REVIEWS OF French Pastry Shop & Restaurant IN New Mexico


Despite its small interior the restaurant feels intimate & cozy. Have only visited once, specialty coffees made perfectly, crepes good & there's an excellent selection of French pastries. Attached to an upscale hotel with rear door leading to other shops. It's definitely on my list for next visit.

Matt Wood

I had the chicken, mushroom and spinach crepe. It tastes like it came from a can of chicken soup. Also had an order of bread. While bread and butter should be their bread and butter, it was unremarkable. The price does not warrant the quality. The service, however, is fast and friendly.

Peter Riva

Odd, yesterday's pastries at b'fadt

Jesse Ray

I love this place!!! When we go to Santa Fe, we wind up eating here almost every day. Crepes are great (I think the sweet crepes are best), pastries are REALLY great, and I love the pâté sandwich. Look, the ladies who work here are VERY BUSY. You’re going to get good service, but they don’t have a lot of time for touristy nonsense. Act like a human being, and they’ll be nice. Sometimes they don’t see you when you seat yourself, so politely mention you need something, and they’ll help. This place is worth it, and they deserve a much higher star rating than they have. It’s quaint and lovely!

jean kies

Nice stop for a fresh crepe or macaroon

Bryce Gaston

The crepes were amazing.

Penny Fong

Delicious pastries, cozy ambiance, wood floors, rustic decor, fire in the fireplace, great stop from the snowy weather

Cecilia Gutierrez

Great place and excellent service!

Pam Reass

Its a cute little place but their prices are ridiculous. We had 2 berry crepes and 1 coffee for $29.50 (not including tip). Really? In Los Alamos at Fleur de lys, their crepes look like a piece of art when served, are half the price and taste just as good if not better. I highly recommend eating at this French cafe/grocery store.

Doug Kemme

Nice coffee and pastries attached to La Fonda, great service and atmosphere.

Bryce Egbert

Way overpriced for the low-quality food. Charming atmosphere, waitress was less than helpful.

Mark Bussemeier

I always question businesses who accept only cash. In this case having an ATM handy with a $4 transaction fee makes me see red. Good food - inattentive service. I doubt they would survive outside the historic building they lease space from.

Alex Aniba

Great spot for crepes, espresso and French pastries on the plaza.

benjamin Cooper

very good I think its cash only place. so good I went in for seconds at breakfast lol

Ryder Doty

Fantastic food and service here. Make sure to bring cash, they don’t accept cards. Also bring a lot of cash because we ordered 2 drinks, 2 pastries and 2 crepes and our bill was $45.

Geoff Evans

The food and service were good. The crepes were very good and tasty. The only bad thing is they don't accept any kind of credit or debit cards. This was not posted anywhere except on a small paper right by the register to pay.

Carol Williams

quiche was very good, french onion soup was tasty.

Matt McClard

I love this place. The food and coffee is always great. It is a must visit while in Santa Fe. One note they only take cash so make sure you have some, but it's totally worth it. Pro tip: the camera shop across the street has an ATM.

Dianna Cerasia

Love this pastry shop. Great cappuccino, and the pastries are wonderful. Always enjoy eating there.

Walter Conover

Friendly service in nice location, but not authentic french cuisine at all. The spinach quiche had way too much spinach and literally zero flavor, croque monsieur was very soggy on the bottom, french bread tasted more like a saltine than bread. No sides served with anything. Cost $68 for four people at lunch. Cash only....With many great options in the area this is unfortunately not worth a visit.

Trey White

We went in there for dessert after our meal at la Fonda. they have pretty good crepes but it was also very expensive for a cup of coffee and one crepe it cost us 20 bucks. The service was good and the crepe was good just can't believe the price

David Bump

Great crepes; fast, friendly service. Cash only (ATM inside La Fonda hotel). Seat yourself for table service, or order at the counter for take away.

Corvo Vargas

Waitresses get yelled at by the manager forced customer service bad vibes and old food

Ron T

Meh...was just ok. It was packed with people but the food and pastries were just so-so.

Verena Willkomm

Pushy waitress ("You pay at the register, tip stays oj the table"), lousy hot chocolate that comes from one of those machines and tastes of fat. Nice decor.

Christine Wagner

Very Parisian feel, pastries and coffee drinks, cozy decor

Geena Toxby

Pastries & coffee were excellent! Annoyed they were "cash only" but thankfully there was an ATM right inside.


Burnt ham and cheese crepe.

Tenaya Montoya

Good food and pastries!

Judy Lepic

Fast service, delicious food. FYI alert: Cash only! Animal shaped baked goods!! Best to visit early before crowds.

Christian Pagnard

Great little pastry shop. Had a savory crepe and a sweet crepe, both were delicious. Very crowded and a little pricey but definitely worth it in my book

Laurie Cote

Every piece of pastry we tried was stale. I was VERY DISAPPOINTED. THE QUICHE WAS GOOD, and the service left a bit to be desired.

Rodney Henderson

Great pastries and good breakfast selections. Friendly staff. Cash only.

Josh Moan

We only went for the crapes, and it was totally worth it! We had one savory and one sweet (banana/Nutella), they came quickly and we’re delicious! Will definitely return again if we have a chance.

Catherine Lucas

I have been a customer for at least six years, if not longer. It was one of my go to places whenever in Santa Fe. Sadly enough, at my last visit with my British friend, two weeks ago, I was shocked to pay $49 for two coffees, two crepes and two brioches. I was appalled at the price hike that obviously had happened over the last months. This will probably the last time I had one of my favorite crepes there. It has become way too expensive! Very sad, as I Belgian I looked forward to every Santa Fe visit, not anymore, well, I will have to skip a visit to my favorite crepe place...

Dan Ahern

A must visit spot every time we visit Santa Fe. One gets the old world vibe in a happening place. Crepes, please!

Jeremy Ziehl

All of the food was perfect, staff were prompt and friendly. We tried onion soup, quiche, montmartre and rhum baba. All amazing!

Andrea G.

Pastries are fabulous! Our server could’ve been more hospitable and attentive. Don’t wait until after lunch if you want a pastry as they run out, even during the off season. I learned this when they told me they didn’t have anymore chocolate crossings. Opted for a delicious apple turnover.

Halley Bebout

The French Pastry Shoppe is continually my go-to place in Santa Fe for breakfast and lunch! I love their freshly baked croissants, as well as variety of sweet or savory crepes. The French Onion soup is a must as well. The laid back ambience is perfect for families...and the service is always outstanding. I always leave with a box of pastries to take home...everything is addictive <3

Paul Johnsen

Amazing breakfast crepes and macarons!

Clayton Smith

Beautiful, friendly, and delicious place in Durango - can't wait to come back soon!

Michelle Jicha

This place was amazing our waitress Celeste was so friendly and nice.


Nice service, good breakfast. Cash only.

Marissa Wolf

We love this place and come here just about every morning for breakfast when we’re in town. Crepes are better than the quiche, and the St. Michael is so so good. It’s cash only so be sure to get cash before hand or be stuck with the ATM fees at the Camera Shop across the street. You won’t regret it!


Sooo delish. Delicious French pastries and Ice cofee. Awesome staff

Jamie Twibell

My crepe wasn't as flavorful as I hoped but the service was good as well as coffee and cream puff.

Michelle Stroebe

The best spinach quiche I've ever had! Amazing little bakery.

Lane Waddell

Cool authentic French experience. Obviously quality ingredients and made fresh and to order. WARNING: You seat yourself although it won't feel like it when you walk in. The poor guy behind the counter has to direct every person that comes in to sit.

Jazmine Binger

I had literally the BEST dessert of my entire life here. Genuine and authentic.

t k

NOT FRENCH! Good Mexican Pastries.

Livio Azzoni

Great crepes and really good pastries

Graham Bowkett

So called crepe was nothing like a French crepe, not even close. But I will visit again and give them a second chance. Bring cash they don't take plastic.

Paula Brentan

I've been coming here for over 40 years it is always fabulous!!

Somongkol Teng

Food was good but price was ridiculous. They don’t list their prices on the menu. We had two crepes and an ice tea. Final bill was over $37 (excluding tip). The most expensive crêpe I’ve eaten anywhere - even in a nicer restaurant!!

Ava Bernardini

My daughter loves the crepes and I love the location.

Bill Shipley

You simply must try this pastry and deli shop. It is usually the first place I head for when I get to town. Great food. Nice ambiance and cozy. I believe you wont be sorry when you stop by this place.

Mike Tommerup

BRING CASH! This is a cash only spot but the food is good and the staff pretty friendly.

Katharine Sim

The quiche is delicious.

Darrell Pach

The Napoleon was so good. But this place is strictly cash and $4 fee for ATM. And it's a bit pricey so a $20 withdrawal may not due for 2 cappuccinos and pastries.

Kenneth Taylor

The quiche Lorraine and fruit cup were tasty. The setting is very attractive. The staff was friendly and helpful and the value was good for downtown Santa Fe.

Zina Taran

A quaint pleasant place to have a crepes breakfast. A bit on the expensive side but very neat. I had crepes with fresh berries, super tasty!

Mike Lightfoot

Really tasty pastries! Great hot chocolate. It was busy (Balloon Fiesta week), but they got us served and back out expeditiously. Can’t wait to go back another time when we have more time to enjoy this great pastry shop.

blayne Wright

Absolute rip off. 4 people ate. 5 sat at the table tip was automatically included. And cash only, had to spend anoth $3 to get cash out. So it cost $90 for 4 people to eat mediocre food. Don’t waste your money.

Bruce Underwood

Best French pastries in the SW.

Ben Brooks

Indifferent If not surly service and very lame food. The system to get seated is a hot mess and creates a needlessly stressful experience. They should learn from the La Fonda rooftop bar which is a tightly run ship! All of the food we had was “not worth the calories” so skip it and head to Chez Mamou just 2 blocks away instead.

Debbie Jones

Outstanding delicious pastries ♡♡♡

barry martin

If you do Santa Fe you do this. We have been coming here for 36 years.

Amy Treff

Lovely spot for breakfast.... great atmosphere. I had a spinach and cheese crepe that was wonderful. It was warm and filling. Ready for the day now!

Mark Scott

Food and service

Me Midtown

Quaint eatery that had baked goods and delicious soups and sandwiches!

Bob Russo

Cozy French cafe. Excellent service. Good food with a French twist

Aa White

Best pastries in New Mexico

nancy b

I love this place they make everything from scratch and all the food is fresh every day!

Judd Dupuis

Excellent shop with plenty of character but the food is what shines. The Raisin Roll is remarkable. Sweet and savory crepes are all consistently well prepared. Pair anything with a cappuccino.

Rosa Silvas

Our favorite stop when we go to Santa Fe. Staff is friendly and food is phenomenal.

Steve Durham

You gotta go! Cozy atmosphere. Friendly staff. Best of all? The food! Quiche Lorraine, chorizo crepe, fresh strawberries and blueberries, Rhum Baba -- out of this world!

Joshua Fagan

If you're itching for French cuisine, it's hard to do better than here. The atmosphere is welcoming and the food is delicious. It's a wonderful little place.

Leah Jimenez

Nobody answers the phone when trying to inquire about desserts.. Called three times in a row, kept ringing and no voicemail.

Catroast DuJour

It was my first time visiting the French Pastry Shop and I thought it was a nice experience. The cafe is attached to the La Fonda Hotel and has an old New Mexico dark wood interior. It is a bit cramped inside, but seating worked out fine. The regular coffee I ordered was great, but the Black Forest pastry I had was fantastic. I loved it! It is in the Santa Fe plaza area, so expect to pay more for most everything, and remember to bring cash, since some places refuse credit/debit cards.

Ruth Duarte

Customer service excellent! Best French pastry in Santa Fe!

Lorena Kalija Lorena Eagle

Heard about this place and decided to make it the first stop to Santa Fe. Yes the pastries do look and smell good but I was not impressed with the quality of the quiche. Maybe if the wait staff smiled back and said good morning the dishes might have been more appetizing. As they say presentation and hospitality make any dish taste better.

David Kane

Nice little stop by.

christina chastain

Good breakfast menu, convenient to the square downtown, especially if staying in la Fonda :)

Kathy Litton

Wonderful sandwiches & pastries

Mikhail Bazhenov

If you want a boiled latte and microwaved quiche - welcome! Otherwise, find a better place to eat.

Pat Larson

Visiting from out of town. Excellent food. Friendly service. Priced appropriately. The restaurant was decorated with any objects d'art. Fun to look while awaiting lunch.

Thomas Rolen

Pretty expensive, food is good but not worth the prices.

Ed Murphy

We took a few moments from touring the Santa Fe historic district to pause for a bit of refreshment on a particularly hot day, and The French Pastry Shop really hit the spot. We were pleased to enjoy a cooling lemonade and iced tea. My wife had a Spinach and Chicken Crepe, I a Croque Monsieur: both just enough to get us fueled up for more adventures. Service was very good, atmosphere was quite pleasant. A good choice for a break in a day filled with adventure.

Zoe Lipscomb

Good food and a cute atmosphere.


Stopped at this establishment for lunch while we were shopping on the plaza. The French onion soup was amazing! And I also had a half sandwich with it that was simple yet super tasty with bread that was spectacular. Others at the table had quiche and a croque. The atmosphere is nice but the restaurant is very tight. I would not recommend it for wheelchair accessible. It was very crowded when we were there and it is a tiny place. Kid friendly. Has two entrances, one from the street and the other from inside the La Fonda Hotel. Pastry selection was out of this world with so many yummy choices, some with fresh fruit, crepes, tarts and puffs.

Y. Quek

The French would not be too pleased that this establishment bears their name. The food was quite meh, and there is a cutthroat edge to their service. The french onion soup, served in slightly bigger than a knuckle-sized bowl, was $7.50! It has to be said, however, that the soup was the only truly tasty item out of all that we ordered - funnily enough the cheese they use in the crepes is of a far inferior quality to that in the soup. 18% service charge, rounded up, was auto-added to the bill.

Sarah R

A perfect place for savory and sweet!! A must stop for Santa Fe.

Carlos Fierro

Best pastries in Santa Fe! Crepes where amazing and service was the best! Definitely a must when in Santa Fe.

Anthony Scott

You can only pay with cash, which seems unusual in this day and age. However, the French onion soup and the quiche Lorraine was delicious. They offered many different pastries, which also looked very good. The restaurant was very busy, so people must really like it.

Nicole Shipp

Cash only! This cozy little pastry shop is divine! Crepes are to die for! I ate their 2 days in a row!

melissa fox

Yuck. Ordered the crepes with chicken mushroom and spinach. It was canned mushroom soup and frozen spinach. The spinach was glopped in a large clump in the middle, still frozen and one bite of chicken. It made us both gag. Tried the French opinion soup too, it was a gross salt bomb. Skip it - there are much better places to eat in the plaza.

Breanna Forni

This place is awesome. Don't listen to the naysayers. That being said, you come here for a reason. Pastry. They should just call it The French Pastry Shop, that's all that matters. I think the quiche is well done and our sweet crepes have always been great, the pastries though, that's where it's at! Not to mention, the ambiance. It's so quaint, welcoming and casual. It's something nice and different from the usual Santa Fe. We always make at least one breakfast stop here when we visit (usually before mass, when itsi quiet) and I'd recommend it to anyone as long as they understand that this is why you come here.

Natale M

Good atmosphere, but not very French. Pastries are expensive and mine was not very fresh. I had to cut it with a knife and needed my hot tea to chew it.

Joe Vandegriff

Signs at entrance say “Cash Only”. So complaining about it in a review? Quiche Lorain was good. Can’t speak for sandwiches. Pastries I had were wonderful.

Nook Sitsiinineez

Still dreaming about the Black Forest cake fest

Lauren Butterfield

$15 for a crepe, bad service.

Nathan Etherington

Had since French onion soup and it was delicious. My wife had the spinach quiche and enjoyed it as well.

Patricia Downing

Great food and coffee, and cool atmosphere, but very small and tight. Not handicap accessible.

Angelah Farah

The coffee great the people lovely service 100

Danielle Duran

I have been eating at The French Pastry Shop since I was a child. Their quality has never wavered. They still also only take cash. Their French onion soup is the only great French onion soup in Santa Fe and better than any I have had anywhere. Crepes, quiche, sandwiches, coffee, lemonade, desserts. All are terrific.

Bhavisha Patel

This place is horrible, there are so many better places close to here.

Rosalin Roche

Over priced! Cash only. Not what my husband and I expected at all! Fresh fruit was nice but the crepe was not incredible, only edible.

Kayla Smith

The food is good but not great. It's cash only, which is annoying enough that I won't return.

Noranik Z

Lovely desserts along with a great staff! Best coffee in town plus they open at 6:30am for the early birds!

Alyson Ayotte

Dont miss this little gem food was awesome

mikey b

Very good food!! A relaxing place to sit and enjoy your time. Great service.

Victoria B.

The quiche wasn't as flavorful as I'm used to, but the crepe was delicious. We loved that the fruit isn't smothered in goo - it's literally fresh fruit in a crepe. It was very refreshing and light.

Ashly Kareema

Odd that they are a cash only business, nonetheless......The food and desert is mediocre at best, nothing to write home about, service is wonderful though. As far as French cuisine goes in Santa Fe, there are better options. From my experience this place is a bit overpriced compared to the two other “French” restaurants I’ve been to in Santa Fe, especially when considering the food quality. They often run out of things quickly, although I have visited on a few occasions at different times throughout the I am not sure if they “ran out” that fast or they just have not restocked yet.

Your Nightmare

This business does not accept credit/debit cards. Only cash or check. The coffee was good. The owner and employees are really nice people.

Karen Vidrio-Aguirre

Delicious Nutella and strawberries crepe. Giving 4 stars because I've never paid $15 for one.

Kimberly Engelking

I have been going to the restaurant for years. The food is always delicious, the servers are quick and friendly. I love the Mushroom Chicken Crepes and the pastries.

Natale Michaud

Very overpriced. The cheese danish was tough and dry. Needed a knife to cut it and glad I had that small cup of hot tea to go with it. Atmosphere was cozy and comfortable, but nothing really French about the place.

Karen Goldman

Mediocre at best. I'm not one for bad reviews, but save your $ and try a different place. We had a couple of disappointing sandwiches and a salad. The table next to us left all their food and drinks, said it was the worst food they'd had in Santa Fe.
