Description: The Pantry Restaurant has been a Santa Fe landmark since 1948. We offer a unique take on a diner, where the cuisine of Northern New Mexico meets traditional American food. We have been serving quality fresh from scratch comfort food for over sixty years. You will be pleased with our fast and friendly service while enjoying the best chile in Santa Fe. As a family owned business we pride ourselves on serving the freshest and most quality ingredients to all of our guests and we promise to treat you like part of the family.

The Pantry was rated well by other reviewers so we decided to try it. It is not in the tourist area but, as with most cities, the best food is often not found in the big tourist areas. This old, quaint place is well worth going a little out of your way to visit. It was probably the best food we had in Santa Fe. Nothing fancy, but great food!

Throwback diner experience. Food is excellent and varied. I've never had anything here that I disliked, and, as a result, I was willing to try other entrees.

If you haven't had it before, get the Frito pie. It is a Santa Fe experience, and this is a great place to have it. (Besides, it's a good dish!)

I'm very sorry to hear this, Vuedemond. It's great you received wonderful service, but we pride ourselves on creating fresh, quality meals, and it's disappointing you didn't experience that. Thanks for letting me know, and I hope if you're ever in town you give us another chance. I know we can impress you.

We discovered the Pantry Restaurant last summer and knew that we would return. This restaurant is a local favorite. Our preferred breakfast item is the Durango omellete. It contained a perfect combination of ingredients including sour cream and was covered in green chile sauce. We enjoyed the green chile sauce although those unfamiliar with chiles might find it too hot. The egg was cooked perfectly, not overcooked with a brown crust. We plan to eat there again when we return in August to see the Santa Fe opera.
