Excellent Breakfast

Well made breakfast with great service. I had the eggs Benedict. Loved it. Down side is it is a small place. You may want to eat there during off peak times to avoid waiting for a table.

We stopped in for breakfast, what a nice little place. The staff was welcoming, and the place was clean. The Breakfasts we had were all excellent. The eggs, and pancakes, as well as the French Toast were prepared correctly, and tasted great. This will be our new breakfast stop in Mammoth.

The server was slow and rude the Bloody Mary was the worst ever and the food wasn't worth returning for. The only think keeping this business open is the tourists.

Small restaurant but excellent breakfast food. Stopped here early upon leaving town and we all liked what we got. The waitress was overwhelmed with a lot of customers but handled it well. Good quality food at a reasonable price.

I've had lunch at the Base Camp café several times over the past years and was always satisfied with the quality, taste and portions of the food.
