It's the PEOPLE that really make the experience at the Whitney Portal store. Not only are they the most friendly folks you would ever want to meet, but their vast knowledge of the area is unsurpassed by anyone. Oh ya, the food is just about all you could aske for when up enjoying time in the incredible Sierras, be it at the end or begnning of a hike or just being there for the day. A must do on anyones bucket list.

We camped at the bottom of the hill and noticed cars at night climbing the mountain. We decided to explore that road the next morning and it ended here. What an amazing store with large good food for breakfast with wonderful shopping items in the store. People are so friendly and the view is amazing. I will be back.

Where is California can you find a restaurant with the owner outside teaching his Grandson how to fish??? This place is the best. Food is wonderful and quick. Considering the drive and fact that they have to generate their own power I think it is under priced. Breakfast is awesome.
This Mom and Pop place is tops. The owner, Doug, will gladly stop what he is doing to offer instruction on climbing routes. A must do in Lone Pine.
During peak season when parking is at a premium you can park next to the store for an hour if you are dining.
Cashier Tanya is a doll. I wish she liked the smell of a cattle farm, I would take her to Madera but she said no!!!!!!!

Stopped before our Whitney Attempt. The staff was so helpful and patient. They even allowed returns on supplies we did not use. I love this place!
