New Drinks, Eats: Yosemite Falls Cafe


Yosemite Falls Cafe is set to open its fourth location. After some private parties this weekend, it’ll launch Monday.

The cafe is part of the revival of Granite Park. Here are some notes from my column today:

… they’ve taken over the old Public House restaurant and renovated it into two areas: a traditional Yosemite Falls in the back and a sports bar in the front. The sports bar has booths and lots of televisions — including an 80-incher, co-owner Manny Perales says.
Overall, the new space has about 190 seats inside and 100 on the patio. Compared to some of the other Yosemite Falls Cafes, this one is a little smaller.
…Expect the same menu as the other restaurants, with some new dishes. Highlights are oysters on the half shell, oysters Rockefeller and filet mignon tacos, Perales says.
Sandwiches and burgers are about $7, while dinner entrees are about $10-$16, he adds.
Hours are 6 a.m.-11 p.m. Mondays-Thursdays and 6 a.m.-midnight Fridays and Saturdays. For more information, call (559) 222-7800.

Here’s what I love: Connie and Manny are experienced restaurateurs, with enough smarts and capital to keep this place open.

There’s no worry about incompetance (ala Milt Barbis) or financial shenanigans (Kirkorian), plus we already know the food is great, they can do catering, and they understand keeping the sports-bar atmosphere strong in that sorta inner-city centralized location.

This is no fly-by-night deal, and I can’t wait to become a semi-regular patron there.

(meanwhile, only the shadow knows what the heck is going on with the former Cabo-Wabo/Edge space, where I see trucks and people rummaging around and hear rumors but have no clue what Kirkorian is up to…)

I heard about this new place for Yosemite Falls Cafe in Granite Park and gave them a try. I am now a regular customer and enjoy each and every meal I have there. The staff and food are the absolute best. Give them a try. You won’t be disappointed.
