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

Remembering much of the Park is closed and/or short staffed during the winter months, we were disappointed to find that this much advertised place only had 1 worker behind the counter. We got our beverages from a cooler and sat in a cold cafeteria type room. 'Nuf said - maybe we'll have better luck in Spring.

Get your potato chips, drinks, mediocre sandwiches here, sit at somewhat dirty tables to enjoy. At least it's only mildly overpriced.

This is a quick, inexpensive way to "fuel up". I especially enjoyed their green pea soup. If you are lucky enough to get close to their corner, small fireplace, then this is especially nice--with good views.

The deli staff are efficient and respond to personal requests within limited pantry. The sandwiches are generous and the soup and chili self serve is handy. Beverages are limited.
