Drinks and a dessert!

We were touring the village area of town on a cold day and dropped in for drinks and ended up also with a delicious nutella crepe! Gotta try them...they have several varieties. Then we ordered some sandwiches to go and all was delicious. Staff friendly and attentive. Let us sit for quite awhile... read more

We were touring the village area of town on a cold day and dropped in for drinks and ended up also with a delicious nutella crepe! Gotta try them...they have several varieties. Then we ordered some sandwiches to go and all was delicious. Staff friendly and attentive. Let us sit for quite awhile and just warm up!

In my opinion, all the restaurants in Mammoth Village are really "family restaurants". Not bad if you have a bunch of kids, but if you are looking for a nice dinner try Convict Lake or Tamarack Lodge, and I have heard nothing but great things about the Brasserie. But if you don't want to leave the Village, the SIde Door... More

We were looking for a small café to eat breakfast in Mammoth. We rode down the gondola to the Village area and came across this quaint restaurant “The Side Door Cafe”. It looked busy, so that always being a good sign, we went in to try it. We were seated on the patio, which is not the nicest location in... More

We go to Mammoth several times each winter and Always make a point to stop and eat here, and of course drink a little Wine since it has a great little wine bar. The atmosphere is laid back and has an easy going, friendly atmosphere. The staff is always friendly, food is always good and cooked fresh. My wife is... More

Cute french style with indoor/outdoor patio/covered/outdoor seating areas. Beautiful wine displays and architecture. Obviously a lot of money,time, detail and thought was put into it. its a little cramped in some areas, we sat in the bar area on a high top. uneven and wobbly table and chairs due to rough but beautiful flooring.Only 2 couples in the place. Painfully... More

Came here for lunch the other day and left impressed. We split a salad and a crepe and that was plenty for the two of us. The crepes are quite large. If you come for just dessert crepes then you will be impressed, there were too many to choose from.

Had lunch at this restaurant/café in the village on our vacation. The food was decent, the service was friendly but a bit slow (despite having few patrons at the place at that hour), and the prices were steep in light of what they served. I liked the ambiance/atmosphere, but I'd categorize this restaurant as one of those "vacation food traps"... More

Cozy and romantic little place unexpected in the Mammoth village area. We sat in the back bar area. The appetizers were really good and the wine selection and cocktails abundant! Would like to come back again to hang out and try more of the food! Paired with a drink of course!

We love to have dinner in town and stop in for a coffee and crepe dessert. Their service is typical for Mammoth and somewhat spotty but it's always a good time
