I thoroughly enjoyed a Japanese lunch with icon soup and sushi. on another occasion I returned with friend and enjoyed buckwheat noodles. both dishes I had never tried but was very pleased. I noticed some beautiful sushi creations brought to... More

We came here after a long hike - the food was very good, service excellent, and art in the place really wonderful. One of the guests even took a turn on the piano which was nice.

Our weekend crew travel crew visited the resturant and wanted a good reasonable breakfast. Until our waitress came to take our order it sremed like everything was a chore. there was no greeting for our party and the attitude of the staff was "why are you hear". The place was not crowded and nor was it busy. When our waitress... More

Fusion food. A great mix of American and Asian Fusion presented in great form. Everything looks great and tastes great. Their rice bowls are really good. Had breakfast here also. Everything is good. The owners are nice people too. Easy to find - right next to the school on the highway.

Stopped here on our way out of Idyllwild. The food and service were excellent and the price was very reasonable. We also enjoyed live music, a beautiful young lady played the piano while we ate. Very enjoyable experience.

As one of the owners of Quiet Creek Inn, I always recommend Mile High Cafe to my guests for several reasons. The service is always good. Something that can't always be said of other breakfast joints in town. The quality of the food is always superb. There are plenty of "cheaper" places to grab a quick meal in the morning... More

We only came here for the (fixed) breakfast which was part of our cabin deal, but the service and the quality of that breakfast convinced us that we shall branch out into the pretty exciting looking Asian menu next visit .

We stayed in Idyllwild for a couple of days during the week last year and stopped in to The Mile High Cafe for breakfast. It was really fresh food and great service. No mimosas though :(
