A pleasant breakfast.

I haven’t had a breakfast this good in a long time. The menu has a thorough selection of classic omelets and egg dishes. My wife had the ABC omelet, avocado, bacon, and cheese, no, not cheddar, but rather cream cheese. She loved it. I had the Eggs Benedict and it was utter perfection, three perfectly poached eggs sitting atop hefty... More

We stopped for lunch at the Mile High without reading any reviews, so were pleasantly surprised to find Korean dishes among the lunch choices. 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 box). The spice level was... 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.
