We stopped here after going to Mono Lake...the food was great! My husband and daughter had sandwiches, I had the spinach strawberry salad. Ate outside on the beautifully landscaped lawn - if you are a plant lover, you will be amazed...with a view of the lake!!!! The staff were very friendly and even gave us an edge piece of the latest batch of brownies. Delicious! If in the area, a must stop.

We ate one dinner and one breakfast here on a recent trip to Mono Lake/Lee Vining. The staff is friendly and cheerful, there are plenty of vegetarian options, and the opportunity to sit at picnic tables outside in sun or shade, listening to the birds, is really pleasant. The food itself is fine to good (the porridge-eater in the family says the oatmeal is excellent) and the portions are generous, but it's really the atmosphere that sells the place. Oh, and the bakery items are very tasty. Recommended.

First time visitor. Recommendation from the Lake View Lodge during check in. Walking distance from Lodge. Variety of seating available inside and outside, Cafe is licensed to serve alcohol. Varied menu and specials to choose from. All items priced accordingly. Home cooking with local ingredients. Place your order at the counter and within minutes food is served.
Lamb special was excellent. Includes choice of soup or salad. Huge portions. Desserts looked amazing, especially the apple pie! Will try the pie on my next visit to Lee Vining.
Highly recommend, won't be disappointed

Staying one night in Lee Vining and very uncertain where to eat Epic was one of the places suggested to us by receptionist at El Mono. We really enjoyed it, food was good, staff great. Ate our first course inside the cafe as all tables were taken outside then moved outside for desert and another glass of wine. Amazing blueberry pie and also creme brûlée (there were two of us!) Extremely pleasant evening.

Made to order food in a casual atmosphere. It was crowded the night we went, but the service was good and the food quickly came out. They have wine and beer and lots of good bakery items for dessert.
