Whoa Nellie Deli near Mono Lake in Lee Vining, California

Beautiful Mono Lake view 

Today we were headed from Mammoth to Yosemite for sight seeing. We went to Camp Curry and some other places but I will tell you about that another day. Along the way we gassed up and we ate breakfast at the Whoa Nellie Deli Tioga Gas Mart & Restaurant. 

Location: Tioga Gas Mart / Whoa Nellie Deli or 760-647-1088
P.O. Box 253 or 22 Vista Point Road
Lee Vining, CA. 93541

We heard they had gourmet style foods in a deli gas mart atmosphere. Yes, it was a unique experience. They do have comfortable booths for indoor and outdoor seating tucked away on the right. 

Greg had a smoked trout bagel with cream cheese, capers and red onion. He found it very tasty. I had over easy eggs, home potatoes & sourdough toast. It was good too. The meals were around $9. each. Chef Matt "Tioga Toomey" shown in the baseball cap below is the culinary delight creator behind the grill. The crew are all very friendly and banter with customers as they grill.

The coffee was less than stellar... probably sitting out too long, but people clearly go here for the gourmet food in an area with little else other than nature. The coffee was Farmers brand and the coffee machines were Brewmaster M-90. The coffee grinder was a Curtis. They offered a variety of herbal tea bag choices as well. I wish I had gotten a tea instead.
