Old Fashioned Comfort food at fair prices

The Pantry offers an eclectic menu of home style cooking including great omelets, generous sandwiches and tasty diner platters. Kids and Senior menus make it a good choice for multi-generational get-togethers. We go there often.

I visited this restaurant for lunch with my girlfriend; I've always felt you can best judge a restaurant by their Soup du' Jour and The Pantry has delicious soup! I got the Beef Stroganoff, which was served complete with a dollop of sour cream and fresh chopped green onions... Tender chunks of beef and homemade noodles - Yum! It was... More

The Pantry has a huge variety of things to choose from on the menu. I've been there with my family several times and the food was outstanding every time. It's right across the street from the Santa Maria Inn and I highly recommend it to everyone.

Stopped in for lunch and there was a line. Only had to wait ten minutes though. The service was great and the food quite good. It has the ambiance of a chains like Sherrys or Denny's, but the food is much better. I had a delicious Turkey Melt. Good selections for kids.

If you're looking for place that hits all the comfort food buttons, this is the place to be! Their waffles are excellent, they make their own corned beef hash and their poached eggs on the benedicts are perfect. The staff is friendly and accommodated all our special requests. Ate there for breakfast every day we were in Santa Maria, CA!... More

You can get lunch at breakfast which is great for my family who doesnt like breakfast foods. The service is always good and they have alot of variety in the menu to accomodate all types of personal tastes.
