Was looking for a new place to try while in Mammoth. Wen't TripAdvisor to find some suggestions. Good Life Cafe was highly rated, so we said why not. The cafe is located in a strip mall right before you get to the Sierra Nevada Hotel on Old Mammoth Road coming from Main Street. Upon entering we were greeted with a... More

We arrived in Mammoth 1pm but wanted breakfast. Many locals recommended the Good Life Cafe. They were absolutely right. It was delicious and filling. We didn't eat again until after 8pm. One of our daughters had the French toast with bacon. Delectable. Our other daughter had a cheese, bacon, and avocado omelette with hash browns. She ate all of it... More

Ate breakfast here several times, good food good service. From the behavior of the people in the place it was pretty evident that a lot of the "locals" are regulars in the place. That tells the story right there.

It's the Wandering Yank here. Mrs. Yank and I recently spent a wonderful long weekend in Mammoth. One morning we were in the mood for a hearty breakfast, and Good Life fit the bill. It's a real, honest hometown cafe. Decor was "real", spacious and clean. Service was friendly and efficient. Food was excellent - we had the usual eggs,... More

Located in a local strip mall, we found GLC because I had looked on Trip Advisor. They had great breakfast specials and all ingredients fresh. No frills, small local cafe. Would go back and recommend if you're into simple, but yummy!

Really enjoyed my simple breakfast there. I am picky about my eggs. Asked for scrambled soft and ate it all!!! Nice crispy bacon. Will definitely go back again!

The food here was good. It was pretty empty and it took a long time for food to arrive. So understand that you are getting a healthy meal and it's going to be a wait.
