Service was a little slow but this was the best oatmeal I've ever had in America. My wife thought that the poached eggs were slightly overcooked but I didn't care; I had the oatmeal.

We had a quick breakfast before hiking for the day in Yosemite. It was good. They seemed a little under the pump and it wasn't full of people. The food was yummy. The only thing I thought was a little odd, they charge you $1 more if you want free range/organic eggs. I feel like you should only be offering... More

This is a moderately priced place to eat in Mariposa, with daily specials, cheerful service, and inventive cooking. They also have an old-timey soda fountain counter, and make sundae's in the old tulip glasses. They do breakfast to Supper, closed Mondays. N.B. Had dinner and breakfast there.

My wife and I ate here this morning before heading into Yosemite for the day. The restaurant is centrally located and is a short walk from our motel. The hostess was friendly and attentive and the food was good. It all tasted fresh with not a hint of greasiness. They have killer homemade biscuits! I highly recommend.

Completely enjoyed our experience at the Sugar Pine Cafe! We asked other servers where to eat - and two of them said "Sugar Pine Cafe!" They weren't wrong. Easy walk downtown and great menu items. Nice way to start our day!

A little slow on service due to the amount of customers, almost always busy, ask to be served by Lisa, she's the best great service with a big smile

Very busy place in the morning; seemed a mix of locals and guests. Husband and I both had egg scrambles with plenty of ham in them. His hash browns were wonderfully crispy, and the cheese grits did my southern soul good. And the biscuit...so large it was hard to bite, and crunchy on the outside and tender on the inside.... More
