We are humbled and honored to have been voted Best of Santa Fe for 19 years straight. We also been featured on the Food Network, chosen by Giada de Laurentiis, featured in Conde Nast Traveller, Fodor's and many other media outlets. We believe that the mood and positive vibe of an establishment makes its food taste better. We celebrate natural ingredients and old fashioned artisan baking in an atmosphere of charm, delight and integrity. 

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


The Maven began fifty years ago as a tiny Santa Fe pastry shop known for brownies, hot chocolate and late night poetry readings. We have grown into a artisanal bakery that provides deliciousness by shipping all over the USA, as well as our local Santa Fe customers from our shop. We have a full service restaurant open for brunch, breakfast and lunch where customers have a view into the bakery in action. Please come visit when you are in town! 


The Chocolate Maven is owned by husband and wife team, executive chefs Dharm Andrew Segal and Gurukiren Kaur Ramos who began baking in their home garage, and have developed the establishment, services and menu for the past 27 years.
