Really good breakfast. Lots of choice and friendly staff. Chairs were a bit threadbare but otherwise we were comfortable.

Food taste so-so. Cost more than expected. Large quantity. It's a cool place to rest after visiting Badwater in a summer day.

Not a lot of options when your in Death Valley unless you brought your own so it's a little challenging because your captive but this was actually pretty decent. I liked the burger with the Dante sauce.

Our Trip to Death Valley put us right past the Furnace Creek Resort where we stopped on our way from the visitor center to have breakfast before tackling Badwater. The menu has good omelet choices and it is a pretty good size. The hash browns were a little over-cooked but in general the meal was good. This is a good... More

We stayed at Furnace Creek for a few days, used the cafe for breakfast each morning & dinner once. The service was always good & friendly, the food was good (meatloaf to die for!!) It's not the cheapest place to eat - but you are a captive audience & in the National Park!! We have no complaints!!

The vegetarian burger was really delicious. It has the other usual options of a cafe. Burgers, turkey sandwich etc. Prices were on the high side but didn't feel gauged considering the options are few and far between. Great place to stop for lunch

Ate here while staying at furnace creek. The food was fine, the sort of food and place you would go to, because you need something to eat and there is not a lot of choice rather than for a nice meal. Admit my first impression was "really? - you want me to eat here" but actually enjoyed the food. Service... More
