I go here regularly -- most often to take out, but dining in is good as well. Everyone there is super-friendly and helpful, the food is great, prices are pretty reasonable for the high quality of the food.

Don't you love this name? Doesn't it conjure up warm homey thoughts of a richly stocked place to discover good things? This little jewel in the modest village of Washington is worth seeking out. It is perhaps both an equal culinary and visual feast. A richly stocked cheese bar, sweets offering, salads galore, spices and kitchen utensils of all varieties,... More

Expensive but decent food. They have removed the server incentive by automatically adding tip to all checks. That said I have never had bad service. From a food standpoint I have not had anything that I would term outstanding or poor. My wife is a baker and rated the Quiche very good. I always enjoy the chicken salad sandwich.

Another excellent meal here. The farm to table foods are great. I had a pea soup like no other I have ever eaten. Their crab cake is excellent with a lot of pure crab. Just a perfect lunch.

Great soups, fresh sandwiches, many vegetarian options. Great place to take brunch or lunch to go. We enjoyed the fresh turkey sandwich and tomato soup. Very friendly staff.

We have not ever had a bad meal here. Nancy and Michael, owners, have been owners for decades and maintain their very high standards. Gift shop surrounds the eating space. Food, service and gifts are all very high end.

Tiny little tucked-away, but absolutely delicious, fresh and interesting meals. Wish they were also open for dinner! Great to get take-away for a picnic when the restaurant is full.

A hidden treasure. This has been one of my family's favorite spots for sandwiches, soups and salads. Our ultimate favorite from The Pantry is their coconut cake... a must! Ordering take-out can sometimes get cramped and chaotic on a Saturday morning. Always have had great service, great food and an all around excellent experience when dining in.
