One of the benefits of being a tour bus driver is finding great local places to eat. This place is no exception to that. Wonderful breakfast served promptly. Server Ashley did a fine job and the rest of the staff also friendly. Get there early, as by the time we left, there wasn't a table left!

This is the best breakfast restaurant anywhere. The staff is friendly and the food is awesome. Portions are big! Omletes are fluffy. The Baked German Pancake is amazing! Even if there is a line, it is worth the wait!

We met our grand daughter and her boyfriend for late breakfast today (Saturday). There was a little bit of a wait but not too long. I had the blueberry/apricot suprise (german pancake) and it was delicious. Others got omlettes and fruit, equally delicious. Hubby got the tuna melt. Now he has had that at the Romeo Pantry an liked it... More

Open for breakfast and lunch. They serve all foods at all times. Service and food choices are suburb. Just found out that there is no wait after 1 during the week! Weekends are totally the opposite but totally worth the wait

Very nice people and a good breakfast selection. Very busy with local business on a Saturday morning and you might have to wait. Worth the wait even more so because there doesn't seem to be a lot of other choices. Good family place and large selection so everyone will be happy. Not fancy but clean and adequate.

This is a diner style restaurant with pretty darn good breakfast food. I had a make your own omelet with ham, onion, mushroom, asparagus, and cheddar cheese. Really good. The Dutch boy and crepes look amazing as well.

When I can't make it to my favorite 'Original Pancake House' in Birmingham...and I am the other side of town... The Pantry prepares a lineup if delicious breakfast fare exactly the same way! Amazing but true. And reasobably priced. Not a fancy place, but the coffee is delicious and service is friendly. They have lunch fare as well...always a plus.

My husband & I love coming to The Pantry in the mornings for breakfast! The line is always long, but it has always moved quickly for us. The food is always delicious and cheap!

Discovered this restaurant through my hotel dining plan & I was NOT disappointed! Staple breakfast dishes are offered along with large-portioned unique dishes (the Dutch Boy is enough for 1 person & you can order it with various toppings/fillings). DELICIOUS!!!!! Coffee kept coming & was tasty good too.

Thank Barbara F
