I know, we all go to Santa Fe and expect to eat the Santa Fe style food. We had crepes for breakfast with coffee and loved every bite. Beautiful looking pastries, but too full to indulge.

Don't, repeat, DO NOT go to this gastronomical disaster. The worst place to eat in Santa Fe. An embarrassment to anything pretending to be French.

We recently spent a week in Santa Fe and this was the only restaurant experience we regretted. We should have taken a clue from the fact that the place was almost deserted on a Saturday night. There were only three other tables when we arrived...More

I live in Albuquerque, and find myself in Santa Fe less and less. This bistro typifies the rude, arrogant behaviors we all have learned to expect from 'service' help in Santa Fe. You wait person is probably the son or daughter of someone famous, has...More

Something weird must have happened when the other reviewer got what he called "terrible" crepes. Both the traditional ones and the galettes (buckwheat crepes) are quite wonderful in my experience (yes, I have been to France). This is the best place for French food in...More
