Good food

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.

Small coffee shop in shopping center. They forewarn you that food is cooked to order and will take a little longer to receive your order. Everybody friendly and it was worth the wait. Nothing fancy but food was tasty and prepared correctly.

We had a great breakfast here every morning before skiing. I chose a different omelette each day. They were all great, including the Bodie, with bacon, mushrooms, onions, green chiles and cheddar cheese. The side of hashbrowns could be substituted for fruit. The choice of toast included sourdough and whole wheat. The coffee, OJ and lemonade were all delicious! Service... More

A local and tourist favorite. They always have a special or two going, and you can't really miss. Feeling like you want something a bit healthier? Try the veggie stir fry with chicken over brown rice. It comes with a hot garlic sauce on the side and is actually hot. Not the 'americanized-we-don't-want-to-make-it-too-hot-or-someone-might-sue-us' kind of hot. It's spicy goodness! Or... More

This little cafe is quite quaint in its decorative style. However, the food was fresh and very tasty. I had a burger and a salad, and it was quite good. Price-wise, it was affordable. Though the cafe is about a block off from the main street, it is worth the effort finding it. The service was very nice, too. Would... More

This is one of the best places to have breakfast at - forget the other places offering breakfast. Excellent food, very good service, reasonable prices, great omelets...(should be spelled OMLET :-)) It is hard to find a good breakfast restaurant here in Mammoth Lakes. Most are very overpriced and quality is low.

The food is excellent for this mountain café that draws equally from the permanent and transient populations of Mammoth. We almost always go there for breakfast. Service is good, there is not much ambiance, but who cares early in the morning when glasses of fresh squeezed o.j. perk us up, excellent eggs, toast, bacon, sausage, oatmeal selections.

This restaurant has a lot of hype in town. It lives up to the hype. Breakfast is delicious. The variety is not huge but there is something for everyone. The wait staff is pleasant. Service is prompt. The special with 2 eggs, bacon, and pancakes is enough for two people.
