Located in a local strip mall, we found GLC because I had looked on Trip Advisor. They had great breakfast specials and all ingredients fresh. No frills, small local cafe. Would go back and recommend if you're into simple, but yummy!

Really enjoyed my simple breakfast there. I am picky about my eggs. Asked for scrambled soft and ate it all!!! Nice crispy bacon. Will definitely go back again!

The food here was good. It was pretty empty and it took a long time for food to arrive. So understand that you are getting a healthy meal and it's going to be a wait.

We eat here many times while we are in mammoth. The food is always delicious and there is such variety. It's nice they do breakfast until 3pm.

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
