This is a hugely popular place to get a good breakfast. Nothing fancy. Just good huevos or a good breakfast burrito. You won't leave hungry.

This is possibly one of the best Mexican Restaurants located in Santa Fe, New Mexico. We happened upon this restaurant and boy did we strike GOLD. I had the burrito avocavo. Delicious!!!

Had an early dinner here. Service was attentive and quick. The agave margarita was not cold and way too sweet. The pinto beans were fresh and tasty, but the red sauce on the enchiladas was a bit on the bland side. The rice was tasteless. Probably not worth a return visit.

Though we're happy you enjoyed our customer service, it's surprising to hear you weren't a fan of your margarita or red sauce. It sounds like you may have caught us on an off-night, and it's a shame that this was your impression of us. I hope you'll give us another chance to show you what we're all about! Best, Michael...

I ordered the stuffed french toast and it was basically amazing. My husband ordered the cakes and eggs combo -- good pancakes and great eggs. Don't order the chocolate milk though; it's not very good. It's a pretty small spot so if you have a large group you'll need to wait a while but it's well worth it.

Had the Pantry for lunch...it has the same name as the landmark restaurant here in LA, but obviously California places get more attention than they should. This place was my first intro to NM style food. While it looks like your typical Mexican menu, the food is far from it. I enjoyed my meal, but even better, I had my... More

The Pantry is one of our favorite restaurants in Santa Fe. You can't beat their New Mexican food. I had carne adovada. My wife had chicken enchiladas. Both were great. The adovada sauce was spicy, smokey and very tasty. The green and red chili sauces on the enchiladas were equally good. The waitstaff is attentive and helpful. You can't beat... More

Everything on the menu looked good and everything we ate tasted good! This place is popular, especially on weekends, so expect to wait a bit but it moves fast. We were given a little pager and sat on the porch for about 10 minutes. Love the selections for breakfast and lunch and the value is superb. Servers are efficient and... More
