This cafe does have a monopoly but it could do better, the food selection was limited and there was no real espresso coffee available. I recognise that at times they must have to cope with hordes of people but it didn't live up to its...More

So much potential for such a grand location. One machine was down. Another was the main provider for hot cocoa, mochas, espresso, etc. This is the kind of machine you see in a college cafeteria and even those are better. So imagine paying Starbucks prices...More

Had a delicious snack at the cafe and gift shop. Really tasty selections at reasonable prices. Self serve is the order of the day. Nice balcony overlooking forest and mountains and car park. Gift shop has great stuff.

If you are making the Rim Drive around Crater Lake, this is about your only option for lunch. The building itself is beautiful. Nice views from outside seating or upstairs. The seating downstairs in the food serving area is fairly small. Only 4 or 5...More

Do not assume this is better than any other National Park cafe - service is slow, food is mediocre and there is a limited selection, and it is overpriced. That said we did eat there, where else are you going to go other than the...More
