We were leaving Yosemite and heading for Santa Cruz. We have never traveled this area and had no idea where to stop for lunch. Drove around the turn and saw 20 plus cars in the parking lot! Always a good sign. We sat on the outside deck overlooking the valley. The food was very good, beer was cold, and the prices mid-range.
We thought it would take a long time because there were so many people there ahead of us but the server was great, and our order came out earlier than we ever expected.

My husband and I found this excellent little Cafe whilst looking for somewhere to eat during our stay at Pine Mountain Lake. Needless to say we ate here every night during our stay. Perched high on a corner with amazing views, the food was delicious. The service was great and the beers icy cold. The bugs can be annoying, but the food is so good, you don't even notice. I highly recommend the black bean burger.

We weren't really expecting a lot from the local restaurants but we were pleasantly surprised at Priest Station Cafe! We had the pulled pork sandwich, bratwurst and the rib eye dinner. Everything was good! Service was also nice. Highly recommend coming here if you're in the area.

This place has certainly been around a while and has an amazing history to check out while you are waiting. I had the brisket and homemade potato salad made by Helga - so delicious!

An accidental find, heading through Yosemite National park, I took the most scenic drive from SF and after dealing hours of journey with beautiful scenery, we found ourselves pulling over to this cafe. We took the most corner seat overviewing the road and ordered a burger. "OMG" the best burger I ever had + view. This cafe won't disappoint you.
