Clafoutis, a pastry shop and café, will take you to Paris. Owners Anne-Laure and Philippe Ligier run this bustling boulangerie/patisserie. She runs the front of the house greeting customers with a cheery "Bonjour!" while he's in the kitchen baking the fresh breads and pastries they're known for. Breakfast can be as simple as a croissant teamed with coffee, espresso hot chocolate or even a bowl of café au lait. If you want something more, there are egg choices including real French omelets, crepes, Croque Monsieur or Madame and Les Gauffres (large House Waffles). Parking is a bit challenging here. Arrive at 7am when they open or mid-morning after the early rush. If you're staying downtown, walking is a great option; on foot it's about 15 minutes from the Plaza.

- Breakfast: "If you're a beignet fan, they make them on Saturday mornings. Note that the café closed for a few weeks each winter while the Ligiers go home to France."
- Best for Breakfast Because: Sometimes you want a simple, fast and delicious breakfast that is 180 degrees from American style or New Mexican. Their pastries are topnotch.
