My favorite place in Santa Fe for breakfast. The rellano omelet is my favorite. Started out rough. I guess our waitress , Ivette- was having a bad morning or maybe there was just a language barrier but our order was not correct she gave me a Durango omelet instead and my daughter's order was not right either and then she...

Been to The Pantry a couple of times. The lunch and dinner meals seem to be centered on meat dishes. As a vegetarian the dinner plate was okay. I have many other favorites for standard New Mexican, certainly not bad in anyway. Just never became a regular favorite. The breakfast however was another matter. Really great homefries, fast service and... More

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.

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!
