The Pantry is a very small restaurant that has apparently grown and grown. If you look at the front you'll not think much but there's a huge parking lot in the back. And it's full. We went on a Monday morning for breakfast and had to wait, and we were pretty lucky. They do have a nice long counter to... More

Once again, trip advisor came through. This place is great for breakfast and again, you can tell by the number of locals there. The place has been family run and owned since 1948. We watched the people and it was obvious that this is the place to be on Sunday mornings. Lots of locals hand shaking and hugs. The service... More

Homestyle cooking, wide variety of choices in the menu. Delicious food, fast and friendly service. The place is filled with locals! We ate here our two evenings in Santa Fe! Felt right at home. Well located on Cerrillos Road! Easy to find and get to.

We decided to go out for breakfast. Breakfast isn't my favorite meal. The Pantry might have changed my mind. Yes, it was a Sunday morning and yes, it was crowded and yes, we had to wait. Our wait was less than 15 minutes. My better half had the huevos rancheros. This is her favorite breakfast. The Pantry did not disappoint.... More

I'm happy the Huevos Rancheros hit the spot! I hope they made you a breakfast fan for good. It's great that the green chile was tasty, too. I hope you stop by again sometime! Till then, Michael Singley, Owner More

So often, visitors flock to the Plaza area for eating in Santa Fe. They miss a real gem for a great breakfast at The Pantry. Popular with the locals, this place often has a wait; but it is well worth it. The blue corn cinnamon pancakes are super, but hard to pass up the breakfast burrito! All entries are generous,...

Food is good for comfort food. Casual, diner styled restaurant. Nothing gourmet here but good for what it is. Food servers used good food handling practices once reminded.

Not very pricey. Breakfast potatoes were very yummy. We had no wait but when we left very long line. Service fast and very nice.

Four of us ordered all different items from the menu and each one of us was not let down. Nice portions with lots of Mexico favorites, especially liked the fresh tortillas. My husband had the corned beef burrito and he has food allergies and they were very accommodating. Great food, decent prices, retro atmosphere and very good service.

Ishkbibel, I'm happy everyone loved it here so much! We're always glad to accommodate our guests with certain needs -- it's great your husband loved his burrito. If you're ever in the area again, we'd love to have you back! All the best, Michael Singley, Owner More

We went to The Pantry for breakfast and it was amazing! I would recommend the red chilli! I love New Mexico red chilli and this was one of my favorites!
