If you do not partake in the breakfast buffet, which has fresh fruit and other delicious goodies, try the Monte Cristo sandwich with the strawberry preserve on top.

I am a vegetarian and I wanted more than the salad bar. They modified the angel hair with shrimp and left off the shrimp. It was great. I also got the salad bar with it. It was more than I expected from a restaurant salad bar. It had a little of everything which included a great ambrosia salad. I was... More

What's not to like? Very nice dining room, tasty well prepared food and one of the best servers (Jose?) we've ever had. Had the garlic shrimp pasta, clam chowder, French dip and onion rings. All delicious. Looked at the soup and salad bar on the way out and plan to return for that.

Our waitresses - Kassie - was very nice and accommodating. She helped us with everything we need. In general, the Fish (grilled salmon) and the pizza were surprisingly VERY good! Have a few open hours, so keep that in mind. Got an older ambiance to the place, a bit diner like. Also have a groupon, so try and use it... More

We dined here while on vacation trip to Sequoia National Park. The atmosphere is great! We had a pleasant evening dining here. We had great service from the staff. Our waiter,Ganero, made great suggestions for entrees. We did order the specials which were well prepared and nicely seasoned. We dined here on a Monday evening and at this time there... More

My wife and I were celebrating our anniversary, and we decided to try someplace new. The service will not win any speed awards, as it seemed they were a little short-staffed, but for our intent, it was a perfect pace. We were not in a hurry, and were quite content in one-another's company. The food was fantastic. My wife ordered... More

I had the prime French dip sandwich and onion rings! It was incredible! Seriously! Best onion rings I've had in a long time!!! Good service and nice atmosphere! I'd eat there again!

On the morning of 7/10/2016, my husband, son and I decided to go out for breakfast and use the groupon coupon we had purchased for Cafe California. When we got there around 9:45am, the sign said to please wait to be seated, but yet there was no hostess to be found to seat people. After waiting 10 minutes to be... More

Food was okay, service was lacking. The coffee was horrible. Got food before the silverware. Drinks were empty most of the meal. The French onion soup had a burned flavor. Pizza was okay. Shrimp carbonara was good. Bruschetta was good. Hamburger and salad bar was good. If you need to ask for silverware and drinks most of the night, you... More

We stayed at the Wyndham, within which the Cafe California is located, the night before. Included with our room stay was a complimentary breakfast. The Cafe is a nice welcoming, large, well-lite, clean space just around the left corner from the lobby. The morning offering was a nice buffet, which included juices, coffees, milk, dry cereal, oatmeal, scrambled eggs, sausage... More
