This was one of the best meals we had during our Yosemite vacation. It was quick, simple, tasty, and not overpriced. There aren't a lot of choices, but everything is made fresh and there is plenty to eat. Tables and benches outside offer wonderful views and comfortable eating.

Fill your water bottle, relax outside - Tuna and Caprese sandwiches were reasonably priced, freshly prepared. Good place for a break after some outdoor activity.

We came here for lunch during our trip to Yosemite and were impressed with the quality and value of our lunch given what we feel is normal for National Parks' food. Our sandwiches were fresh, delicious, and well-sized and the wide selection of snacks and beverages is great. We really enjoyed having lunch here. Keep in mind - they stop... More

Oh dear, We were staying in the Park and went here one evening for our meal. Three ordered the rice dishes and one pasta. Stood in line for 45 mins to get served - so slow! Our meals were inedible however as the shredded carrots that were placed on top reeked of chlorine! We literally couldn't eat it. Staff there... More

The sandwiches and offering of other snacks and drinks is very good. Be aware the lines to order can be very long but once you order it goes quickly

I guess. You are a bit of a captive audience at a park like Yosemite so have to take what is on offer.

My husband ordered the Italian and I had the chicken Waldorf. They were both exceptionally fresh (made in front of you) and good. Best place in Yosemite National Park for sandwiches.

Once we found this place (Trip Advisor had wrong address) it was great. Really good fresh sandwich that really hit the spot after hiking. We definitely recommend if you're in the mood for something quick, easy, fresh and inexpensive.

Degnan's offers 10 different deli sandwich choices in the $7-$10 range and each can be customized somewhat. The assembly line operation is efficient and friendly, so even when there's a long line it moves along briskly. The outdoor patio has many tables either in the shade or sun, so you can relax and enjoy your tasty fresh sandwich before heading... More
