Had lunch here today while doing some Christmas shopping mostly at the Idyllewild Gift Shop. The food was good, nice atmosphere, and for the most part service was good. Had to take my order a second time - forgot to place the first time.

Been here twice now and will be back always when in Idyllwild. All breakfast items have been awesome! My fave is the loco moco, the gravy is ridiculously good! The juevos rancheros and the omelettes are also excellent!
