“My oasis when I am not in France!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 November 2012

We just returned from our annual trip to France. My husband and I vacation in France every year for 15 years. We have dined in simple bistros to Alain Ducasse Louis XV in Monoco. We have a very experienced palate. We are so happy to have Joel and his family preparing true French dishes and pastries that hold to the standards that any French cafe would be proud to offer. It is true French cuisine prepared fresh everyday. Their love and passion really shows in their food. The food quality is always consistant and is extremely clean. They create a happy environment, always a smile on the faces and happy to see you. The prices are very affordable. I can tell you in France a croissant would be double the price and half the size and that is for take away. This is a little France in the dessert. We need to make sure they stay in business for a long time so when you tire of the many Mexican restaurant that you can get sick at most, you can go to Cafe 25 to enjoy a real true French Cafe. It can be a very healthly eating too. Just select the right items and go slow on those beautiful desserts.

“Big surprise!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 August 2012

This French cafe was a nice surprise in terms of food and service. You go up to the counter to order the food, which was very good. We were there for lunch, so we ordered French onion soup, leak and potato soup, and a grilled chicken sandwich with pesto, avocado, lettuce and tomato. The leak and potato soup was sent back for being luke warm, but it was taking care of by prompt and efficient service. The bread was amazing, and there was a variety of pastries that looked excellent, even though we resisted the temptation of ordering dessert.

“A hidden Gem!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 July 2012

Take a break from the Plaza and Canyon Road and head to the Santa Fe Outlet mall on Cerrillos Road. Or stop in when heading into of from historic Santa Fe. You will be amazed at this French breakfast and lunch cafe. All I can say is do it! Absolutely wonderful!

“What a pleasant surprise!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 June 2012

This superb restaurant is nestled in the Outlet Mall on the edge of I25 and Cerrillos Road and has the most authentic French food anywhere out of Paris. The Chef is so creative and the food is always 'tops' and I will guarantee you won't be disappointed.
