Soup in a pumpkin – I am actually from Utah, but I can tell you, they have an interesting menu.

Sort of remember that it was just a bit pricy for the food.

That Pumpkin soup they served when I was there, was just to die for, pretty good stuff. I don't know if they serve that anymore, but nummy.

Sophisticated dinner menu – I'm constantly amazed at the people who trash Cafe Pasquale's dinner menu--I always take out-of-towners there and I don't think I've had a bad meal. Coming from Los Angeles I can appreciate the mix of pan-asian dishes with New Mexican and American. Terrific desserts, I would recomment the roasted peach ice cream any time. Service is usually good, only downside is the small restaurant sometimes makes for tight quarters and it can be hard to get reservations. The community table can be a good way to meet other people from all over.

Resting on its Laurels – I have dined at Cafe Pasqual's several time over the years. My most recent experience (1/08) may be my last. Although we were greeted by a friendly host and seated relatively promptly, our server was brusque and unhelpful, seemingly resentful that he had to serve customers at all. The food was tasty, but only in an ordinary way. None of the dishes our party of five ordered piqued anyone's interest. Certainly no entrees justified their high prices. Established restaurants in Santa Fe sometimes rest on their laurels and lose their way, perhaps seduced by the ready money of the tourist trade. This fate, alas, seems to have befallen Cafe Pasqual's.

mediocre at best – Prior to this we have had lunch there and it was fine. We recently had dinner there and the dinner menu is totally different from the lunch menu. It was quite bad and way overpriced! Sweet pork for tacos, fish wrapped in banana leaves that tasted like they had been wrapped in grass clippings. They cannot pull off their chic menu. Stick to breakfast and lunch.

Creative Cuisine – My sister and I passed by this restaurant several times and there was always a line to get in. We finally stopped by and made reservations for dinner and it was delicious! The cuisine is very creative, with organic ingredients used as much as possible. The portions were adequate, and the staff very friendly. Our waiter expertly steered us to just the right dishes, and his wine suggestions were right on. We will definitely return to this spot on our next visit.

Tourists and locals endure long lines for hearty, Southwestern breakfasts. – The Scene
Lines form early at this cozy restaurant. Inside, hand-painted Mexican tiles, strings of chili peppers and bright murals framed by white lights add to the festive atmosphere. Locals sit side-by-side with tourists at a large community table in the heart of the restaurant. Others nestle into tiny, wooden tables near expansive windows. Friendly and efficient servers help maintain a laid-back vibe in the always-packed restaurant.

The Food
While the cafe serves a splendid lunch and dinner, it's the morning meal that warrants intimidating lines. Hearty breakfasts are brushed with regional and Latin American flavor, and a half order is usually plenty. Breakfast quesadillas consist of scrambled eggs, Jack cheese, guacamole and apple-smoked bacon or chorizo stuffed in crisp whole-wheat tortillas. Papas fritas suffer from potato overkill, but huevos motulenos, with eggs, corn tortillas, black beans, sautéed bananas, feta, peas, roasted jalapeno salsa and chili is anything but bland.

Best breakfast in Santa Fe – Wow! I was told by friends this was a breakfast "must," and they were right. The trout hash with poached eggs that my husband ordered was heavenly. They will make a half order for half-price plus $1, so I ordered a half-portion of the chorizo egg burrito. It was still large enough for 2 to share; spicy, flavorful and a good buy. We ate here our last morning in Santa Fe; had I known how good it was, I would have eaten here every morning!

Go elsewhere! – There are so many wonderful restaurants in this magical city . . .choose one but not this one for dinner. The menu promised more than the food could deliver (note: Stay away from "Pigs and Figs") Have an over priced glass of wine at the communal table to meet someone interesting if you must go.

overpriced tourist trap – The food is distinctly average-to-poor in a town where you can get great food in many, many restaurants. And it's extremely overpriced. The $25 salmon I ordered was still frozen in the middle. Good wine selection, though.

A Very Expensive Breakfast – I like Cafe Pasquals, but it is ridiculously expensive. Breakfast for two is $40 with tip, a little crazy when all you are eating is eggs, toast and bacon (which BTW is $5 for a side order!!!). I love tradition and old places but for the cost this place is off limits!!!
