Southwest meets diner

Excellent service and tasty, non-boring selections. One of our favorite meals in Santa Fe! Plenty of parking at the restaurant.

We found this restaurant on a Sunday when our other favorite place was closed in Santa Fe. Their shredded beef tacos are wonderful! They came with a side of beans and rice- everything was great!

I've been having breakfast at the Pantry on and off ever since moving to Santa Fe 15 years ago. The Pantry is one of those old-time diners which serve New Mexican comfort food. It is quick and GOOD!

We stopped in because of the reviews and weren't disappointed. I had the brisket dinner and my husband had the brisket quesadilla and both were very good. Next time we'll try the breakfast.

Great breakfast...perfect amount of heat from the local chilies. The sopapillas are great and the coffee is hot and full flavored. Can't ask for a better breakfast in Santa Fe

We would recommend the Pantry. The food was good and reasonably priced and the service was exceptionally friendly. It was very conveniently located right next to the Hotel El Rey, where we were staying.
