Best Gluten Free Toast Ever

Of course I have only been "gluten free" a little over 6 months, but this toast was the best I've had so far. We had breakfast based on the recommendation of the campground at which we are staying.

After reading many of the reviews posted here, we decided to give The Pantry a try. We stopped by late on a Sunday afternoon, between the usual lunch and dinner times. This proved to be a good time to go as business was brisk yet tables were readily available. I ordered the Santa Fe brisket platter and my dining partner... More

On a snowy Saturday morning I walked in during a lull in business. Ordered the corned beef hash. This may be the most tender corned beef I've ever tasted, imbued with some traditional Southwestern flavors. Servers were all friendly, enthusiastic, and knew the menu very well. The Pantry ain't fancy but it's good, very good. Popular with locals and visitors... More

Close to the El Rey motel (a classic Route 66 motel), this small diner offers typical New Mexico food. The chilli was good (although all meat and no beans) as were the grilled pork chops. Beer and winery the glass and bottle which we have found is a bit unusual in this sort of places.

Another local restaurant. We had Sunday brunch--couldn't finish it. And the sopapillas were fantastic. Reasonably prices and very fast service. Fantastic chile rellenos. Yum.

Brought the family here while on vacation from California. I ordered the breakfast burrito, and it was pretty darn good. The green chili is one of the best in Santa Fe. The wife had a egg and home fries dish with red and green sauces, and she said both were excellent. My son ordered the french toast, and he was... More
