I've been coming to Mammoth forever. Good Life Cafe is the best breakfast place in town. Great breakfast burritos, sure, but fabulous chili Verde rancheros or the shredded beef rancheros! Daily specials, fresh squeezed juices...carrot, orange, grapefruit.... Casual seating, great food, reasonable prices.

My husband is vegan and eating while traveling can be a challenge. We had a nice meal, for a very reasonable price at Good Life Cafe.

Best Chile Verde Omelet I've ever had. Everything else was great too. You might have to wait for a table but worth it IMHO. Fast service, the team is always moving quick and everthing is served hot and tasty. Staff is so friendly too.

Excellent place to eat! Healthy options, excellent IPA craft beer and such wonderful service quality. Richard was our waiter, and he was the best. Don’t forget to try the homemade apple pie!

This is a good basic cafe for breakfast. The pancakes were good and the french toast was fine. The prices were very reasonable. It was packed but the service was friendly and made sure we knew we weren't forgotten.

Lady Mary S Have a blast is Mammoth! What would you order if they did not have omelette on the menu? I was in Oxnard on Sunday and saw 3 grey whales during whale watching :-)
