The Good Life Café in Mammoth Lakes, CA had very good food and service. We had meals of pork enchiladas with black beans and verde sauce as well as the chicken picata. The food was delicious. The portions were large enough to satisfy our hunger. The hosts and severs were friendly and the restaurant was clean and well run. The... More

The Good Life Cafe is "hidden" off Old Mammoth Lakes road on the backside of the Chart House. Unless you look carefully you'll miss it because it does not have a frontage location. I arrived at 5:00 pm and was the first guest. Another part arrived shortly thereafter. I had seen a Greek Chicken Wrap photo on Yelp so I... More

Very busy cafe for breakfast, so expect a line. Super selection and good quality. Friendly but slow service.

They serve breakfast, lunch and dinner and I had a great dish Which was vegetable stir fry. The menu was diverse and creative. I would go back and I would imagine it would this venue attract a lot of locals. The location was good and there is a plaza and theater across the road

I love the Good Life cafe. I come here with my staff for breakfast quite often. They're friendly, service is very quick, and the food is great. We used to go to The Stove, but their portions got smaller and prices went up, and they stopped splitting our bill. I'm glad we found the Good Life for our regular department... More

My husband and I worked in Tuolumne and, when coming to Mammoth Lakes, made a point of getting an early start so we could have breakfast here. The always made a fresh pot of their Fu Fu coffee- their dark roast of the day. A coffee lovers dream.

Great food and great service. Nice decoration too. Besides I had to avoid some allergen and the chef customized the dish for me. Simply excellent.

Ate here 3 times while in mammoth in August. We loved the quesadillas and shared our meal. Unless you are very hungry, you can share your meal. Our dinner was great as well. Service was great as well.

I understand that, this is not a fast food restaurant but we got there approximately at10am, it wasn't busy at all, then 3 couples arrived after us, after a while they all got their meals except for us. Not sure why, the food was good but nothing extraordinary.
