I do believe there is half a cow in that sandwich. That's what you call a filling meal.

The Auto Show is running for a week. Time to come into the Original Pantry Café and enjoy a meal like mom cooked.

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!

Delicious, all American breakfast. Can’t go wrong with prices. It is cash only. Parking across the street is $3 if you eat and get ticket validated. Dope spot for a solid breakfast. Fun to sit at the counter and watch the line cooks while they work.
