My Husband and I were driving to the Eastern Sierras from Los Angeles. We wanted to eat in Bishop and we have been to the main popular restaurants and we were not impressed. We found the Petite Pantry on Trip Advisor. I ordered the Fried Chicken and it was tasty and flaky. My Husband loved the hot chocolate and the... More

Person who seated us was very friendly. Brought our drinks right away and took our order right away. Entertained us with stories about his life. Unsolicited stories. I was afraid to touch anything. It didn't look or feel clean. I ordered breakfast and the smell coming off the food made me sick. I couldn't eat much of any of the... More

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...

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.
