Outlet Mall and is only open for breakfast and lunch. Breakfast is not served after 11:00am, so we were there in time for a yummy lunch.

Order at the counter and your food is brought out to you. Atmosphere is bright - thanks in part to a large sky light - and comfortable. Fresh pastries are made on site, and you can purchase pastries and other items to go, or order for special occasions at least one day ahead of time. Crepes, quiche and croissants were fabulous, and cafe au lait was smooth and served piping hot.

The only down side we have for this bistro is that it's a bit pricy for what you get. Portions are of adequate size, especially as food is so fresh and rich, but quite small for the price. Still, you can pay quite a bit for food not nearly so good at other French restaurants.

Bottom line: We would surely dine here again when we are in the area and craving delicious pastries and food.

Even though this little gem is in the outlet mall, it is a great place to stop and grab a bite. The fresh pastries are incredible! The lunch menu is equally good.

This is family owned and operated. They are very friendly and helpful!

This is a rare find in New Mexico!
