I am always surprised when I talk to visitors and find out they have not eaten at many of the restaurants, or cafes, in Mammoth. It seems most people who come to Mammoth tend to eat at the same restaurants during their trip, either for convenience or tradition. Although the longtime staples like The Mogul, Roberto’s, Gomez , Burgers and Giovanni’s are always good why not try a different place during your next trip?East Side Bake Shop 2 East Side Bake Shop Whether you desire a quick bite, or a nice sit-down meal there is probably a new choice for you. One of the most recent openings is the East Side Bake Shop at McGee Creek Inn which will make many fisherman and campers very happy. It is open Thursday to Sunday from 6:30 to 3pm and you can select one of the fresh daily specials which might be a warm cup of homemade soup, sandwich or quiche. They also have great coffee and organic baked goods which is a great way to start any hiking or fishing day. If you are in Mammoth and need a quick bite, you can’t go wrong with Stellar Brew. Open early morning to early evening it is a good choice for breakfast, lunch, or a tasty treat. My personal power breakfast is the Basin Bowl with brown rice, shredded carrots, and spinach which is topped with an egg, goat cheese and tahini sauce on the side. They also have a wide variety of unique, healthy options for sandwiches , salads and wraps along with fresh daily pastries, tea and coffee. They have a great, sunny deck which is perfect for people watching.  If you desire a nice sit-down dinner then I strongly suggest eating at Jimmy’s Traverna which is in the same building as The Red Lantern on Old Mammoth Road. Unlike many nice restaurants which tend to be dark, the décor and ambiance in Jimmy’s is stunning, bright and really well done. Jimmy’s has a wood fired oven and offers a wide variety of fish and meat dishes along with various traditional and original appetizers. My favorite is the seasoned, whole fish which is cooked in the wood fired oven. For appetizers the most popular is the grilled octopus, and the 3 choice sampler with pita bread.

For information on the restaurants above please visit: East Side Bake Shop on Facebook, www.StellarBrewNaturalCafe.com, and www.JimmysTraverna.com,

For further choices consider: CJ’s Grill on Old Mammoth, Newly Re-Opened Skadi , Toomey’s at The Village, or the new Underground at The Village.
