As usual, this place doesn't disappoint. Sourdough toast is addictive, spaghetti and meatballs are like a grandma is back there simmering sauce all day. Coffee, eggs, pancakes, bacon, served all day and night, always fresh and orange juice is fresh squeezed daily. Literally nothing bad to say about this place.

Classic Diner. Fantastic staff and value for money. The food was really good. Can't believe that Denny's down the road is still in business with this place. But I guess there are people that don't want to support the locals. I hope you guys are around for another 95 years.

I have been going to the Pantry since I was a little kid. I am never disappointed. When CA natives tell me they've never been to The Pantry I look at them like they're aliens. It is truly an experience. I've always loved it and now my kids love it. No matter what I get on the menu, I always go home with pancakes and a loaf of bread. Love this place!
