Had breakfast there on a Wednesday morning. Food was good and menu reflected local cafe. Service was a bit slow but they were busy. Good stop for local cafe food.

Whether a local or tourist this is the place for breakfast (traditional & Mexican). A 20-30 minute stand outside and then the fun starts. Once seated you will be deluged with servers bring silver, water, menus, coffee, and great food. The tables turn over quickly so the wait isn't bad at all. There is a huge parking lot behind the...

A great little restaurant walking distance from our inn. At times very busy, but the line moves so quickly. Great food (loved the breakfasts and the homemade guacamole), fast service, nice atmosphere, friendly staff. We were impressed!

We came here on advice of Texas neighbors. We arrived on a late Sunday morning only to find the large lot full. We parked across the busy street. We noticed a long line as we entered. Our wait was twenty five minutes. Others in the line said this was normal. Apparently not a secret to locals. Upon seating by very... More

For our trip through Santa Fe coming and going, we stopped at THE PANTRY 3 times. Once for lunch on the way to Taos. Returning for dinner several nights later and back for breakfast the next day. Every dish of Mexican food has been terrific; the cheese enchiladas with beef and enchiladas with spinach and chicken taste wonderful. Not Tex... More

There were 6 in our group ranging from 13 to 79 years old. Glad we chose this restaurant. Food was excellent. Waitstaff were very attentive and checked on us throughout the meal to see if we needed anything else. Would definitely eat here again.

We ate here for breakfast and dinner. Both meals were excellent! The food was well presented and very fresh. The wait staff got our orders correct. If I was going to complain, I asked for Tabasco sauce, twice and never got it. The food was priced right we thoroughly enjoyed both visit and will come back.

Thank chemicaldude
