Saw the restaurant advertised in the motels "book", looked on Tripadviser and then off we went to find it.

You could park right outside if you wanted.

We had to wait a few minutes to be seated but as this is a family run place you can understand why and they were busy.

My OH says it's the best burger he's ever had (and he's just become an OAP!). Mine was pretty good too.

Definite gem of a find, just what you need when you are the road.

My review of Mount Whitney walks a fine line.. First, I love their building and the decorations. It has all of the pictures of the movies that were filmed here. It also has a nice rustic feel that makes you feel like you are in the Owen's Valley.

Breakfast is above average, lunch is too, but the dinner menu is where things start to fall apart. I am not sure where to put them. They are about the same as Totem Cafe.. With the chicken, vegetables, etc... it is hit or miss.. Even their burgers which is a main stay there is just something missing.

I love their shakes! They do a good job of that. We had a strawberry shake and a banana shake and they both tasted fresh.

Their service is great! At least the people I met all seemed to be very interested in serving and were kin and patient.

We had a tasty breakfast that varied from eggs to french toast to bisquits and gravy. Everyone was happy. Portions were ample.... no need for lunch that day! They were busy, and I think had only one server.... but she seemed to keep up alright. Prices seemed about right. The atmosphere was typical coffee shop. The tasty food makes it worth a breakfast stop.

I have eaten at the Mt. Whitney Restaurant several times, and while it is not a luxury restaurant (nor am I inclined to visit one), the service has always been good, the food prepared as expected, and is more like back home and mom's cooking. Always enjoy looking at the photos of old western stars who frequented the Lone Pine area during the heyday of the black and white westerns. Beats fast food any day!

Good for eggs. We stopped in for a coffee and stayed for breakfast. Just your typical breakfast of eggs and toast. Nothing to complain or rave about.
