We stopped at this cafe on our way to Calaveras Big Trees. They had a nice variety of sandwiches available, along with coffee and tea drinks and desserts. Both our sandwiches were delicious and hearty. I’m so glad we stopped here.

Got a large zebra frappucino for teens split into 2 cups, $5. Appreciated staff splitting drink w/o any extra charge. Not super friendly but nice to have the option in such a small town.
