“There are not too many places that combine Latin and French cooking and they come up with some good stuff. My personal favorite is their Eggs Benedict and their French Bakery is outstanding.”

Bar
“One of the go-to spots for late night drinks and dinner. They have a decently sized menu with several different meat options. (pork, beef, seafood, steak, chicken, etc.) Children friendly but I don't recommend taking the children at night because it's more of a bar scene past the dinner hour. Dog friendly area. Part of the building is one of the oldest standing structures in Taos and is said to be haunted!”
