Came here for dinner on a Sunday night - wasn't too crowded. Ordered the pesto chicken sandwich with zucchini fries. Zucchini fries were really good and the pesto chicken sandwich was solid as well. The hot apple cider tasted a bit watery.

I looked around for something light but healthy to eat for lunch This place was recommended and I was not disappointed. Choose the soup of the day, it was homemade, tasty (and not not deep fried!) I can recommend this for anyone, ask and you will receive!

We had breakfast and dinner at the good life cafe during our vacation to california. The cafe serves excellent breakfast, including huge stacks of pancakes with masses of blueberries on top, exciting burritoes and great coffee. Dinner was great, too in a very friendly athmosphere!

If you are tired of Breakfast Club and Base Camp Cafe (both of which I highly recommend) or its getting a bit late in the day, head over to the Good Life Cafe for a wonderful meal and service. Tucked away on Old Mammoth Road behind the now-closed Chart House restaurant, this gem of a restaurant has a great menu... More

Took family there for lunch, it was great. No problem with substitutions for dietary needs. The staff are all great, and the price is right too.

Long line when we first walked in, but we seated quickly. Drinks were brought quick as well. The menu is interesting, breakfast lunch and dinner items but a mix of American and Mexican food.. I got a veggie eggs Benedict with a side of Mexican rice. MHMMMMM so good, rice had great flavor! I finally got my hash browns! ❤

Great place for some Java to go if you happen to be in east Mammoth and away from all the other commercial centers.

Planned to go here for dinner tonight. Their website indicated open until 9pm. Arrived there at 5pm and they were closed. Big disappointment as was a place we usually eat when we are in Mammoth.

Thank Frank G
