We knew the minute we walked in that we would like this place! Great local feel, very friendly staff and coffee almost as soon as we were seated. My husband was very happy with his huevos rancheros and I enjoyed my omelette. My potatoes were cold when they arrived but once I saw the size of the omelette I knew... More

We had a wonderful breakfast at the Pantry. We wanted some authentic southwestern foods and we got it. It's a very pleasant place with a wonderful quilted art piece on one wall and kid designed plates with cheerful colors. The staff was attentive and friendly. Lots of breakfast choices and some specials like pumpkin pancakes. We had the breakfast burritos... More

There is one thing that is a universal truth, restaurants with passionate owners serve the best food. The Pantry is no exception. They turned down a spot on Diner's Drive Ins and Dives because the owner refused to shut down his restaurant to his regular customers for two days. This restaurant is filled with comfort food of both the american... More

Two of us visited for dinner with taco salads for each of us. One beef, one chicken. Ground beef tasted slow-cooked; the chicken was nicely grilled. Served in a homemade tortilla shell that was wonderfully fresh and crisp! Family-owned, welcoming place. Recommend!

This family owned restaurant came highly recommended on tripadvisor, and the reviews don't lie! It is a quaint little place, only a few tables and a bar, but don't be fooled, The Pantry has the best food for miles. The enchiladas and tacos were the best we had ever eaten, and the so called shredded brisket taco was amazing!! Service... More

My conference hotel was just ten blocks from the Pantry on Cerrillos Road so I dined twice at one of my favorite Santa Fe eateries. Dinner was a carnitas burrito and breakfast sweet potato pancakes. This homey restaurant always offer good local food at great prices with attentive service. The atmosphere doesn't draw the Lexus-driving crowd. Just dine with local... More

Just had supper at The Pantry. All we have to say is it was amazing food at a reasonable price. I had the fish tacos and my husband had the pork adovada. Both were excellent. We are even considering a return trip for breakfast.
