I had a wonderful Oriental chicken salad here, and my husband had a tuna melt with fries. Their fries are amazing, much better than average. There were dried cranberries in the chicken salad, along with mandarin oranges and a lot of chow mein noodles. The dressing was wonderful. We will definitely be back here.

We stopped in Lone Pine after a long day of skiing, and were very hungry. We walked down the main road and stopped here because of the aroma coming from within! A small place, only one lady working when we sat down but she had it under control. Small menu, but exhausted as we were, simple was great. We ordered... More

I was craving ribs and the BBQ joint was closed, another resturant we went to did not have them - then as we were wandering around I saw the Totem Cafe sign - RIBS - and they are not to be missed !

I had a late breakfast here on my visit to Lone Pine. The menu is what you would expect to find in any diner in America. The food was average. The service was slow, given that only two other tables in the place were occupied. The coffee was mediocre. You can't go wrong having breakfast here. You just won't rave... More

We were looking for a steak dinner and this restaurant had the best selection of steak. Priced too high however but still the food was good. Servers were very nice.

Stopped in here because I was hungry, I choose a steak and ordered extra onions & mushrooms. The menu says they use the best quality meat, it was not that tender.. then the onions were red onions fried...yuk! When I questioned this I was told "we only use red onions" Overpriced for substandard food.

I was looking for a particular place that had been recommended, but realized this was probably not it. But I was starving and decided to stay and eat. I just missed breakfast by minutes, and had been craving home fries. I ordered from the lunch menu, starting with a cup of chili, then a "Philly cheesesteak." The chili was good.... More

Food is more diner than cafe-- if you like standard American diner breakfasts, this will be right up your alley. Good prices on hearty plates of bready things, eggs, sausage, etc. They'll even do you a steak, if that's you're thing. I'm a vegan and the only thing on their menu for me was oatmeal, but hey, it was good... More
