a paradise of a place, beautiful the view and the way to get to it!you can eat from sandwiches to pies, everything fresh baked. prices are a bit expensive but understandable . you can reach it by car but the way by walking through the fields are more interesting. don´t miss a cappuccino there!

After a pretty steep 30-45 mi hike up Mt st John an iced coffee is sublime. View is nice. I was there n a hot and sunny day and found it cooler sitting outside the "glass house" after eating take the leisurely long way home(minimal acsent) cruisey.Make sure you have sunblock if it's sunny.

Crazy windy when we were here but stunning view, just had some coffees so don´t know about the food but it looked good. Walk up or drive your car, handy.

Astro cafe is situated on top of mt John, next to earth and sky observatory. The cafe has a stunning expansive view of the surrounding lakes and mountains. The food and beverage is however disappointing. The food was pricy for what could be easily assemble using ingredients from supermarket. We went in the middle of summer and there were quite a lot if flies in the shop and in the food cabinet. Coffee were all just average.

expensive! ordered a brownie at $8. it was so dry, one of the worst i've eaten. service was quite slow and staff mixed up orders, making my friend to cancel the order all together. what saved it was the amazing view.
