My son and I visited Reds Meadow while backpacking the JMT. Not much variety, but the food was awesome, delicious and filling! The staff were great and friendly. It was very difficult to get back on the trail after stopping here.

What a great place to start your day off before taking a hike to Devil's PostPile or Rainbow Falls. This cafe makes an excellent home style French Toast that I just love! Their home-fries are also excellent. The wait staff is very nice and welcoming....More

When you have completed a long, hot dusty hike to Devil's Postpile and Rainbow Falls, NOTHING tastes better than an old fashioned milkshake at the Mule House Cafe...NOTHING! Made in stainless steel containers with copious amounts of ice cream, they are a reminder of how...More
