Stopped there for a breakfast burrito this morning on our way into the park. They didn't warn us how large they were and actually shared one. Simple cafe but good coffee in a nice mug, friendly and fast counter help.

We just called by to pick up ingredients for a picnic lunch. The sandwiches at $7.95 plus tax were heroic.

I always eat here when I'm anywhere nearby. The food is excellent. The pork chops are always good as well as the meat loaf and fish tacos.

We stop even if we aren't hungry. This time we bought wonderful multi layered chocolate cake and coffee to go....And we love the swell gift shop. But the gas sure is expensive at the little Mobil gas station in Lee Vining!

A walk up cafe that does provide some good food and plenty of seating options inside or out. It feels much more like a school cafeteria than a restaurant. But the burgers were good and service pleasant.

The food here was bland. But what shocked me was that all the staff were preparing food with their bare hands. They were not wearing gloves or using utensils to put French fries on plates, put toppings on the fish tacos, etc. Yikes!

There is a great grassy patio area with tables outside, great view, great for dogs. Several diners had their dogs with them when we dined.
