We enjoyed a delicious breakfast there before hitting the trails. Homemade cinnamon rolls were delicious. We ordered sandwiches for the trail which were perfect and they have amazing fries!

There aren't a lot of choices in Baker and we were happy to find this place inside the national park and open! They have a varied menu and print out a new one for each person in view of the pandemic. I got the BLT...and it came grilled on artisan bread and was excellent. Hubby enjoyed the chili dog. Service was quick and you can browse the little store while you wait. They have an amazing selection of games and t shirts.More

This is located in the Lehman Caves visitors center inside the park (not at the other visitors center in Baker). Had lunch: a salad with meat, and a bbq pork wrap. Both good Ate outside on the patio due to Covid. A cut above normal...park food.More

The Great Basin Cafe, was part of our lodging package at the Hidden Canyon Ranch. So we visited the cafe for breakfast before the start of our day of exploring the park in the morning. I have to say that there were plenty of options...on their menu to satisfy the majority of peoples tastes. Out of three of us dining at the cafe over two days, we sampled 6 different entrees. All were satisfying and well seasoned. Portions were adequate for us, however, might be considered light for a hefty eater. Staff were very pleasant and fielded questions, and requests politely and promptly. Even though we received our breakfast options as part of our lodging package, the prices were very reasonable for our choices. Since you do have limits in regard to dining in this area, the option for in park dining that offers comfortable cost and lovely fare is quite a nice service to the visitors of this National Park. I have no doubt that any fare you chose at any time of the day at this cafe will be well prepared and pleasing to the palate........My only negative was the opening time....6:30 or 7AM would have allowed us an earlier start to our day in the Park.....They do a good job, folks!More

We visited in June of 2020 and had very little interaction with anyone while at GBNP but the 2 ladies at this little cafe were awesome. They were both very friendly and helpful while we ate and shopped with our 2 little boys. It is...people like this that can help make trip memories. Thank you! We had breakfast there and everything was delicious and the shop was very nice. The only negative, although no fault of their own, is that they had very few tshirts because of covid they were unable to get restocked.More

I had the pulled pork sandwich and my husband had the tri-tip and both were very good. Was a much-needed fuel break before our hike at the park.

Curly fries are a bit "salty" b/c they use "real" salt from the area, you can taste the difference. Cinnamon roasted almonds are to DIE for!

The waitress was very helpful and adjusting the menu choices to our wishes and food turned out to be appealing and quite tasty.

Most everything is in the $10 range. Not what I was looking for as I wanted a snack to keep me going until dinner. Ended up getting a chocolate shake. It was very thick but lacked much of any flavor. Kind of more like just...soft serve ice cream with a not-smooth texture. No thanks.More

Great Cafe and Gift Shop located right in the park. Good selection, wonderful tasting food, beautiful view from the huge windows as you eat. When you visit Great Basin National Park (and you should), be sure to check out this gem!
