We eat here every time we come to Santa Fe. The food is always excellent, and the wait staff a pleasure. We've also gotten hooked on their chocolate-pinion coffee. Great place to start your day!

After a short wait, we were treated to a down home breakfast experience. The "Huevos Rancheros", a traditional Mexican breakfast for generations, were superb! The red chili salsa was exquisite; one can taste every delicious ingredient as it dissolves in your palate for a rich yet mild flavor. An absolute must for breakfast connoisseurs! Bon appetite!!

We ate here every day walking over from the El Rey - we've tried breakfast, lunch, and dinner. There's a reason there's always a wait! Great New Mexican home-cooking, huge portions, THE best coffee, and enchilladas to die-for. We always make a stop on our almost-yearly trips to Santa Fe!

We were supposed to go to another breakfast spot that didn't open till 9A, so we opted for the Pantry which was a food blessing. There wasn't a long wait. It has a great diner feel. The service was right on! We never were lacking in any attention. Coffee cups and water were filled at all times. We were checked... More

There are three nearly identical restaurants in Santa Fe (same owner maybe?), The Pantry, Flying Tortilla, and Los Amigos. They all have pretty much the same menu. But The Pantry, being closer to downtown is slightly more expensive, tends to be much louder on the inside, and there is usually a wait to get in. I think you are better... More

My husband and I visited Pantry Restaurant due to the good reviews in TripAdvisor. Nothing special about the food.

We want to show everyone who comes in a 5-star meal so I'm disappointed we weren't able to wow you, Jeannette. They say you're only as good as your last at bat but, as you mentioned, I think we can do better, and I'd love the opportunity to try the next time you're in town. Hope you'll consider giving us...

We're all about a hearty, home-cooked plate of food and I'm so glad we were able to deliver, Kara. I'm particularly happy to hear you had great service to match a delicious plate of food -- in our book, it's not a fantastic meal unless you've got both. Thanks for the great review. I hope we'll have the chance to... More

You can't go wrong! There is nothing bad on the menu! If in doubt ask your waiter for his recommendation and you'll have a wonderful meal. I had the stuffed sopapilla and my husband had the combination. Both were wonderful!
