Erna's Elderberry House

Reviewed By Dcubed - Northern Calfornia

We traveled to Yosemite to attend the Bracebridge Dinner at the Majestic Yosemite Hotel (grr, it is and always will be the Ahwahnee despite the trademark wars!) and wanted to dine outside of the hotel as we would be eating there for the rest of the weekend. So we happened upon Erna's Elderberry House on OpenTable and decide to try it despite the >1 hour drive from Yosemite Valley to Oakhurst that the trip would take. We were more than amply rewarded with a wonderful meal in a cozy beautiful dining room that was decorated for Christmas. The food was fantastic, the service was superb. The staff was smooth and gracious and we were greeted by a printed menu with our name on it and then received a delicious amuse bouche to start off our meal. This was followed by tasty bread and then by a wonderful 3 course meal (we chose the fresh fish as our entree, marvelous!, the restaurant offers a 3, 4 or 5 course tasting menu or selections ala carte). The waiters offered great suggestions as to the wine for my wife and provided me with a house made elderberry based sparkling nonalcoholic drink as I had to drive back to the Valley(sigh). The meal finished with a lovely dessert and great coffee. And as a final touch we were sent on our way with individual almond cranberry pastries to have with our coffee at breakfast the next day. An evening and meal worth every curve negotiated to and from !!!!

Ducey's on the Lake

Reviewed By Matthew G

Had dinner at Ducey's last night. I had the early bird special that they had. It was a 4-6 menu and I had the 4oz filet. It was cooked perfectly and didn't really need the sauce that was on the side but it was all good. The salad was great! Service was good too. Ducey's has a great view of Bass lake and a lovely place for dinner.

Judy's Donuts

Reviewed By Kytting - Frederiksberg, Denmark

Quick breakfast before heading in to Yosemite. Donuts are as they should be - soft and tasty, staff is friendly and patient (three kids) and the customers are smiling and interested in foreigners, even though they must get a lot of them every day, being so close to Yosemite.

You'd think with a name like Cool Bean Cafe, it would be all about the coffee. However, I don't even drink coffee... it's my husband and daughter who telegraph "coffee, coffee, coffee" morning, noon and night. They tell me it's the best. For me, it's the Italian cream sodas... especially the vanilla... it's a must try, and if your indulging, ask for the real cream along with the whipped cream. In addition to the great drinks, it just feels good to support a local mom and pop shop. We don't have enough of them anymore... we're fortunate to have a great one here in Oakhurst... thank you Cool Bean!

Pines Village Bakery

Reviewed By jeanrZ6367RU - North Fork, California

If you like a Chicago style pizza, this is the place for you. A lovely thick crust made from scratch from an artisan bread recipe, topped with house made sauce, grated mozzarella and the toppings of your choice. You can also get white (Alfredo) sauce- great with chicken and garlic- or pesto sauce. The toppings are very traditional, and generously applied. The combo is a masterpiece.

Reimer's Candies, Gifts & Ice Cream

Reviewed By ThomasTCat - St. Louis, MO

We had been wanting ice cream the whole time we were in Yosemite, but couldn't find anything special while we were in the National Park. We happened upon Reimer's while on our way to Sequoia, and what a delightful surprise. We were given samples to choose from, all of them delicious. We each ordered our favorite, and they were exceptional. The person that waited on us was so nice and explained how this business came about. While we were there, the building started filling up with happy customers who evidently came here frequently. It's a fun place to stop for ice cream, homemade candy, or gifts. We were thrilled to find out that there was another location at Three Rivers, close to where we were headed.

Sugar Pine Pizza

Small cafe style Pizzeria. BYOB Did you know that #Sugarpinepizza Is #Dogfriendly ??? We welcome all members of your family including Service Dogs of every kind.

Reviewed By Rogerdob - La Canada, California

We found the pizza to be quite bland and tasteless. What is funny is that this place has a warning posted inside that states “suffering from allegies can make a pizza taste bland and flavorless.” The pizza is tasteless without having an allergy! Another problem was the wait...after arriving to pick the pizza up at the scheduled time, the owner said “just a minute more”....And it turned ot to be over ten minutes more. The place does not serve alcohol but is OK if you bring it in. I really wanted to like this place, it is owned by a very nice couple who were great to talk to.

We came to have breakfast here and sat outside looking at the lake. They also had tables inside the building as well. Waiter was great, very attentive.The pancakes were humongous, a three stack was $7.50 and we could not finish them. Combo special with eggs,...MoreGlad you enjoyed your breakfast and thank you for taking the time to write such a nice review. Come see us again soon.

Casa Velasco Mexican Restaurant

Reviewed By Daria7 - Lake Forest, California

Nestled in the pine tress, near the Pines Resort and Bass Lake, is a surprisingly good Mexican restaurant. The service was very good...the food showed up before we could over indulge on chips and salsa. Plenty of vegetarian options if anyone in your party is a veggie person, while also providing plenty of tasty carniverous fare as well. We will definitely return, and don't forget to walk of your meal with a quick trip to the Pines Resort and the lake.
