I went to the Chocolate Maven for breakfast this morning. It's a perennial favorite in Santa Fe. I love the German chocolate cake here! I didn't have my camera with me today so the photos below are taken with my phone.
Today the chef's special was a crab cake sandwiched in poached eggs with grilled artichokes. The presentation was beautiful, but I don't think I'll order it again. It was salty and not as tasty as the crab cakes in Baltimore.
It's a fun place to go! There's a big plate glass window in front of the bakery and you can watch the bakers roll the dough into these delicate shell-like creations. Or you can go up the spiral staircase and sit upstairs.
His hands moved so quickly. It's like having an individual sculpture made just for you!
Yum, have a croissant. Try an almond, chocolate, plain or sun dried tomato one.
