Had brunch on a Sunday morning. Food was average - pleasant without blowing us away. Prices were slightly above average, even for Church St. The most disappointing aspect was the service which felt rushed whilst not rude. The waitress was removing our plates whilst we were still chewing our last mouthfuls. I'd be inclined to try the many other options... More

Down to Brighton for a walk to the beach and grabbed a great breakfast at the Pantry. The good is consistently good as evidenced by the crowds that are always there

Nice food however I'd like to see a more extensive menu or different dishes. Some of the lunch dishes could be lighter.

Well Melbourne food is the best in the world and the Pantry is up there with that. Lovely gluten free lunch with my son who only had a coffee. Great vibe, great food, great location. Can't wait to come back and draw on the table again 😊

Waitress (young, blonde, working lunch shift 5 March) had a well developed "don't care" attitude. Food was good but service and wait time unacceptable when they were not overly busy."

Okay, we don't live far away so it's become a staple for us over the years, but every time is like coming for the first time because it's so enjoyable and fresh-- but has that magic of familiarity because the staff are so blitzkriegingly well-trained they remember favourites and remember where you tend to like to sit and this and...

Wonderful Saturday night with such delicious meals. Impressed 3 friends with a visit to the Pantry Dining Room. Rib Eye steak. Medium rare. Perfectly cooked with potatos. Whole Snapper with greens, crispy skin and succulent flesh. Char grilled Calimarri Main with greens and olives. Amazingly tender, delicious. And Linguine with Mooloolaba prawns and seafood. This was my dish and it's... More

Pantry is the place to B in Brighton, crowded at lunch time and romantic at night. Nice but quite expensive menu. The service is quick and smiley. Casual wine list. The restaurant offers romantic design but the talkative clients can quickly ruins your diner. Nice food concept for those who like to look the brighton population.
