Casual breakfast/brunch place

We stopped by the Good Life Café after a hike around Convict Lake, and it was perfect for what we wanted. We hitched our dog to the outdoor deck and sat outside and ordered a very fresh meal of fish tacos and quiche. Everything was good and tasted handmade and homemade. Casual, fresh, and... read more

Three breakfasts here. Great vibe, food and staff. What more can you ask for. Portions are very big so lunch not really required.

My boyfriend and I went to this place for breakfast because we saw some good reviews on foursquare. From the outside, I thought it looked kind of cheesy but I like little cafes so we gave it a try. I will admit the orange juice was good, as was the good life breakfast. The hash browns were crispy and my... More

Good food, great service. I had the Benedict eggs and half a bow of fruits, and it was great, just a little too much hollandaise sauce for my taste. Everyone was happy! I recommend!

We tried this place out the last time we stayed in Mammoth. We ended up eating there three times in four days, lol. Yes, it has become our favorite Eastern Sierra restaurant!! The food is so incredibly tasty, fresh and healthy!!! The waitstaff was very nice! If I were a local, I'd eat there all the time. If I were... More

We were so impressed here we ate here 3 times on our vacation. Two breakfasts and a dinner to treat our taste buds. We read a fluff article in one of the tourist magazines on the owner/chef of the Good Life Café and their attitude of using fresh ingredients with a non-fast food attitude. With that and the good reviews... More

This place is something special. Everything we had was amazing including their coffee. Great service, and prices. Make sure you get blueberries AND chocolate chips on the pancakes. It will change your life!

A bit expensive for a cafe but good choice and good service. Local police used it so it must be good :-)

If you are visiting Mammoth Lakes, CA and would like to find a great place for breakfast, we suggest you go to the Good Life Cafe on Old Mammoth Road. The food is very good in this charming small cafe. We found that the menu was extensive, with a few surprise dishes. Prices as reasonable. Try it, you'll like it.
