My favorite place for sandwiches, soups, and breakfast in Santa Fe. The bread is to die for. The meat servings on the sandwiches are generous. The crepes are great. The specials are always good. You get the picture. Be sure to get there before you are hungry because you'll probably have to wait a bit. I don't think they're open for dinner but make sure you hit this place at least once if you visit Santa Fe.

We went to Clafoutis for breakfast our first morning in Santa Fe, and went there almost every day during our 1-week stay. The freshest, lightest croissants this side of Paris. For the pastries and other baked goods, you'll want to try one of everything. We ordered the mini baguette ham sandwiches to go, and ate them for lunch as we traveled about Santa Fe. It's not on the menu, but they have a great bowl of fresh fruit - cut fresh daily, and different fruits in it from day to day. Daily crepes are delicious. Warm friendly services. The husband runs the kitchen and bakery, his wife runs the front and greets everyone with a smile, and their daughter provides friendly and efficient table service. There is a french bakery and breakfast place on the Plaze at LaFonda hotel - while good, it can not compare to Clafoutis. I wish we had a place like Clafoutis where we live. It's that good.

Claufoutis serves excellent, authentic French cuisine. The wait staff always have a smile and are very attentive . In my opinion, the lattes are the best in town. The only challenge is the location - the restaurant is small in size and there is always a line on the weekends (though this is typical for Santa Fe and speaks to the establishment's popularity).

We went to Clafoutis on our way out of Santa Fe on a Monday morning, which I suggest because there was not a crowd. The breakfast was amazing, especially the croissants, they were perfect. The crepes are an excellent choice as well. The cafe au lait was the perfect balance of coffee and milk. The pastries we got to-go were all delicious and with the freshest ingredients. The prices were unbelievable for a place of this high quality. Service was good, but not great, but not an issue—they only had one high chair.

This French cafe is a little way from the Plaza but worth the drive/walk. Pastries, au laits, sandwiches and salads - all with authentic French ingredients and preparation. Our last taste of Santa Fe on the way out of town - delicieuse!
