Good luck with the pancake!

This place looks like a roadside diner from about 1970, which it is. However, no place I ate in 1970 fed me like this joint. Ordered eggs, bacon and a pancake for breakfast, and managed to finish maybe half of the pancake, which lapped over the edges of the 12in place by a bit, and tasted... read more

Don't let the sleepy look of this roadside cafe fool you. The food was delicious (we ordered the hamburger) and the portion was generous. The server could not have been more friendly and engaging. A great spot!

I stopped by here on my walking trek from Ventura, Ca, to Canada and had just come up from Klamath. I was pulling a very small two wheel hiking cart and found Diamond Lake Junction Cafe. I was very hungry and was looking forward to a home cooked meal. There was only one car in the parking lot, and when... More

While traveling from California to Washington for the Thanksgiving holiday, we stumbled across this gem. We saw the little cafe and were not sure it was open but stopped to check...SO glad we did. What a quaint little spot. We were greeted by Lenny who hooked us up with some hot coffee and hot chocolate for the kids. After looking... More

We were lucky we found this place before we drove a long distance to Crater Lake. This was not far from Crater Lake. We stayed overnight at the Diamond Lake Resort. The room was basic but we were only there to sleep. The Cafe has good food. We had a very nice dinner outside on Diamond Lake. It had a... More

We stopped here on our way to Diamond lake and the food was just what we needed after a long ride. On each table were notes from other travelers which were fun to read while eating.

The food was great. Some of the best onion rings and fresh fries I've had. The owner was quite friendly and the cook got our order out in a timely manner. Not fast food, but good, made to order burgers :)

Good little dinner in the middle of nowhere, but if you plan to stop here for breakfast, they may not be open in the morning and they close at 7:00 pm, and sometimes earlier.
