Cook's Station is a rustic roadhouse diner, located at nearly the 5000 foot level in California's Sierra Nevada mountains, that "comfort food" and is a favorite of locals, and travellers on Highway 88.  Unlike many small, family owned and operated restaurants, Cook's Station features a HUGE menu... 18 pages in total!  

As with all of reviews that I publish, I have no affiliation with the restaurant reviewed, and there is no monetary gain on my part, as I am simply a person who likes to eat, and I love to write-up, and publish my dining experiences.

Cook's Station's menu is in a loose-leaf binder, as it contains a full 18 PAGES of breakfast and lunch goodness, and every item on the menu looks amazing!  

Photo:  The first page of the menu is "Breakfast." and features, as the menu describes, "Eggs, Etc."  Cook's Station is open from 07:00 until 14:00 every day, and this fine restaurant is serious about breakfast, as much of their menu is devoted to a wide array of breakfast choices, including several "monster" selections.

Any N.F.L. linebacker, pro wrestler or lumberjack would find their breakfast appetite satisfied at Cook's Station.

Photo:  Second page... are you interested in chicken fried steak?

Photo:  The third page of the menu features many omelet choices.

Photo:  Scrambles highlight the fourth page of the menu.  Back to Cook's Station main article.

Photo:  More scrambles and breakfast burritos on the fifth page.

Photo:  The sixth page of the menu highlights breakfast sandwiches.  Cook's Station is certainly serious about breakfast!

Photo:  One full page of the breakfast menu highlights corned beef hash!  In all my days of "eating," I have NEVER seen a restaurant that devotes a full page of their menu to corned beef hash.  It's all here at Cook's Station...

Photo:  Sandwiches and specialties continue on the menu.  The "Elvis Special" and the "Fish and Chips" really interest me.

Photo: The eighteenth page of the menu ends the selection with sides, and a few items for the kids.

Quite an impressive menu for a small, "mom and pop" restaurant!  Back to Cook's Station, main article.
