After a long night in a cruddy motel room in Lee Vining, my dad and I didn't want to chance a bad meal before starting the day so we got the heck out of Dodge and cruised down to the June Lake Loop. The reviews for the Silver Lake Cafe were outstanding so we figured we'd give it a whirl. WOW! No kidding, hands down one of the best breakfasts we've ever had! The cafe is very small, maybe five or six tables and a counter that seats perhaps 8-10. Super cute with pine paneling and trophy fish on the walls. We signed in (with one couple ahead of us) and waited perhaps ten minutes. The service was fast and friendly. I ordered one of the scrambles (can't remember the name). The eggs were light and fluffy, the vegees (onions,mushrooms,red/green bell pepper) were nicely cooked with a little carmelization. There was also diced ham, bacon, and sausage which tasted like high quality meat. The scramble was topped with a 3 cheese grated blend. Yes, it is a heart attack on a plate, but what a way to go. I'm pretty sure there was a vegetarian option. The potatoes were cubed, perfectly seasoned and cooked. I selected sour dough toast and it was not soggy or burned, but just right. My dad had the Panhandler which consisted of two pancakes, one egg, and two slices of bacon. The egg (over-medium) was done just right. The pancakes were delicious, and the bacon not too crisp and not undercooked. My dad said the coffee was excellent. I believe my meal was around nine bucks, and my dad's seven. Oh...our meals arrived at the table within five minutes of ordering. Does it get any better? Our great dining experience at the Silver Lake Diner assuaged our ruffled feathers from the Lee Vining debacle and we left there very happy campers!
