Highly recommended

Went to the Good Life for breakfast on the recommendation of a local. The eggs benedict were perfect, with the cafe's own homemade hollandaise sauce on top. Fast service, very friendly people. Plenty of food to satisfy a hearty appetite.

Found this place tucked in a corner of a small shopping plaza with other stores. Took a chance and so glad we did. Really great quality food at a very reasonable price which is always a plus while on vacation. Atmosphere was nice and casual, and the service was attentive and friendly. There were four of us dining and we... More

We ordered our dinners to go and my fish tacos were perfect. They kindly sent an array of sauces so that I could decide what and how much to use. We'll be back to try out their breakfast. Everything was fresh and well-prepaped.

It is very difficult to find whole wheat pancakes. Good Life Cafe serves them with or without blueberries. The fresh berries were cooked into the stack as well as mounded as a garnish on top. The coffee was very good, and the standard eggs, hash browns, sausage and sour dough toast were perfect. We are not early risers, so we... More

Didn't know the area and we stopped in because one of the local shopkeepers said it was good. Very nice outside patio dining. The food was really good and nice sized portions. We enjoyed the "Bloody Mary's" even though they are not made with full strength alcohol. Still very tasty. Very good service too.

The Good Life Cafe is tucked back in a strip mall. They have outdoor seating which is great in the summer. For the winter months plenty of seating indoors. I love their zucchini fries and the salads are HUGE. I like the stir fry with loads of veggies. The staff is friendly and a great place to eat after you... More

Like to meet friends here. Wide variety of food choices. Nice patio area to sit outside. Not fancy, but good food. Can go for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

Delicious and wholesome breakfast in Mammoth Lakes. Warm ambiance, nice local art on the walls, attentive service, very good food (we have breakfast here, but they do lunch as well, don't know about dinner). When in Mammoth Lakes, this is out go-to breakfast place.

The good: the restaurant is attractive and clean, the food ok and the vegetables very fresh. The bad: very slow service and a problem with our bill. We were a party of 8, 4 couples, and asked for separate checks at the ouiset. The waitress responding with a nod rather than words, resulted in one check being presented to the... More

This restaurant used to be my favorite for casual dining when I lived in Mammoth and worked right above it. But I hadn't been back in years after moving down to Bishop. The food was better than I remembered. The services was good (never a place you got doted on, but friendly service that checked in just enough). And it's... More
