We stayed the night in Lone Pine, and this place was recommended to us. We both ordered the Flatiron Steak dinner, and they were very good. We saw people who ordered milkshakes, and they came in the old fashioned metal cups and tall glasses--a LARGE...More

We stopped here on the way from Death Valley to Lee Vining. The cafe has authentic charm, service was nice and both the breakfast burrito and the pancakes we ate were very nice.
