We had a later start than we had hoped going into Lassen Nat'l Park. There isn't much in the way of places to eat along Rt. 89 from I5 heading to Lassen. Old Station was our last hope. It turned out to be our good fortune to find JJ's Cafe. It wasn't like we had a choice! During the ride you pass a number of cattle ranches. My wife and I commented someone should open a buger and chili joint. They didn't have the chili but the burgers were fantastic. I happen to be a big fan of a good buger and this was really one of the best I have ever had a a restaraunt. I ordered mine with the complimentary cole slaw. The burger was a 1/2 Lb. patty with grilled mushrooms and cheddar cheese. You can add the topings you want when you order. It comes on a big plate with all your fixings. You need the big plate to hold everything. The cole slaw was also fantastic. It's a small place with a simple menu and very good service. Meals are about $10 and the drinks are a bit extra. They advertise as a baked goods store but we skipped right to the main course and we left very satisfied we had found the buger joint we had been hoping to find. I hihgly recommend this place. One word of caution, they close the grill at 3PM so you need to get there for lunch. We left at 2:45 and they weren't taking any more sit downs since that was "close enough' to closing time.

This is a great place for breakfast or lunch. Very friendly staff, clean, Large portions. No matter if you are having breakfast or lunch you will not be disappointed, for breakfast try the cornbeef hash which is homemade by the owners & lunch I would try the sourdough ruben sandwich. Then take with you the yummy cinnamon carmel pull apart bread to have around the campfire. They are only open til 3:00pm & they shut off the orders @2:45.

We enoyed a wonderful lunch of homemade soup and sandwiches. All their bread is baked on site. The staff was friendly, too. Our server mentioned that the cafe was closing for five months on the first of November.
