Good another snack

We stopped by Mile High Cafe and as we walked in, we noted some signs in Korean. It turns out to be a standard cafe with burgers etc but also serve Korean food like bulgogi, udon noodles, spicy pork. We tried the udon which was pretty good. Anyways surprising Asian find up in the mountains.

What a nice place! We had two excellent breakfasts here (my husband finally got the Eggs Bene he was craving, the second served on a Portobello mushroom). Food was so nice that we returned for dinner complete with classical pianist and authentic Korean/Asian food. Very good for gluten-free. Lovely wait staff, hard not to like this place in a very...

I frequented this cafe 5-6 times during my 2 week stay in Idyllwild. The owner, Nam, is a nice woman with a friendly, outgoing personality. The breakfast was always yummy, (eggs-exaclty the way I wanted them, bacon, hash browns) and the coffee very good. The waffle is to die for...I just had the regular waffle with maple syrup. The lunch... More

We stopped here for lunch after driving up from San Diego to drop our boy off at the Summer Arts camp. We were just in time for breakfast. Everything we ordered was yummy.

My family stayed in Idyllwild for the weekend and called in a 'to-go' order to bring back to our cabin. Turkey Garlic burgers and Beef Bolgogi. The Turkey Garlic burgers were HUGE! You would never know that a restaurant in Idyllwild could make such delicious American AND Asian food. I was not disappointed. If I could drive the 2-hour drive... More

My wife and I went here for dinner and were happy that we did. My wife had the beef bulgogi and I had the bapamit. My wife's beef was well cooked and her meal came with rice and salad. My meal was served with vegetables, beef and rice mixed together in a bowl. The restaurant was clean and also had... More

Well, the only Korean food in Idyllwild but if you are craving Asian food this is the place to go to. I go here on all my trips to Idyllwild. The owner is very sweet. One of these days I will try the breakfast which I hear is good too.

We stopped here first for breakfast and since it was so good we decided to try it out for dinner. Breakfast choices are great, they have something for everyone. Dinner time they have Japanese food and live piano playing. Now this sounds odd at first but it was so charming to have the live music while we enjoyed some very... More

My wife and I decided to take a long ride and we ended up here for breakfast. She had the ABC omelette and I had the Eggs Benedict. We shared dishes and they were both delicious. Staff here are very friendly and the service was excellent.
