Surprise: Several standard options and Korean dishes

We had Bibimap, Yaki Udon, and a terriyaki turkey sandwich. The first two were excellent (so much food in the bibimap that I had a full meal in the to go... read more

This place we just happen on when we took a wrong turn. What a wonderful find. The service was exceptional, food delicious and the atmosphere was very welcoming with the cozy fire. I plan on making another trip up there when I can take my parents to enjoy the live pianist :)

My wife and I discovered Idyllwild in 2013. We tried the MHC for lunch and discovered they serve sushi. The sushi is great. We returned this year and stopped here first. We had Sizzling Rice Soup which was terrific. Nam and Jason do a great job.

The menu was very diverse with a little bit of everything. Once we ordered it took about 10 minutes for our food to... More

The Mile High Café was perfect for breakfast on two chilly mornings. A wood fireplace was welcoming, service was attentive and the food was excellent. Eggs cooked beautifully. Galbi beef ribs with eggs were totally unexpected, but brilliant. Belgian waffle crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. Highly recommend.

We had a late breakfast here on a wintry morning. The dining room was heated by a wood-burning stove, and we were given a table near it. The menu was standard, but extensive (incl. Korean barbecue). My 2 eggs over easy, 2 large pancakes, and 2 strips of bacon were well prepared and actually more than I could eat. Easy... More

Just had a wonderful dinner, served family style. We were served dinner that was cooked to perfection, seasoned wonderfully and presented beautifully. It was very pleasant inside with a crackling fire and a guitar player playing favorite songs. Very attentive and friendly staff. Made for a very pleasurable experience.
