When it's hot in the Central Valley, this is the place to be! The restaurant is located in the town of Big Creek, about halfway between Shaver Lake and Huntington Lake on the old Huntington Lake Road. There are a variety of fun activities to do in the area, including hiking up the falls and relaxing in the many little pools along the way. The staff will even pack up a lunch for you to carry along.

If you are out early in the morning, come in for a cup of hot something, along with a delicious pastry of your choice. You can have more than one! It is relaxing to sit out on the front patio area and watch the coming and going of the street traffic.
