Excellent coffee, ambiance, smells of French pastry shop. In several trips to Santa Fe we had walked by several times. This time we stopped to get coffee and warm up, not disappointed .

Stopped in for breakfast. Had iced tea and a crepe with egg, cheese and chorizo. Added a little green chili on top. tasted good. Also split a chocolate croissant with my dining companion. That was good as well. Would recommend. Cash only, no cards.

The French Pastry shop has been a family favorite of ours for decades. The atmosphere is cozy and warm. It's centrally located, and a great place to stop for a cup of coffee and pastry, or a light lunch. The chocolate eclairs are heavenly! And, after you eat, stroll through the beautiful lobby of the La Fonda and admire the... More

Um, yum!! We ate here twice, I recommend getting the quiche Lorraine, French onion soup, and a napoleon pastry. I also tried the chorizo crepe which was delicious but liked the quiche better. Quaint and casual little spot connected to la Fonda hotel. Right in the downtown area. Really loved it!

We were staying at La Fonda so it was very convenient. Similar to a La Madeleine restaurant. Cozy and comfortable. Breakfast crepes were excellent and the quiche Lorraine was very nice. Must bring cash they do not take cards.

Nice pastry shop with items prepared fresh daily. Some interesting speciality breads and crepe offerings in addition to the pastries. Old fashioned historical site attached to La Fonda Hotel

I originally visited this place to get a drink but came back the next day to eat because the food looked so beautiful. I had a ham & cheese crepe that was very dry, heavy, and lacked flavor. I also had a creme puff which was dry but tasty. Overall, the food looked better than it tasted. I also had... More

Very good little restaurant with excellent croissants. They rivaled any of the pastry we had while in France. We ordered pastry to go a couple of mornings with coffee to go. The Quiche Lorraine was also excellent. Staff were very friendly to us. Visited them 3 days in a row.

We were staying at the La Fonda and decided to have lunch here during our stroll through the plaza. We each had half of a baguette sandwich, which was actually large enough to be a whole one in other places. We saved room for the crepes for dessert and they were absolutely delicious. We love crepes, and I had the... More

We stayed at the La Fonda for a week and had passed through this restaurant and admired the pastries and breads on display. It was listed in our "Top 10" book so decided to go there for breakfast. Our food was good, not anything great. I had a crepe with chorizo sausage; Janet had croque madame. The problem, though, was... More
