It doesn't look like much from the outside, but what a hidden gem! The little coffee shop has some funky history, great photos and interesting drinks. My favorite was the red tea coconut latte. The outside area is charming and great for little ones to stretch their legs.

Cute place with lots of comfy seating and good, free, wi-fi. I had an excellent smoothy, my husband loved his iced tea and we both thought our quiche was very good. We came back again a 2nd day and I had a scone which was excellent. When in the area we will definitely stop again. No table service, just order... More

I lived in Yosemite for three months in 2011, and used to frequently visit the Mountain Sage for coffee, snacks, and wi-fi/cell signal. I loved it there. It's not the type of cafe that serves up elaborate breakfasts, no. But I used to get an iced coffee and a breakfast sandwich, or a bagel, or scone, and just relax in... More

I went to the Mountain Sage Cafe with my husband looking for a small bite to eat and Wi-Fi. We had an iced latte and an iced mocha. My husband had a blueberry scone that was very tasty. I had their quiche of the day which was made, as I was told, by the hotel in town. I LOVE quiche...this... More

Great place to relax and get a cool drink and enjoy the ambiance of the nursery and gardens. Interesting plants to wander through.

The highlight of our stay in Groveland was drinks n treats at mountain sage. The drinks are delicious, the service is doting, the food is fresh and flavorful, the setting is peaceful and natural. I have NO idea why dories tea house rates #1, this place is wonderful. If I could pack it up n take it home I would.

An eclectic mix of nursery/coffee shop/gallery with a side of Farmer's Market (starts Saturdays @8 am!) and live outdoor music! Worth popping in for a look-see and strawberry lemonade!

What a fantastic little gem. We stopped in here for the farmers market on Saturday and attended a live music event. They have a lovely location with a beautiful backyard where you can sit under the trees and enjoy your coffee.

We love going to Mt. Sage Cafe for lunch - or anytime really. But my favorite thing is Jess's handmade soups. Jess and Chelsea are lovely people who add lots to the community not just the cafe. Favorite while visiting is to have soup by the fire. Also, try the homemade ginger ale!

I've stopped here twice on the way to Yosemite to grab coffee and chai tea. The drinks and pastries are quite good, but the atmosphere is really special. You can tell these locals really like where they live and they are mainstays of the community. Rob Hirsch is a fantastic photographer of nature, particularly Yosemite. His work is on display... More
