I lived in Yosemite for three months in 2011, and used to frequently visit the Mountain Sage for coffee, snacks, and wi-fi/cell signal. I loved it there. It's not the type of cafe that serves up elaborate breakfasts, no. But I used to get an iced coffee and a breakfast sandwich, or a bagel, or scone, and just relax in their sitting room to make contact with the outside world for a while. They also have a room full of local art, photography, and goods. Oh, and a collection of books for you to enjoy while you're there. That's how I learned all the ways people have died in Yosemite! Fun stuff.
Outside, there are tons of plants and a few places to sit. They'd have the farmer's market every Saturday which was really awesome, and a couple of times a summer they'd even host a big festival or concert. AND we were able to bring our compost, since they appreciated having something to offset the acidity from their coffee grounds.
I wish there were more places like this. I honestly haven't found anything that comes close since leaving California.
