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.

Breakfast here was decent with a mexican twist - big portions, good but not great. Efficient service, very popular, o.k for the price.

Tried the fish tacos and pork chops. The positives were that the pork was decent and the portions were generous. The negatives being the fish tacos were seriously under seasoned and and the baked potato was very dry. Very average experience but i may have just came in at an off day as all the other reviews seem to be... More

We showed up with a group of 15 and they took great care of us. Our food was delicious and the portions were massive. The chili verde burritos were the best.

Driving south on 395 to Bishop, we luckily decided to try the Good Life Cafe in Mammoth. It turned out to be a great place for lunch. The food and service were both very good. I ordered a great toasted turkey and tomato sandwich while she had a late breakfast egg. Busy with many locals. Highly recommended.

It helps that I fell in love with Mammoth Lakes as soon as we arrived and this cute diner/cafe elevated that even further. Service was better than some of the best restaurants I've ever been too, our host - Karen, worked the room like no one I've ever seen. The food was delicious and the menu extensive. Be sure not...

This place is a great find. Service was spot on, courteous and fast. Food was excellent, be warned that the buttermilk pancakes are big, but oh so good. You can't go wrong here.

We had had mixed breakfast visits during our Mammoth stay but this place hit the spot. Great food and service as well as good prices made for a good start to the day. Easy parking and it just gets better.

The Good Life Cafe had some different choices on their menu. We shared a stuffed pork chop and vegetables. The food was pretty good--well cooked, and well seasoned. We heard a lady at the next table trying to order food that was gluten, fat, etc-free. They were trying very hard to accommodate her dietary needs. I was impressed with that.... More

Visited for dinner and had some nice wholesome food. Warning big serves. My 8 yo son really enjoyed a nice bowl of fresh steamed vegetables. The chiken stir fry was good. We went back for breakfast and had pancakes with fruit. Again beware the full stack is HUGE. friendly family service. Highly recommended.

Thank Tim B
