We enjoyed this coffee shop for the few days we were at the Mammoth mountain bike park. Good coffee, people and atmosphere.

Fun place; smart about food and ingredients. I can't remember the exact name of it, but they have a drink named after Elvis. Scrumptious.

This is the best coffee and coffee house in town and that's saying a lot. Locals and regular visitors to Mammoth head here to get their caffeine fixes. Great vibe for relaxing.

The Looney Bean advertises its expresso as if it was the top of the top. Not so. I'm a coffee lover and I can tell you that my espresso tasted like stuff brewed from freeze dried powder. The place is kind of drab too, not at all like what their ad leads you to believe. Won't go back.

Coffee is very high quality and not nearly as sugary as Starbucks without sacrificing flavor. The owner is very friendly & it's a cozy place to hang out.

Stopped here before check in. The girl behind the counter was shy and I had to get her attention after a few minutes of her back turned to the counter. She just seemed a little checked out. The coffee was good though. I ordered a peppermint white mocha.

Wonderful atmosphere to meet up with friends or enjoy a cup of coffee and gaze at the mountains. Local coffee place (nice alternative to Starbucks). Good service and helpful when unable to decide what to try.
