Always try to stop here on trips to Yosemite. Breakfast and lunch are great. A varied menu and a great chef. prices are are good as well. The baked goods are fresh daily and a treat.

Small menu, but they have the basic diner food. Friendly service. I liked that the burger wasn't a frozen preformed patty. My overall experience was good here.

This restaurant is a big breakfast spot in downtown Mariposa, and was very crowded on the Thanksgiving week end of our visit. Only after we were seated, enjoying our hot drinks, did we hear that there was only one cook in the kitchen, so we would be waiting some more. We had waited 20 minutes in line for a table... More

We visited for late breakfast on the Sunday of Thanksgiving weekend. It was busy as was hotel checkout time. We elected to sit at the counter as there were seats available. It was fun to watch the cook and see the dynamics of a busy breakfast shift. It was quite a wait for our food but that was OK as... More

Stopped in for breakfast before heading to Yosemite. Classic diner fair including excellent hash browns, crispy on the outside and moist inside. The eggs were cooked to perfection. Not a huge menu, but we weren't looking for extravagance either.

I'm a fried egg and bacon kind of girl because it's a hard meal to screw up. That being said, we were seated at a booth behind the cook, so I had some time to sit and watch him work. (That's one of the reasons I like open diners. You can see how much care and how efficient someone is... More

Got a recommendation for this cafe at the visitor center. Good tip. Friendly, fast service. Stopped on our way to Yosemite for a quick lunch. We had the Tuna melt and Club Sandwich. Their fryer was acting up so did not have the fries, instead had the split pea soup, which was excellent. If you are looking for a place... More

We waited nearly 30 minutes for a table. It's a tiny cafe, so we understood the wait. However, it would have been better service if someone greeted us and directed us to sign in for a table. We're from out of town and didn't know about this until a waitress yelled out "JOHN!" or some other guy's name. They need... More
