Cute little wooden lodge. Perfect if you are camping and you run out of firewood or forget your Hotdogs for the kids.

Mother's Kitchen is a little jewel tucked away on the way to Mount Palomar Observatory. It's fairly basic accommodation (wooden floors, small wooden cabin) but the food is delightful. Vegetarians are well catered for - itself rare in the USA. A bowl of the vegetarian chili was just what we needed on a cold, wet afternoon, and the hunk of bread served with it was excellent.

All in all, an excellent little place; highly recommended.

Was shocked to find a vegetarian spot in the mountains but loved everything we tried! Staff was friendly and I think were pleasantly surprised that we were excited about the vegetarian menu (sounds like some biker-types come in upset there are not burgers, etc).

Shortened hours during the week and they close at 4 every day so beware the hours!

A beautiful spot, and friendly staff, fresh food in a pleasant shady garden. Good huevos rancheros. Personally I dislike soya mince, which is the main constituent of many of the dishes, so was a bit disappointed as I'm a vegetarian and was excited to visit a veggie roadside restaurant, but there are a few options that don't include it.

We didn't plan breakfast well on our way to the Palomar Observatory but this little gem turned out to be a great find! 3 stack of pancakes my teenager couldn't finish (too much food), eggs cooked to order, delicious french toast too! Couldn't ask for better!

Limited menu (breakfast) but enough to please everyone in our party.

Pastries looked delicious, must try them next visit.

Friendly and pleasant staff.
