Popular gathering spot in Stockbridge dishing up beautifully presented breakfast, brunch and lunch.
One of Stockbridge’s most popular brunch spots, The Pantry also offers an excellent lunch menu that combines some of its favourite breakfast items with well-crafted savoury dishes drawing on Scottish, Middle Eastern and Mediterranean influences. The line-up changes regularly, but one dish that remains by popular demand is a fragrant, spiced chickpea and tomato stew, topped with generous chunks of harissa-fried halloumi, honey labneh and a perfectly poached egg. Balancing spicy chilli, squeaky salty cheese, tangy lemon, and sweet creamy labneh, no two bites of this are the same, but each one is exemplary. Brunch also delivers: eggs Benedict layer a crisp English muffin, thick, succulent slices of honey roast ham, a poached egg, and silky hollandaise for a delicious mix of textures, and while their waffles aren’t the fluffiest, the drenching of maple syrup and fresh blueberries more than makes up for it.
