Something about this quaint little place drew me in, and I'm so glad we decided to lunch here! Very, very busy, but service was still pretty quick. Spinach quiche was superb, an almost custard-like filling on top of of a bed of spinach. My husband had both a ham and cheese and a raspberry crepe; both were very large but... More

For many, many years we have dined at the French Pastry shop in La Fonda hotel. It is a rock of quality French country cooking, and it is especially great for enjoying an early espresso and pastry in the morning or a take-home Milanese or Quiche Lorraine for dinner. For many years, the quality has remained at the highest of... More

Perfect when you need a coffee and a goodie (of which they have all too many). Set into La Fonda, it's right in the middle of things and as pleasant as a cappuccino on a cold afternoon.

Our most favorite eatery in Santa Fe. Authentic fresh baked pastries and breads that make delicious sandwiches. NOTE: Cash only - NO credit or debit cards. Small and intimate with a true Parisian flair this is a great place for breakfast or lunch or if you have a sweet tooth to feed in the afternoon. Seating is limited so go... More

Basic french classics (crepes, quiche, onion soup, croque madam). Everything on the menue is very good. A little pricey (and cash only). I love the old time, European ambiance. The chorizo crepe and cafe logoise' (espresso and ice cream) are excellent treats as well as all of the cakes in the counter. YUM. Don't forget to tip your server!

Stopped into the French Pastry Shop & Restaurant after a docent guided tour of The La Fonda art collection. A lovely croque madam and a mocha hit the spot.

My boyfriend and I stopped here for breakfast before walking around the plaza. We each ordered a savory crepe. I ordered the bacon and egg and he ordered chorizo and egg. So delicious! We shared them both. My favorite was the chorizo. We also split a strawberry crepe and added whipped cream. Melted in your mouth. Service was good and... More

We stopped in for an afternoon dessert. Delicious pastries and good coffee. The lunches looked good but we did not try.

We could not resist stopping in for a cappuccino mid morning. Once inside we could not resist the selections in the pastry case. My husband ordered the chocolate eclair and I had the cream puff. OMG If I closed my eyes I surely would be in France. The quality was that good. Treat yourself by stopping in at the French... More

I cannot tell you how very much I love this place, a true home, a shelter, a wonderful place for an early continental breakfast with a divine cafe au lait (even with the soymilk I requested) and a perfectly freshly baked crunchy externally, soft internally, baguette. The greatest and most touching joy for me was for the first time in... More
