Great Smoothie in an Unconventional Setting

We stopped by here on our way out of the Yosemite high country and it was a delightful stop. The person behind the counter suggested I try a strawberry-kale smoothie since they were out of bananas. She was correct; it was surprisingly delicious and was a refreshing drink to have on the way back... read more

A nice lazy Saturday morning, sipping a cup of milky coffee together before attending the Farmers Market at Mountain Sage. I can think of few better places to relax and enjoy a cup of really good coffee than the grounds of this nursery. Stop by soon, you'll enjoy the experience!

Great little coffee/tea shop. The best part is the garden area with hammocks and hula hoops. The lemonade was wonderful however I was not a fan of the quiche. Has a cute little shop inside and loads of seating available. A must stop

Excellent coffee and other exotic warm beverages, great music, comfortable atmosphere, extremely friendly staff, reasonable prices, high speed internet, woodstove... what more can you ask for? Please stop in and support this local business so it's here for years to come.

This is a great local establishment. The owners have a combination of café, nursery and gallery featuring the beautiful photography of one of the owners. There is a rustic family room area with a stove and plush chairs along with free wifi. They also have concerts in the summer.

Cute independent funky coffee shop with art, jewelry and gifts to peruse before getting back on the road! Lots and lots of comfortable seating inside and out. They sell a few food items such as a burrito but they also have some yummy looking homemade pastures! Stop here if you can!!

I thought this was a really cute place! Tons of comfy couch room to sit. Cool old historic house. A lot of teas and pour over coffee!! Not a great pastry selection, but I loved the earthy warm vibe of this place! There's a nursery out back that's fun to walk through too! I had a rooibos tea latte and... More

OK this is the seconded time going to Mountain Sage Café and my wife and love it. We took a day trip up to Groveland to see the sun. This was the first stop to get the Best Brown Sugar Latte ever and only place I know that servers it. My Wife and I love every thing about this place.... More
