Humble. Authentic. Excellent. My hubby brought me to the Pantry Restaurant the first time in 1990. His first meal was eaten there in the 60s, as a little boy, visiting Santa Fe for the first time.

Those of us who grew up in Santa Dr are wary about tourists finding this little gem of a cafe out on Cerrillos Road. I have come here for decades -- it has always had a great breakfast and my dad's Kiwanis club had their lunch meetings here for years. The chile is excellent and worth the visit alone. There...

I knew when we saw the line for breakfast that we would need to give this place a try. We went for dinner and we're not dissapointed. Definitely a mom & pop non-franchised place; everything was large portions, cooked fresh. Even for late on a Sunday night the service was prompt and friendly. DEFINITELY RETURNING.

Very popular restaurant from what the locals told us. We decided to have breakfast here upon recommendations from locals and family that had visited before. Great pancakes and eggs combo. Good value and fine food. Will try lunch or dinner the next time in Santa Fe.

We were a large group of 12, so had to wait for a table. That said, the food was good, the service was fine. This was a good value in Santa Fe dining.

The chili stew was good, the rellenos were average, the burrito special was average. And, average is ok, but there was nothing wow about the place or the food. Friendly wait staff.

Excellent food that is prepared by a true chef. This restaurant has been a treasure for many years. It is worth the wait, and you will have to wait some. I had to smile when I heard a tourist's surprise over the fact that they make their own potato chips. Truly quality food in a family owned restaurant.

My husband and I come to Santa Fe every year and we cannot leave without eating here for breakfast. My husband loves their huevos rancheros and I love their pancakes and omelettes smothered in green chile. Plus, the cinnamon rolls are absolutely sinful. (It probably takes us weeks to work off all the calories we eat here.) We can't wait... More

Has to be a must go restaurant in Santa Fe. Its out from the town centre but worth the drive/cab ride. We went twice. Dinner and lunch. Its packed for lunch! Lucky to get a table. Large portions (amazing, I know) & great green chilli. Do yourself a favour and eat here. Bookings recommended for lunch and some dinner times.
