There was a bit of a line out the door, but it was worth the wait. The food was good but different. Not Tex-Mex at all. i assume it is more authentic. Our waiter was very friendly and after a bad experience at another local restaurant, we tipped him very well. Only cons were that they did not serve sweet... More

This is a good place to eat breakfast. The locals like it and tend to hang out here a little longer talking with each other. It can be busy, but usually you can find a table. New Mexican and American food.

OK, this will be a short one. The Pantry Restaurant has to have some of the nicest employees I have ever seen in a restaurant. The folks are honestly happy to see you, will offer a suggestion if you ask, they get the food out to you incredibly fast, and the food is just fantastic! Take a lesson here, my... More

So good we went there twice. The place has excellent food and service. A wide variety of choices – I really enjoyed the enchiladas, while the Frito Pie was also a hit. The sopapillas make for an excellent desert. Would visit the next time in Santa Fe.

Michael S, Owner at Pantry Restaurant, responded to this review

That's such a huge compliment -- I'm happy you stopped by again! The enchiladas and Frito pie are both great choices, and good call with getting the sopaipilla to finish things off. See you next time, Michael Singley, Owner More

The food and service is great. Get early since the line starts forming out the door. They do give you a pager so you can sit outside while you wait. It's worth the wait. Diner atmosphere. Great food.

I know it can get a little crowded quickly, but I hope you didn't have much of a wait! Either way, I'm thrilled you loved your meal, and I hope you make it back sometime. All the best, Michael Singley, Owner More

Looking for a great place to try the food that the locals eat? This is it. A small cafe outside the center of Santa Fe that provides attentive, friendly service and great portions of exemplary “ordinary” food: red and green chilies, egg dishes, sandwiches, and good deserts. Since the 1940s, this has been a place to get satisfying breakfasts, filling... More

We eat breakfast here at least once whenever we stay in Santa Fe. The food is as advertised, tasty, served hot, and well-portioned, even huge in the case of breakfast burritos. Prices are very reasonable, and service is speedy and cheerful. What's not to like? The only issue we run into is the line out the door on weekend mornings.

I appreciate you always making it by while in town, Tom! Even though it can get crowded on weekends, I hope the breakfast has always been worth it. We'll see you next time! Safe travels, Michael Singley, Owner More

Stopped here for breakfast and it did not disappoint. We ordered an omelet and 2 egg breakfast. Service was fast, the food was super good and so was the coffee. The place is a little cramped so maybe not for huge parties and the place seems to be quite popular too. We luckily came at the right time and were... More
