Breakfast, Brunch & Lunch

For every occasion


The Maven is an artisanal bakery that ships delicious baked goods all over the USA and provides scrumptious brunch and pickup options for our local Santa Fe customers. We started 30 years ago baking honey sweetened cinnamon rolls in our home kitchen. Since then we have grown to become an award winning bakery and a “must see” Santa Fe restaurant where customers have a view into the bakery in action.

From the people
This is the best carrot cake I’ve ever had, and I have tried at least 4 claiming to be the best in NYC.

OMG the Pecan Pie! So delicious! I bought at least 3 when I was visiting.
— Michelle D.
It’s a chocolate factory, a bakery, and a cafe. This place is super busy, but it is also worth it to wait for a table at the cafe. The plates are huge and you can see the chefs making the food. It’s always so much fun to guess what they’re making
— Queen Blossom
❤️ love this place
— R roverT
The place is quaint and cute and you can see the people making the pastries behind a window. So Cool! The service was lovely and the food was even more amazing. The chilaquiles were delicious! And the pastries were perfection. The most beautiful vanilla cupcake with a rose on top. Wow!
— Yeny Flor
Great service. Every item is clearly handcrafted and packs a lot of flavor.

Who We Are


We never use bleached flour or hydrogenated oils. We serve consciously sourced ingredients in our restaurant, including organic eggs, organic coffee and iced tea and free range meats.

Exceptional people

Our company culture is one of goodwill, good food and the togetherness that food encourages. We are blessed with a profound team, many of who have been with the company for decades. And we are always striving to improve.

Celebration focused

We believe in celebrating life and put that energy into everything we make. There is nothing more important in this world than gathering with our loved ones and celebrating with laughter and good food.

"Foodies arrive early for decadent breakfasts - strawberries-and-cream waffles, cheesy eggsadillas - and up-close views of the bakers prepping food behind a large glass wall."

“Although the name of this cheery bakery suggests sweets, and it does sweets especially well, Chocolate Maven produces impressive savory breakfast and lunch fare.”
