Had the pesto pasta and my buddy had the pesto chicken sandwich. The food was good and the waitress was attentive and friendly... Yeah, we got there late and were last to leave, but she was very nice to us. We'll try to make it for breakfast, since she said that's what they are known for.... A bargain...

This little place in a shopping strip could easily be missed, but thankfully, we found it. Big,thick ham steak, not overly salty, perfectly cooked eggs, and a quiet place where you can eat in peace without loud music. We need more places like this one. If you are going by on 395, turn up to Mammoth, about 3 miles. It's... More

I really enjoyed the Bodie Omelette. The fresh fruit wasn't quite ripe but the hash browns were great.

Our whole party enjoyed our lunch today. The sandwiches and soup were good. Our favorite part of the meal was the zuccinni appetizer. Very good waitress. I thought it was pretty cool that they serve breakfast until 3:00. We had a late lunch around 2:45. The only turn off was the vacuum starting when we were finishing up our meal.... More

I actually found this place via Yelp. And what a gem of a breakfast place this is. I am sure their lunch is very good but I only come here for their great breakfast! Lots of open space to enjoy your breakfast, attentive servers, high quality food ingredients, unlimited coffee was XLNT, and the patrons: mostly locals on their way... More

What rocks about Good Life is its sun deck. In the eastern Sierra with such great weather most of the year outside eating is desirable- good life always has consistent if not super stellar food, and for us vegetarian options are awesome. This restaurant has a good kids menu and high chairs that aren't broken. I got the local favorite... More

Dropped by for a late breakfast. Staff are friendly. We sat outside - lovely veranda (no view) and there was a good buzz about the place. I had the buttermilk pancake half stack, with fruit, maple syrup and bacon. The pancakes weren't great - the inside was a bit dry and sticky and fell apart instead of staying as one... More

I loved this little restaurant. We ate breakfast here one morning before going to Yosemite. It was really good and I wish we would have had more time to eat here another day. Would definitely go back.

Have to sit on the outdoor patio for an late breakfast in the fall. The food is outstanding and provides huge choices. Must try is the nachos and burrito. Always check the specials as there may be your next favorite on the list.
