“Worth checking out”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 19, 2014 via mobile

We had dinner here when we stayed in town on our way to Yesomite. The Cafe was lovely and we were really impressed. Servers were friendly, great food. Nothing fancy but it hit the spot. The Mr had steak and reckons it's the best meal he's had on our 2 week road trip. I had the nachos which I really enjoyed.
Worth a visit

“Disappointing...”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 18, 2014

We sadly decided to eat at Totem Cafe during a recent visit to Lone Pine. I honestly can't think of anything nice to say. The service was slow, the atmosphere was nothing to speak of. The food was not good. We had dinners ranging from steak to pork chops to raviolis, no one was happy. Salads consisted of lettuce only and 2 slivers of tomato. It seems like there are lots of other decent restaurants in lone pine... save your self the disappointment and try somewhere else.

“Always a quality meal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2014

The Asian chicken salad is a top favorite, and the blue cheese burger is the best in town. Try the fries if you love crispy fries...

“There's No Place Like Home”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2014

Cute small restaurant. You can tell locals go there. My waitress was very accommidating as I was placing an order to go. Not a thing was missing & the food was great! My only suggestion would be that they offer a BBQ rib & chicken combo.

“Friendly, tasty, piece of history”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014 via mobile

I had chicken and fries last night; the side salad was super fresh, the server was over worked, but efficient and friendly. Very good local beer. And this gem has carved signatures of the early 50s stars that made movies nearby. Give them a try. And remember, you are on vacation. So, be nice!
