We found this place only because of the reviews on Trip Advisor. We stopped for lunch on our way back from Yosemite. What a treat! They made my day with gluten free offerings and let me purchase GF bread for use on my trip. The menu was broad and the food was outstanding. Try the special dipping sauce for the sweet potato fries our waiter, Carlos, was helpful on helping local services and was very attentive.

We were on our way from Yosemite to San Francisco and were looking for a place to stop for lunch. I had read about Toni's Courtyard Cafe and decided that we would stop there but I realized that they might close before we got there. I called and spoke to the owner. She told us not to worry and not to rush as she was working on getting ready for a catering event and would wait for us even though we would be arriving after closing time. Not only did she wait, but she asked us what we wanted and had it all ready when we arrived. On top of everything, she gave us very helpful advice on the easiest and quickest way to approach San Francisco in rush hour. The food was plentiful and delicious. What an outstanding experience!

This place is a gem in Merced. The Greek chicken salad is awesome, the sweet potato fries delicious and their five cheese grilled sandwich fantastic. They have also really great options for breakfast as well.

We stopped here for lunch on the way to Yosemite from Napa after reading tripadvisor reviews. Great that we did as it is well worth it. So much so that on the way back to the coast we went out of our way to stop for breakfast. Good value, great food, friendly service. If you're anywhere close - stop here!
