Ate breakfast here and what a hidden treasure! Baked goods are a sight to behold! We sat a table that looked into the working bakery and what a treat that was! Food was delicious and portions very generous. Sweet waitress too!

A bakery, cafe, coffee place. Went to find it since it is poorly located, a bit outside of town, on a side street, and little parking available. Hopefully, that might be what keeps it good? Well, nope. We stopped for coffee, bought bread and pie....More

We spent the night in Santa Fe recently and planned to go to breakfast on Sunday at another restaurant, but when we arrived it was closed (even though the Google listing said open). I quickly did a search of "best bakeries near me" and the...More
