If you like your breakfast to be breakfast, and not some disappointing breakfast-lite affair, be certain you will enjoy your meal at The Pantry. Generous, well prepared servings.

Stopped in on a quick visit to town. I've never had linguica before, so I went for the Portuguese Omelette. Very flavorful, but know that the sausage is heavy in garlic. If you like sausage and garlic you'll love this. Prices are what you'd expect and the service was extremely attentive. Great breakfast and worth stopping in.

Thank akadad

Stopped in to eat dinner on our trip back home and picked this place bcuz of reviews. It smelled stale and old and musty the moment we walked in. Hostess was very nice but the place was almost empty of customers. We waited 15 minutes for our waitress to show up but she never did. We left money on the... More

We had breakfast here two days in a row. Service was fast and courteous . We both had the senior breakfast. They were accommodating with substitutions on their recommended selections. Would definitely recommend this restaurant for breakfast.

I was in a hurry and looking for gluten free breakfast options. I did not find any but the Pantry on Park has great omlettes like "the pantry" which as name implies has a lot in it. Hot chocolate is free refills like coffee. Service was friendly and attentive. Decor is comfortable and warm. Open for lunch and dinner also.... More

I actually just ate here for the first time last week. I suspect I now know what lots of other locals already did.... great food, pleasant staff, bright building and no "fry cook" odors. The building temperature was also perfectly pleasant. The eight of us ordered a variety of breakfast foods and they were all delicious. The waffle was crisp,... More

One of our favorite places to stop for breakfast or lunch. The portions are always healthy and the food is is very good. The staff is nice and need some improvement, however I go there for the food and I bring my own great company, my wife. Let's not forget the home made pies, whice are awesome.

This is a GREAT place to go if you like home cooking and generous portions! The food is fantastic and the service is friendly and welcoming. The pancakes are the kind that fill your whole plate! And if you like fruit syrups, you MUST try the Homemade Berry Syrup! It is DELICIOUS and the BEST I've ever had!

This is a throw back type of place where you can get a breakfast like Grandma used to fix. They have a lot of good combinations and choices but I liked the Hay Stack Potato Pancakes with sour cream & chives. They do breakfast, lunch and dinner and obviously have a steady stream of local folks belling up to the... More
