Good sandwiches

We were advised by another visitor to go to the deli counter rather than buying pre prepared sandwiches-was great advice. A really good range and made up to order for fussy kids!

Great spot for hot food after a long hike. We brought a sac lunch the day before and were excited for a hot meal for lunch after hiking to Vernal Fall the next day. The pizza at Degnan's hit the spot. Even took a slice home for a late night snack in the hotel room.

This place was always busy during my visit to Yosemite Village. Many picnic tables outside the cafe with curious (and daring) squirrels and birds - watch your lunch! I visited in order to use the WiFi, it's the only WiFi available in the park. I wanted to upload my bajillion photos and the broadband was nice & strong. If you... More

Degnan's is THE place in the Valley to visit for a lunch for hiking. Deli makes fantastic sandwiches to order, with selections to satisfy all in our family, including vegetarians. Sandwiches are HUGE, easily enough for two adults to share. Grab a sandwich, some chips and fruit and hit the trails!

For a café inside Yosemite, I was expecting outrageous prices. I was wrong! Prices were very reasonable (4-7$), good variety of sandwiches, salads, drinks, packaged food, and more, and a great location!

I've eaten everywhere in Yosemite and this is the best value cafe or eating place. Rolls are freshly filled for $8 and unlimited chilli is available. Top tip for a family

Degnan's, we soon discovered, has lots of people at it in Yosemite Valley because it has wifi. Or rather, mostly it has wifi. Not on the two days we were there, though ! The first day there was no wifi at all (for which the staff did apologise). The second day it was officially working, only not quite - and... More

They do fresh sandwiches (ala Subway) but withsome great choices. Good place to grab a drink or snack. Fast service despite the long line.
