Came here for breakfast on a Saturday morning. There was a queue but looking at the dishes that were being served we decided to stay and wait for a table. Boy was it worth it. We ordered the breakfast burrito with sausage and the huevos rancheros. Both were massive portions and very tasty. Just the right amount of (green) chili,... More

I had one of the best meals I've ever had at Pantry Restaurant - the daily special of grilled medallions of tenderloin over a Dijon cream sauce with garlic mashed potatoes and sautéed spinach and roasted red bell peppers. I shared it with my daughter (who had a huge and very good breakfast burrito) and we'd give it a six... More

Just finished a breakfast burito - not so good. The red chile was nothing but powdered chili, a little flour and no flavor. The egg had an off flavor like the grill was dirty or they were burned. The beans were good, but for such a popular place it was disappointing.

Rita, I couldn't be more disappointed that your breakfast burrito didn't meet your expectations. The burrito you described doesn't sound like us at all, and I'm truly sorry you didn't receive the great burritos I know we're capable of! I hope you'll give us another chance to prove to you what we can do. Best wishes, Michael Singley, Owner More

This is a small diner, with good comfort food. I ordered the carne adovada, which had good red chile flavor. I find northern New Mexico versions of this dish to have more complex flavor (due to additional spices), but this was good.

This restaurant is very quaint. The wait was long but the food was good. I noticed that they seat the locals before the wait list. Be sure and order everything you want because service is non existent.

I never ever miss this place for their breakfast burritos with green chili and delicious potatoes. i have been there for supper as well, but breakfast is my favorite. Particularly the green chili... maybe best in town.

It's not "one of the best meals you've ever had in a restaurant" but the variety of meals, the overall quality of the food, the quick and friendly service make this a standout in Santa Fe. The servings are plentiful, the beer selection is good, and while small and awkward to park at, we make the effort every time we... More
