I used to eat at the Pantry regularly back in the 1980s and early 1990s. I took my wife and kids there for lunch a few days after Christmas 2019. It was like stepping back in time. The charm of the place is undeniable. Our waiter was charming, funny, and “old school.” The portions were huge. And because breakfast is still served all day, the pancake lovers were left happy. We all left satisfied and stuffed.
