Stopped in for breakfast before heading to Yosemite. Classic diner fair including excellent hash browns, crispy on the outside and moist inside. The eggs were cooked to perfection. Not a huge menu, but we weren't looking for extravagance either.

I'm a fried egg and bacon kind of girl because it's a hard meal to screw up. That being said, we were seated at a booth behind the cook, so I had some time to sit and watch him work. (That's one of the reasons I like open diners. You can see how much care and how efficient someone is... More

Got a recommendation for this cafe at the visitor center. Good tip. Friendly, fast service. Stopped on our way to Yosemite for a quick lunch. We had the Tuna melt and Club Sandwich. Their fryer was acting up so did not have the fries, instead had the split pea soup, which was excellent. If you are looking for a place... More

We waited nearly 30 minutes for a table. It's a tiny cafe, so we understood the wait. However, it would have been better service if someone greeted us and directed us to sign in for a table. We're from out of town and didn't know about this until a waitress yelled out "JOHN!" or some other guy's name. They need... More

My husband and I ate here on Sunday for the first time. Staff - pleasant but not attentive. We had to regularly ask for coffee and water refills (and silverware at the beginning!) She did get things to us when we did ask. There was a wait (no problem) - BUT . . .after our name was taken, people who... More

we were looking forward to a good breakfast in this cute Californian gold rush town...well it was anything but. We waited half an hour for the blandest awful omelettes which were served with equally awful unseasoned hash browns and a pityful slice of orange... The omelettes were thin,unseasoned and most likely made with liquid eggs, not fresh eggs. Mine had... More

I over ordered breakfast on the first day...pic attached...but I managed it all (the diet is in action now) Great staff, great food, very clean. It was my favourite breakfast place... More

The desk clerk at our hotel recommended this place for breakfast. We were 30 minutes too late for that, so this review is only for lunch. The food was pretty expensive for what you get, so it would have had to be pretty darned good to be worth that price, but it was not. It was just OK. Service was... More

Big breakfast is an understatement. I had a small serving of biscuits and gravy.... it was huge. Wonderful flavor! The hubby enjoyed an egg meal with a giant pancake on the side. Everything was great ... we just needed a bigger table to fit all the plates!
