A true French boulangerie pâtisserie - a rare experience indeed with prices that are correct and a brilliant selection of pastries. I worked in a bakery in France for many years until recently and haven’t been able to go back for a visit because of Covid - so being in Clafoutis and seeing a sandwich on a baguette with just ham, butter and cheese literally brought tears to my eyes (ridiculous, i know). I tried that croissant aux amandes briochée and found it divine. The brioche was also delightful. If I ever move to Santa Fe, fingers crossed that they’re hiring because this place is a dreeeeam.

Everything I had was amazing! Service and pastries were excellent! The price isn't too steep either, I ordered a lot of stuff and my total was under $30 without the tip.I ordered the Provençale omelette without ham, it was a good portion, came with sliced French bread and butter. I had some left over for later. I also ordered the onion soup, which I was told is sometimes made with chicken broth, I got excited for a moment as I can't eat beef. French onion soup is usually made with beef broth, it was made with beef broth. Bummer, it looked really good.From the bakery, I ordered a slice of raspberry tarte, a palmier, 3 flavors of macarons (pistachio, lemon, and coffee; coffee was my favorite), a mini lemon Danish, a mini coconut Danish, and a coconut meringue. They were all so good, I have to go back and get more!

The food was just ok. I ordered the country plate and requested the peach tart. The peach tart was the best part of it all.My companion ordered the salad charlotte and he enjoyed it. As for my lunch plate I was visually pleased to receive what appeared to be a French bento box style presentation. I haven't seen this before, it was unique. Then my eyes were quite put off by the horrendous appearance of the pate square. It tasted better than it looked but it sure was gross looking. I expected more brie and butter so the modest portions were not to my liking either. All the food was good to great. I definitely don't like pearl onions and I learned that today. Our service was nice at the table. The host was not welcoming at the door. We waited about 15-20 minutes to be seated. Four of the six quiches were sold out for the day by 1:45pm. Unisex or unmarked bathrooms were a nice find.

A petite slice of la France in Santa Fe. You can eat in the cafe or buy bread or patisseries to take home (savory sandwiches too.) Staff is very nice. Highly recommend!

Stop doing for breakfast. Their bakery and patisserie items looked amazing! And smelled even better! I got the omelette with tomatoes and cheese and herbs and Ham.It was phenomenal! I don't get to eat out that much because I have severe dietary restrictions so it was really nice to find something that I could have.the only suggestion that I would make it would be really nice if they had like a Brie and fruit plate. Because I would totally buy that

Pastries are amazing, however the croissant breakfast sandwich wasn't seasoned at all. Green chillies were tasty but very few. Lots of egg, but very little ham.

We are from Kansas City and have loved this place! We tell everyone who travels here to be sure to come to Clafoutis. It's been a while since we've been back and didn't realize there was a new location. What a fabulous space. It has such a great vibe. We had to get our order to go as we are traveling, but hubby and I agreed next time we will stay and dine in the patio. Food was fantastic as always. We got 4 different pastries. Wish we could have gotten more. The family still owns and runs the place. It was nice to talk with them again after a long absence. You are missing out if you don't add Clafoutis to your dining experience in Santa Fe. Wish I get here more often.

Visited during the virus period. Doing OK with only takeout. Probably the best roast beef sandwich I've ever had. Cuban was also excellent. Baguettes were outstanding. We'll be back.

Thrilled they stayed open for curbside/take out. Best baguette sandwiches in the US! Pastries taste exactly like the best bakeries in France. Their popularity is Very much deserved. Keep up the great work!

Wow this place was just great. I was there this morning, desperately looking for an early breakfast in this COVID-19 world as I navigate from Phoenix to Vermont. I walked in unannounced and was blown away by BEAUTIFUL things behind the counter, and the various pastries and breads all looked amazing as well (see what I did there?). Sorry, sorry - I'll simmer down. Seriously though, the ladies who worked there were wonderful and tolerant of my indecision, the lox baguettes I got were fantastic, and the eponymous clafoutis was just incredible. Truly among the best French baked goods I've ever had, and I've had my share. Not sure when I'll be back in Santa Fe, but you'd best believe that I'll return to Clafoutis as soon as I get there!

Pastries and macaroons are delicious! Chai latte was not very good, it tasted very milky. Overall, still recommend for a sweet bite to eat.

Not much of a secret as I found this place at or near the top of several best places for breakfast in Santa Fe lists. They were right; a bright modern & rustic atmosphere greets you just as the smiling employees do. Everything on the menu sounds tempting and I look forward to returning to try more. The pastries, as expected, were absolutely fantastic. All the food was delicious and was brought out very quickly. Definitely worth a stop or a special trip.

My mom brought me here while visiting from out of town, and I am in LOVE. You can't help but buy from the case if you walk by, so I bought one of everything since I don't live nearby. My favorite was the blueberry madelines! It was so nice to see a mother-daughter duo behind the case. They were both so attentive to guests as they were coming and going in and out of the restaurant. Very engaging, welcoming, and their waitstaff was great too. I can't wait to come back and visit!

What a treat to find a special breakfast/lunch spot in Santa Fe. This is where you want to go when you want something without red or green chili. Excellent pastries, egg dishes, French toast, homemade granola. You'll want to buy cookies to go. Great coffee too!

The food, the service, the friendly smiles...were all a balm of fresh air. It felt so good to have a solid meal that tasted great without one green chile anywhere on the plate. A feat for sure in New Mexico, but Clafoutis has managed to bring a little slice of France to the southwest and I’m here for it.

2 stars because all other times my experience was good, otherwise they would get a lower rating. The problem is the service. I had been here several times and have to mention that The food here is ok, the bakery is good, prices are reasonable, service has been average. ...until last time, 2 days ago. Firstly, there was an obvious misunderstanding between me and the waitress. The place was crowded as usual and noisy, instead of coming closer by me to hear what i was saying, i had to scream and she couldn’t hear me well. Next, when the waitress brought our pastries on the plate, she lean over the plate rubbing her clothes all over one of the pastries. I took it back to the counter asking for another one and explain why. They were out of that particular kind, and I wasn’t offered another one instead, or taking it off the bill, or even a simple apology. The owner (the daughter) was standing there, listening, and said nothing... was very disappointed, especially when i liked this place. It seemed like they didn’t care at all, guess they have too many customers and can afford loosing one or two.

Excellent food, cozy place, and good staff.
The problem is, parking is ridiculous. The last 3 times I've been there, on a Wednesday, Friday and a Saturday, absolutely no parking. Parking not allowed at dry cleaners next door or the side streets. They used to have an auxiliary lot nearby but it isn't available any more.
I don't even bother to go any more because it's a waste of time. Darn shame.

Tiny little coffee shop and bakery with BIG flavor! Our table had the burrito in a jar, breakfast croissant and the ricotta pancakes... they were all delicious! Parking was tricky but so worth it. Great service and local atmosphere!

Breakfast here this morning with my oldest daughter and here road crew Hugh, H4, and Maddie. Not sure why we chose Dolina's but I'm glad we did. Everything was delicious and service had that personal touch going for it. The floor space is a littlle tight and parking scarce however. Make sure to leave with something from the pastry case. I chose the Meyer Lemon tort which --admittedly - I was expecting a custard. What I got was actually lemons in a pie. A bit tart for me but they made it work.

This is an excellent French bakery. Definitely recommend checking it out if you're in the area! Pros: - Beautiful cozy vibes - Quick service and friendly staff - Separate bakery and sit-down area so you can stop for a meal or just take a baked good and coffee to go - Large selection of food items. Our party ordered the French plate, ABC omlette and the croque madame. We didn't get to try any pastries this time but that could take several more trips. Cons: - This isn't really a con, more of a thing to be aware of. If you come on weekends, parking fills up very fast. We arrived at 9am on a sunday, right before the rush and there was a line out the door which apparently is very common! Guess it comes with being a quality establishment

First time in SantaFe and this restaurant was suggested by a friend that lived here. BEST....BREAKFAST....EVER! Food was superb, service excellent, and the bakery OMG, HEAVEN!

Such delicious baked goods and quiche! The coffee and espresso drinks are also great. The only downside is hours. They close at 4, and are not open on Sunday which is a bummer. Would be a wonderful place to have Sunday brunch.

The southwests best kept secret, we discovered Claufoutis 5 years ago around the same time of year Valentines week . You see there's magic in Santa Fe for couples and especially at Claufoutis Restaurant. The French have a way of speaking delicious, we hope you enjoy the restaurant as mush as we have over the years. Always delicious, try everything!!!

Fantastic!!! The Paprikash was delicious!!! It took me back into the childhood with the taste of the home cooked meal. Being a local I will go back for sure, can't wait to try all the other plates on their menu. The place is mall, cute and cozy! Strongly recommend it

Love this place! Food is so fresh and well prepared with a tremendous selection. Service is always spot on and attentive. Because it’s so popular there might be a wait, but we’ll worth it and you won’t be disappointed.
