Bishop / Mammoth Lakes -- Breakfast and Lunch?

I will be heading to Bishop and Mammoth from L.A. this Saturday and need a place for lunch/dinner (burger,sandwich, or?) along the way. I think I will make a stop at The Pines in Palmdale/Lancaster for breakfast on the way up and that meal should last most of the Bishop. So maybe someplace in Bishop for a late lunch/dinner would be good. Then I need a big country style breakfast on Sun that will last all the way back to LA. My Thanks, JeetJet? . .

  1. Interestingly, there's another thread already happening on Mammoth. Check this out:

    I've replied already for Mammoth but as for Bishop, that's usually a pass-through town for us so unfortunately I don't have any specific recommendations.

    1. In Bishop, there is a branch of Whiskey Creek. Schaats Bakery has good comfort food for lunch, and the bread is very good--my favorite is Sheepherders Bread. There is a good Chinese restaurant located upstairs in the little shopping center behind the Subway and there is also a new Indian restaurant hiding back in that center. Beyond that, the food goes downhill quickly in the town...

        The Indian place is very good. (Don't recall the name off the top of my head but I reviewed it a couple months ago.)

        1. re: tavmark

          I believe the place is India Palace, and by all means GET THEE TO SCHAATS!

          Just seeing the name Schaat's Bakery brings a tear to my eye. Amazing.

            Erick Schat’s is wildly overrated, yet continues to retain it's almost cult-like status. I think the baked goods are below average at best, but the out-the-door lines never seem to cease. Go figure.

              I don't know, maybe it's because I only pull through there about once every three years, but I love it. Those apple fritters, the eclairs... can't get enough. Just remembered Jack's Waffle Shop too... mmmm... pecan waffle.

        3. We like a Mexican place in Bishop called Amigos.
          The wait can be long during peak hours.
          The Good Life Cafe in Mammoth for breakfast.
