Ranch House Cafe in Olancha, Route 395 - Great Breakfasts

EarlyBird | Apr 7, 2014 02:37 PM

In the past few years I've visited Death Valley and other destinations off Route 395 a number of times, and have found that with the exception of some well known places in Bishop, this corridor is considered pretty much a wasteland for decent food.

Well, this past Sunday I happily stumbled upon Ranch House Cafe in Olancha, just 1/4 mile north of the 190 on Route 395. My sister, wife and I had a fantastic breakfast there. The corned beef hash and eggs were excellent, the fried breakfast potatoes exceptionally crisp, flavorful and tender, the biscuit and gravy rocked (could have used a bit more seasoning), and the pancakes were huge and delicious.

Service was excellent and the price was fair. It's a small, Western themed little restaurant on the east side of the highway. If you're heading north you'll see the Jerkey shack on the right side, and not a 1/2 mile up the road, to your left, will be Ranch House Cafe.

It will be my new stop for meals on Routhe 395. I'm looking forward to trying their lunches.
