Lots of options, my husband had huevos rancheros and I had Eggs Benedict. Both were well prepared and the service was very good. They kept checking on us and kept coffee flowing

Our waitress was so sweet and attentive, a great combination to go along with a delicious breakfast. Ham and potatoes were excellent and everyone enjoyed the many Benedict options.

This is a great restaurant for families (the kids choices are great - we ate 3 meals here!) and also for healthy adults who like options.

Everything was great except the potatoes were a bit too salty. Eggs were perfect, pancakes fluffy and hot. Service good, and it was New Year's day. Lots of hot coffee!

This place is one of the best places for breakfast in Mammoth. I wish they would let me bring my dog to the terrace, i would give them five stars. The breakfast food is solid!

We had burgers and burritos on a weeknight over the holiday break. Service was reasonable, althought I had to ask to get my water glass refilled. Portions tend to be large, so ask for a to go box.

Fresh healthy food in a family-friendly, casual atmosphere. Pretty affordable for Mammoth. They have a gluten-free menu as well. Friendly, attentive staff... We had dinner there twice during our stay, and both times were very good - very fresh salads, fresh produce... Yummy..

Delicious breakfast meals! They had no problem with a large party of 6. We ate practically everything on the menu and each dish was scrumptious. I especially loved the ranchero dish and the side fried Serrano peppers for spicy food lovers like me. My son ate the crab cake eggs Benedict and my son's girlfriend ate the eggs Benedict with...

Despite the high number of Angelinos who visit Mammoth each winter, this popular restaurant that will fill you with carbs to last the whole day. No diet food here. No chi chi gluten free options. The portions are big (!) and the coffee refills are unlimited. You won't need lunch after one of their hearty breakfasts.
