This food is good not great, the environment is nice and the staff are friendly. Water is served in glass jars, I'm not a fan of this type of kitsch, what's wrong with nice glasses? Overall a nice place but a little overpriced.

The Mile High Cafe offers a good selection of reasonably priced, well-prepared food at reasonable prices and with excellent service. Who could ask for more? I had a Ruben sandwich and it was delicious.

My go-to place for breakfast next time I come to Idyllwild. Excellent choice of breakfast items - steel cut oatmeal, lemon blueberry ricotta pancakes to die for. Pleasant staff and great decor inside and out.

Everything on their Breakfast menu is delicious! We even indulged in the waffle with ice cream, which was heavenly. Our family had the Lemon Ricotta pancakes, breakfast burrito and Eggs Benedict. All Wonderful. Don't forget the fresh squeezed orange juice!

As you can tell by my reviews I almost always get a hamburger and this was no different, but it was excellent and that usually means the other offerings are up to snuff too.

A quaint cafe exterior hides a smart, upscale interior. Excellent food - solid professional service! The patio was particularly nice on the day we visited...still able to take in the live yet unobtrusive piano music.
