My husband, son and I made the trek up the mountain to try this out. Short wait, and friendly staff. There were no kid options, so I got the $22 meatloaf and mashed potatoes knowing he'd eat that. Broccoli and cheese soup I chose as a side was delicious. The meatloaf was not. The first few bites were cold and... More

We happened upon this place on our way through to Yosemite and decided to check it out. It looked very quaint and had a great vibe. So, dinner it was there the next night. Everything was delicious!. We had coconut pie and peach cobbler with ice cream. The coconut pie was the best we had ever had. Go for a... More

We stopped here twice on our visit to Yosemite, once on the way in for lunch, and secondly for breakfast before a long drive up to Tahoe. Both occasions were great. Be sure to try the pie, fabulous, I had the peach cobbler with ice cream delicious. Homemade granola and coffee for breakfast did the trick. This is a brilliant... More

We had breakfast and enjoyed everything about it! Bacon and sausage was awesome, potatoes were delicious and eggs cooked perfectly. The best part was the peach/berry cobbler. Coffee could be a little stronger but that's typical of a place like this, could just be my preference.

Great casual atmosphere, great taste in music, and we kept lucking out by getting a real table for two rather than the appealing, but less comfortable dishes around a u-shaped counter. We do not agree that the food served was only "ok" "roadside" diner. We come from one of the food snob hotspots in California and thought that by any... More

Stopped here for a lunch break. The service was really friendly, and the location convenient for our trip from Wawona to Lake Tahoe. Our kids ate hamburgers, which they claimed were good. The chicken salad was average, the salad was probably from a bag but the chicken part of it was ok. Did not try the desserts but they looked... More

Do not go to this restaurant. If you do you might have more than one dessert and that would not be fair to the rest of us. I had the last piece of peach raspberry pie there today. When I went to order a second piece I was told that I had the last piece and they erased the peach... More

We came across this café simply by chance after we were leaving Yosemite while traveling through Tioga Pass. We were going to drive to Lee Vining, California for lunch since the nearest park visitor center was not yet open. When stopping by this resort/café, we were more than pleasantly surprised by the quality of food and the array of fresh... More

A friend of mine highly recommend we stopped by Tioga Pass Resort Cafe on the way to June Lake from Yosemite village. Yes, it is an unique cafe. We only ate pie because we had breakfast at our hotel. The home made pies are very yummy. I like apple pie very much.

Stopped for a meal when driving east out of Yosemite NP. A very convenient place to rest and eat but very average. The service and food were average US roadside dinner standard but a little expensive. A wonderful position and very convenient
