Traveling a long the 5 freeway heading towards Shasta Caverns we saw it was nearly lunch time. Since the cavern detour was about two hours long we decide to stop here for lunch. The food was great and the service couldn’t have be better.

Visited for Breakfast, and somewhat pricey but not really for California, the food was great and portions were huge. I asked the local hotel where to go, and this was the first one they recommended, and understandably so.

Our family owned mountain cafe takes pride in serving hearty and healthy breakfast all day and lunch after 11am. We use the freshest and most flavorful ingredients possible to create our, mostly from scratch, full menu. We offer many vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options. We source Willamette Valley fresh eggs, applewood smoked bacon, New Mexican green chile, Prather Ranch beef and Kennebeck potatoes. Our fresh baked muffins, scones, cinnamon rolls and pastries are perfect to grab with a coffee or latte! We grind Peet’s beans for our complete espresso bar. Whether traveling on I-5 or enjoying the beauty of the north state, we hope you drop by for a visit.
