©2019 Chocolate Maven Bakery & Cafe | 821 W. San Mateo Road, Santa Fe, NM 87505  USA | 



The Maven is a must see for Santa Fe visitors and a familiar spot for our regulars and locals. We feel honored to have been featured on the Food Network, Conde Nast Traveller, Fodors and many other media outlets.


The Maven started fifty years ago as a tiny Santa Fe pastry shop known for brownies, hot chocolate and late night poetry readings. Now we have grown into a full service restaurant, featuring natural food, awesome atmosphere, and an award winning bakery. 


Our company culture is one of goodwill, good food and the togetherness that food encourages. Our success is because of our people. We have a profound team of talent and we are always striving to improve. Many or us have been with the company for decades and more recently new bright faces have joined us. 


For the past 24 years the Maven has been nurtured and developed by husband and wife team, owners and executive chefs Dharm and Gurukiren Khalsa (Andy Segal and Virginia Ramos) who began baking in their home garage in 1993, and have grown the establishment, services and menu over the years.
