Go for breakfast AND lunch!

We stayed at the Silver Lake resort last year and had breakfast and lunch at the cafe. After trying the pancakes last year, my wife tried to find pancakes that were better than the Silver Lake cafe. She couldn't! She swears they are the best pancakes she has ever had. This year, we again... read more

This is a hidden gem. We stopped with low expectations, and were blown away. The food was fresh and well prepared. The service was quick and friendly. This little cafe is well worth a detour off of 395.

The place is very "mountainy" with a fishing theme. It is right across from Silver Lake, so the scenery is fabulous. The wait staff are all very friendly, but the food is out of this world. I have been there twice and ordered the Denver omelette. I have never had it with mushrooms and they add them here. It is... More

Camped at the Silver Lake Resort last week with 13 inches of snow. This cafe is at the resort in the back of the store. Pleasant surprise! Great food and reasonable.

Located in the Eastern Sierra on the June Lake Loop near the shores of Silver Lake, Silver Lake Resort, which opened in 1916, built a Café that hosts the most incredible food with an old rustic feel to it. On the walls are old photos from the past, old fishing gear with large trophy fish to admire! Even John Muir... More
