Clafoutis French Bakery & Restaurant
402 N Guadalupe, Santa Fe, New Mexico 87501
A Parisienne couple, Anne-Laure and Philippe Ligier, owned an Albuquerque bakery for years. After a brief return to their native France they returned to New Mexico, this time to Santa Fe. They opened Clafoutis in 2007 and caught on almost from day one. It was the first of the new wave of European bakeries that sprung up in town. Anne- Laure works the counter and greets customers with a cheerful, “Bonjour.” It makes you want to speak French. Philippe, a classically trained baker, is tucked away in the kitchen plying his craft and he’s a master at it. This little slice of the French countryside offers breakfast, lunch and an array of fresh baked goods from Madeline’s, to baguettes to decadent French dessert. Walk if you can. Parking at peak times can be challenging.
