If you like homemade soup, you will love this place. Everything we have tried has been good. Do not be put off by the shabby exterior, inside is clean and good.

The cafe is located on a country road right outside of town. As others have commented, the location is used a lot by Hollywood so the outside looks a bit beat up which is part of it's charm. The inside is really cutely decorated with lots of placards with funny sayings. It was well kept up and clean. We had... More

We went on a Sunday morning, and the place was virtually empty at 9:30am. Tostada omelette was very tasty, and the chicken fried steak and eggs were as well. Service was very attentive, (remember...

The food is average - but there is a lot to chose from. The service i friendly and very very nice. And the authenticity of the place is over the roof. If you want the true cowboy feeling, this is the place to go. No wonder a lot of movies and commercials shoot here. We were won over by the... More

More of a place that has been in countless movies and commercials. The food is standard diner. I had the Patty Melt, which was OK.

A real landmark Sierra Highway restaurant. Great breakfasts. The Café has been used in numerous commercials and several movies over the years. Plan to wait for a table on Saturday or Sunday mornings.

We have heard for years about the great breakfast at the Halfway House Cafe. After a morning hike we stopped by and had a great breakfast. The waitress was very accommodating and served us well and fast. So glad we finally found Halfway House Cafe.
