To be fair one server shouldn't ruin the experience. We stopped in for breakfast. I was asked if I'd like some coffee after being seated, and the wait-person returned with coffee in hand. Without looking she plopped the coffee on the table spilling it and just kept on walking. The person who took our order apologized and did her best... More

Stopped for breakfast and was treated like a returning friend even though it was my first visit. The breakfast was perfect and I will return when I am in the area.

Santa Maria is not know for it's food. This restaurant is clean, very friendly staff and the food is good to excellent depending on your choice. Prices are very reasonable. The food is very fresh. I've only eaten breakfast and lunch here and each were excellent! I've come when the place was packed and the service was still excellent.

The food was excellent as usual. Only place we eat when traveling to or through Santa Maria. The waitresses are friendly, make sure you always have water and check back to see if everything is ok. Highly recommend this restaurant.

We visited Santa Maria for a 3 day weekend, and tried The Pantry on a Saturday morning. At 8am, we got right in because the place wasn't busy at all. The waitress never cracked a smile from start to finish. The food was mediocre at best. If this is one of the best choices in Santa Maria for breakfast, the... More

My adult children frequent he pantry so we all met there for breakfast. First of all beware, it is very crowded on the Saturday we visited. This is a local spot so I assumed the food must be at least decent, also based on the congestion out the front door. After a 10 min wait we were seated and ordered.... More

Even though this quintessential American restaurant is not located on Main Street, it has all the ambience of "Main Street USA." The wait-persons are jocular and friendly, and everyone is treated like a regular. The menu is extensive and the presentation is excellent. There are good specials every day. They will cook to order and you can send food back... More

My biggest problem is (and I know because I eat breakfast out alot) the cooks don't understand the diffrence between cooking an omlett and scrambled eggs. Everytime I get the scrambled eggs they are overcooked. I have sent them back a... More
