Great Service, Awesome food and Mo the manager is the best! We travel to Santa Maria twice a year and let Mo know when we are in town and she asks her chef to prepare extra Clam Chowder soup just so that we can take a large order home. Thanks Mo! You and your team are the best!!

Don't know if this is actually family run or if it just feels like it. Very clean. Staff friendly, helpful, and seem to actually WANT to be there. Also seemed glad we were there. Food is usual diner/family restaurant fare, but done just as you would want it. Only regret is I didn't have room for a piece of pie.... More

Breakfast special is $5.50 for eggs, bacon or sausage, half a waffle or pancake. Great waffle. Good service and very friendly. Best salsa, O'Brien potatoes, and biscuits too.

We were eating late breakfast, early lunch and had their Farmers Skillet. Really good on its own, but, it came with fantastic biscuits and gravy as well. We were very full! $25 for two included coffee. We would go back in a flash and it was obvious the locals were there! We were visiting.

We enjoyed Saturday breakfast at The Pantry, which had a steady traffic of local folk -- mostly baby boomers and beyond. The menu has reasonable diversity, and all of the food was good, but there was little to distinguish the food from any other coffee shop. Service was adequately attentive, although my potatoes were lukewarm when they arrived, making me... More

We stopped in for dinner. The prices were good and the employees were very nice. We had a turkey dinner, chicken fried steak, and chicken fried pork chops. The dessert list was long and tasty. There were a lot of locals there that night, and we will be going back.

Been to The Pantry many times over the years. Our favorite meal there is breakfast....especially the French Toast! Dinner is good as well with home style favorites. Service is fast, employees are very polite. If you go on Sunday morning, expect to wait a bit as this is a busy time.

Thank jean k
