I had heard about this popular cafe in this very small town in the mountains. Going for lunch, I found the menu full of wonderful-looking offerings for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The hostess was very friendly and made some suggestions for lunch. We decided on the French dip sandwich, Philly style and the cranberry, cashew chicken salad sandwich. French fries... More

Grabbed dinner here recently while working in the area. The service was rather slow and indifferent but the menu is fairly extensive and the food was very good overall. The place wasn't busy and there were two servers so not sure why the service was average at best but the food came out quickly and the portions were large. There... More

We were looking for a nice café style place for lunch and found the Crestline Café to be just the ticket. We tried a different place earlier but walked out after not even getting a drink order taken within about 5 minutes. Quite the opposite experience at the Crestline Café. We were seated promptly and were given our water quickly.... More

Such a wide variety on their menu! Went here with the project manager for our renovation work. Had the monte cristo sandwich, which I loved! It was huge, like two triangular double sized donuts! It was delicious, and I had another meal out of it. While the seating seamed to be missing stuffing underneath, I didn't mind. This was a... More
