Ingredients are fresh and good quality. I had a Capresse sandwich and it was made with a whole fresh mozzarella cheese, fresh basil and tomatoes... great!

I always stop by here for a sandwich or their chili. Food quality is great, and employees are very friendly. Large variety of food to choose from, including pre-packaged. And don't forget a shortbread cookie.

We were surprised that the one and only "cheaper" lunch during winter did not bleed our pockets dry of cash! Not only were the prices reasonable but the food was decent. There were options for all and the staff was willing to help us out (peanut allergy). Kudos!

great food when you're looking for something lighter or less expensive than the Lodge or Curry buffet.

ok, so we didn't find out about this place until we were leaving the park. We saw it & stopped in just to see what they had as we has already had breakfast at Curry Village.

It was ok for park food. The day I was there it was extremely busy and I think most of the customers were a bit confused on how their system works. I am glad they are there.

Food in Yosemite National Park is a bit of a challenge. Lots of carbs and basic food. The line here is long at 1:30 pm....for a reason! The deli sandwich was fresh, wonderful and very reasonable on cost! $6.50 for a large fat Caprese sandwich. Best meal of our trip. Sitting at the outside tables on a sunny day just... More
