Since we opened this camp 25 years ago, we have focused upon fresh foods for our guests. We know it is difficult to find good meals on the road, especially if you are vegan and vegetarian, and invite you to join us.

You will smell the foods before you walk in, but will see entree's like baby back pork ribs, samosas, ribeye steaks, moussaka, vegan ramen and steamed saffron mussels through our open kitchen. We make easy to assemble fresh bag lunches for the trail, and specialty lunch items for indoor and outdoor dining. Beside items like American breakfast and breakfast burritos you will find signature items like our California breakfast too! All this from fresh, mainly regional sourced, sustainable and some organic healthy foodstuffs.

We invite you to peek into some online reviews in advance. Our breakfast and lunch menus rarely change, however our limited dinner menu does change nightly. This restaurant is family style dining. Accessible restroom, parking and ramp to Cafe.

    This is truly a hidden gem. Food was amazing and 100 times better than a few other places closer to the park. Worth the 20-30 min drive.

    Portions are huge! I had the prime rib and it was delicious! I could not even eat half of it. My husband had a cheeseburger and he couldn't finish his either. He also said it was delicious. The lunches and dinners are really good.

    This restaurant should not even be on Open Table. This is NOT a sit-down service restaurant. This is- walk you to the counter, place your order and find a seat until called up to get your food. This was a HUGE disappointment as I was taking my husband out to dinner for his 70th birthday. We turned around and left. I’ve been using Ipen Table for years and this is this first time it’s led me wrong but please- remove this restaurant - it’s nit what anyone making a reservation for a nice dinner is looking for - no reservations are even taken there.

    We ate in the cafe 2 evenings during our stay at Yosemite Bug. Both times the food was outstanding, by far the best we had anywhere during our 2 week holiday! Steak melted in your mouth and the sweet potato samosas were sooooo tasty! Prices were very reasonable too. There are vegan/vegetarian options each day. 10 out of 10!

    We both entered and no instruction how to order or what to do. We went to the till and were greeted by an unfriendly staff member as we ordered two mushroom ravioli, the Vegetarian option. One ravioli had a red item in which looked like meat. When asking the staff what this ingredient was for clarification, it was met with a nonchalant attitude, no one cared, did nothing to reassure me it wasn’t or remedy the situation. They told me it was red pepper as this was in the meal. They took my plate away and removed the item so I could not photograph. Every other ravioli was opened and no other red items to note which is unlikely if the ingredient was actually red pepper. It didn’t cut like pepper, it was more like thin fatty ham as there was streaks of white in it. The staff told me it was red pepper and that it was on the menu on the board, so I double checked and confirmed it wasn’t, this was not listed as an ingredient at all. Multiple staff members shrugged their shoulders and had no consideration for the issue I raised. They told me it was a third party who provided the ravioli, and that it was red pepper. No apology, no effort to remedy the situation or make me feel better about the situation. In addition to that disrespectful situation, there was also burnt garlic bread. Food over salted. The cutlery was dirty. The tables were not cleaned. There were flies everywhere. No straws. Animal heads mounted on the walls of the room. PLEASE don’t eat here even if recommended, food and service was extremely poor and we are a couple who is normally easily pleased and never complain, so it shows the gravity of the situation.

    Unique spot with creative menu. Second week of May was quite busy . We were very happy to find all kinds of Vegan options on the menu. Plenty of sitting outside. Very friendly and accommodating stuff. Portions are a little smaller than expected for the price but very fresh ingredients or hot, right off the grill!

    First of all this reservation is a joke. The place has no clue for OpenTable reservation as it is open table there! You show up, go to the counter and place your order and your meal is brought to your table number. So do not go in finding a table reserved for you. The staff is friendly there and food is good and fresh

    We had dinner here while we stayed at the Yosemite bug. It was a little different then we thought as you walk in get in line and order then go find seating. They had a band playing so there were a lot of people which was fine. Might have been the best steak I’ve ever had. It was excellent.

    Giving a lot of grace, my experience may have just been due to it being off season. I ordered the steak medium well and it came very rare. Ended up hugging porcelain all night. My companion got a flatbread that was nothing but “gum” cheese and barely edible. The ambiance is very low key and rustic which fits the theme. Nice view from one side. Probably cozy on a cold night with a fire going. Portions were very large on everything we saw but if it makes you sick not sure that’s a good thing. If I had to eat there again I’d stick to a sandwich.

    We ordered two flat iron steaks —- one rare, and one medium. Rare was perfectly cooked to rare. Medium was more like medium rare /rare. Pizza was subpar but I guess can’t expect best pizza since it isn’t a pizza joint. Overall l, good quality and portion size and clean.

    Snowed in we were grateful for world class food at this cozy rustic cabin-like resort just outside of Yosemite with a YARTS stop. They serve breakfast/lunch/ dinner at reasonable prices— we had the best duck confit, vegetarian angloletti, wild boar chili and flat iron steak over two days. They have a kids menu, too. They don’t take reservations and there may be a long line even in a snowstorm with spotty internet (best to have enough cash so it will go faster). You may even bring s’mores after dinner in a do it yourself campfire outside. There’s a nice fireplace and plenty of tables to socially distance or to meet tourists from around the world.

    We visited the bug for my sons 22nd birthday on Christmas Day. The menu was full of dishes we all wanted to try. Between the 6 of us every meal we tried was outstanding. Vegetables were fresh and the meat was cooked perfectly. The blend of flavors and vegetables paired with meats or fish are always the perfect combination. Oh and the lobster bisque was amazing.

    Ultimate Christmas experience! Take a snowshoe hike or ski in Yosemite, relax at the spa downstairs from the cafe, then pick from six entrees (there’s something for everyone, vegan and vegetarian, fish, chicken, meat) and five desserts for dinner (oh, and a salad or one of the excellent soups, too!)—we had wild boar and beef brisket, both were soooo good!! My husband polished his plate as usual but I (and most other diners) had plenty of leftovers for lunch next day. It’s always a nice place to come have dinner, but the Christmas menu was really something else, especially with the special desserts like clementine cake. Love this place and the people who run it!!

    Made a reservation for Thanksgiving. Worst table in the place. Right in front of the door. Some one let thier banshee children run and scream. They told us they ran out of pumpkin 🎃 pie. But offered it to the group behind us in line. Pretty pricey for a hostel. Overrated

    The June Bug Cafe on Thanksgiving Day was just perfect! We did not know what to expect when we chose it for our Thanksgiving dinner since it was in Yosemite and looked like a cabin in the woods. But the food was excellent, the turkey moist and tender, mashed potatoes creamy, stuffing not overly flooded with gravy, and the the brownie for dessert with german chocolate frosting was the perfect ending. The price was the best around for the holiday dinner too. Everyone was friendly and well organized. I would love to go back should we be in that area. Do not hesitate to choose this restaurant.

    What a great find! This restaurant really caters to the campers and luckily for us they also serve the public (us.). The restaurant has a limited menu but everything we had was delicious - real home-cooked food near Yosemite at reasonable prices. Suggest going early since they were out of some entrees when we arrived.

    We're locals, but the restaurant largely serves people vacationing in Yosemite and staying at the resort. For that reason, it is very casual but also lively, and the service is on the slow side. The food is exceptional, however. My shrimp and grits were perfectly seasoned and cooked. My husband had a delicious steak. We finished off with a slice of cheesecake that matched NY deli standards. All in all, a lovely dinner and a fun experience.

    The food was amazing. Our vegan daughter was pleased with her cauliflower topped with sate sauce. I loved my seared scallops on angel hair pasta. My husband enjoyed his lamb tagine. The servings were very large---if we had known we would've split an order. Luckily the hostel style kitchen has a big fridge for leftovers. I marked down service only because one should be aware that it is a place where you order and pay, then bus your own dishes. We loved sitting outside under the stars.
