Good food, great service, friendly staff when we were there on Sunday. Even when busy, or if you need to wait if you have a large group, they have always been accommodating with seating. Interesting local photographs and stories line the wall. Eaten here many time, and NEVER had a disappointing experience.

Unfriedly Personel urged us to pay before finished the dinner. In the Pasta and Caesars Salad there were hairs :( and not tasteful at all. Only positive: Huge portions - but that does not help. NOT recommendable !

We wanted to try this for something different. We had the chili verde and the shrimp scampi and both were pretty good. Nice option for a reasonable dinner.

We enjoyed the quiche with soup and salad, and the salmon burger. Great quality, and the service with a smile made sure we will be back to try the breakfast!

After 4 days of everything with fries, we were looking for something fresh and tasty. The food on the menu was varied and tempting. The food was freshly cooked and suitable for vegetarians and meat eaters alike. Well worth a visit if you in the area.

Large enough to accommodate a group of 9 and has outdoor seating as well, a plus in the summer in Mammoth :-) Food was delicious and plentiful. The blueberry pancakes had quite a bit of fresh blueberries!! Was delicious. A nice variety of food and breakfast items served until 3pm which is great! We used to go to The Stove... More

Been there twice, once for breakfast and again for lunch. Good food: omelettes, sandwiches, Mexican food, and more. Service during busy lunch hour was very slow: 15 minutes to get our orders taken, long wait for the food and even to get the bill. Server was not super nice either. Will come again

Great terrace, yummy, large omelettes, great muffins, very convenient location, and warm service. Perfect place to get breakfast before a day of climbing or hiking.

We were staying in the hotel next door and walked round to this cafe for breakfast after reading reviews. It's located on a small retail site and is fairly inconspicuous. We were seated quickly and the menu has a wide range of items all reasonably priced. Everything looked clean and well kept inside the cafe. We had an omelette which... More
