Mammoth Lakes is a place that doesn't offer fine dining: just about every place is a variation on heavy handed, greasy, indelicately prepared food. For this reason, I was particularly happy and happily surprised to have lunch here. The daily special was grilled chicken stir...More

The cafe is cozy, the staff is SUPER friendly and helpful. It is typical cafe food. The green chili enchiladas are to die for. I don't usually like pork, but this melts in your mouth. Yum!

This is one of the go to breakfast places in Mammoth. The food was good and the service fast. If you want breakfast this is a good place.

I've been coming to Mammoth forever. Good Life Cafe is the best breakfast place in town. Great breakfast burritos, sure, but fabulous chili Verde rancheros or the shredded beef rancheros! Daily specials, fresh squeezed juices...carrot, orange, grapefruit.... Casual seating, great food, reasonable prices.

My husband is vegan and eating while traveling can be a challenge. We had a nice meal, for a very reasonable price at Good Life Cafe.

Best Chile Verde Omelet I've ever had. Everything else was great too. You might have to wait for a table but worth it IMHO. Fast service, the team is always moving quick and everthing is served hot and tasty. Staff is so friendly too.

Excellent menu and terrific service. The food was perfectly prepared and served quickly. The wait staff was very friendly and came over often to fill the coffee cups. A perfect place for breakfast.

Lady Mary S Have a blast is Mammoth! What would you order if they did not have omelette on the menu? I was in Oxnard on Sunday and saw 3 grey whales during whale watching :-)
