Quirky ambience (e.g. office chairs for seating), but INCREDIBLE food, and an eccentric owner/host/server/raconteur.

I've now been here a few times and every time, it does not disappoint. Immediately upon entering you are greeted with a smile and chit chat. All the tables have office chairs as their chairs and you are given homemade salsa and 2 kinds of chips, flour and corn (man those flour ones....think a tostada shell, are amazing) chips and... More

We went recently to the White Mountains across Bishop and had breakfast in a familiar-looking restaurant. It was the Petite Pantry. The place is intimate and full of pictures on the wall. The amount of the meals is great and the rest is going to be wrapped in tortilla to go. The coffee and food are good. It is one... More

We went to the restaurant for dinner while staying in Bishop enroute to Yosemite National Park. The restaurant has a homely feel, with family pictures and newspaper articles relating to the local football team the owners son plays for. We felt immmediately comfortable as soon as we were greeted at the door. The owners were very accommodating for my wife's... More

Friendly atmosphere, but fair food. The salsa was good, but they were out of guacamole. This was a cute local place, but I wouldn't return. Village inn cafe was around the corner, but apparently they're closed Mondays and Tuesdays to golf so beware if you walk two miles from town to breakfast there.

First, an oxymoron: This is a Mexican restaurant called The Petite Pantry. The name, legend holds, is a vestige of its previous ownership: a little old lady served lunch for a few hours each day, to her friends, and called it a restaurant. Just saying, IRS.... Anyhoo, husband and I stopped in here around 3pm, after finding the Burger Barn... More

We stopped into the Petite Pantry and found a lively and fun place with lots of family decor and very good food. "Papa" was charming and full of fun chatter while handling the rapid service of the large menu. Home cooking and generous portions, Locals and repeat customers are given extra attention. Breakfast all day, Too. Try it for some... More

The food has a home cooking feel, its not gourmet but its tasty with huge portions kinda of a play on words with the restaurant name. Its family operated and the owner is very friendly, the atmosphere is very unique and kinda of odd its not fancy but it has a cozy feel where you feel like family.
