If it is breakfast time and you are in town, stop here to eat

Pretty good for a casual breakfast. Enjoyed listening to George at the next table because he knows all the town gossip.

Travelling from San Francisco to Groveland, Yosemite, in need of a coffee, we spotted Cindy's sign and decided to stop. This was the best decision we made that day as this is an excellent family owned diner with a varied menu. We decided to eat and enjoyed good service, good food and free refills of coffee. We would thoroughly recommend... More

We pulled in for brunch on our way to Yosemite from San Francisco. The staff were really friendly and it is obviously a place where the local residents eat. We just had a sandwich but they were really nice and tasty and it was perfect for what we wanted.

Just off Hwy 120 and easy to get to. Good is good but leans heavily to the Mexican side. Friendly wait staff .

On our annual drive from S.F. to Yosemite we always stop at Cindy's for breakfast. Nothing fancy and a diner-type set-up, but the breakfasts are very good, the service is friendly and the place is neat and clean. Probably this is more or an "average" place, but the breakfast is very good.

We were on our way home from Yosemite. My husband had spotted the restaurant on our way to the National Park and put it on our itinerary back to the airport. It was so worth the notation! Awesome omelet and adding grilled chicken to the spinach salad ... yum!. When your meal conversation includes talking with local customers, it just... More

We go to Cindy's fairly often as it's always good food and the service is friendly. I try something different each visit and had the carne asada dinner last night. It was very good, not excellent but very flavorful. My wife always has the chicken quesadia which she loves and the grandkids have the children's cheese burger or the Mexican... More
