“Good breakfast”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 October 2012

We don't like to cook on our getaways, so off to breakfast. Mile High has a great breakfast special with a good price. The average tasting coffee costs almost as much as the meal. New owners took over a few years back. The lunch and dinner menu has a slight Asian flare to it but they also have great burgers and sandwiches. Try to go when the owner is playing the grand piano...beautiful. But if you're looking for eggs, crispy hash browns, toast and bacon at a great price, Mile High is the place.

“Great Prime Rib”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 October 2012

We stopped at the Mile High Cafe for lunch. It has an American and Asian menu, which seems like a strange combination but it works. We had prime rib sandwiches which were so very tasty along with with wonderful sweet potato fries. At the next table they were eating Asian food, sushi, shrimp, etc. The plates looked beautiful and they seemed to be really enjoying there meal.
Service was excellent and the price was reasonable and right on for what we purchased.

“Different”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 August 2012

Lovely interior. Went for lunch yesterday, the food was very good but the prices have been raised, $9.50 for a hamburger and fries. The owner is a sushi chef and her bento box and sushi are great.

“Best Breakfast and Lunch in Idyllwild”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 August 2012

Have lived in Idyllwild for over 20 years and The Mile High Cafe has the best breakfast and lunch on "the hill". Still haven't made it in for dinner, but will soon. They're open 7 days/week and open longer hours than their website indicates. There are hardly any restaurants in Idyllwild that have consistently good food. In fact, The Mile High Cafe has the best food every time.... we've tried them all.
