After a disastrous experience at the Hotel Jeffrey restaurant, we wandered up the street to Coulter Cafe. This little cafe is inside the general store and is very quaint. The service was friendly, and the food was very good. A great little stop in Coulterville.

re-opened 08/2009 - Priest Station has been owned and managed by same family for 6 generations
My husband and I found this excellent little Cafe whilst looking for somewhere to eat during our stay at Pine Mountain Lake. Needless to say we ate here every night during our stay. Perched high on a corner with amazing views, the food was delicious. The service was great and the beers icy cold. The bugs can be annoying, but the food is so good, you don't even notice. I highly recommend the black bean burger.

We were staying at the close-by Groveland Hotel. This is a sister property.
We were pointed to a table for two near the kitchen, but the draft from the AC made it very uncomfortable. With no server in sight, we moved ourselves to an adjacent empty table, taking our place settings with is and exchanging them for untouched place settings from our new location. The man who had seated us, without speaking to US, made a a great show of removing and replacing the place settings we had just moved to the table for two. Shortly thereafter, another couple entered and were shown to the same table my the same man who loudly explained that they could sit at the drafty table for two or a communal table closer to the bar as the dining room would soon get busy (it never did). We'd been told!
Out server was charming. We offered to move to the communal table, but she waved the idea away.
The wine and beer selection was really good. The menu ws creative. I DID find the spicy cauliflower dish extremely peppery (I had been warned), with little flavor, but it was al dente and with some different approach to adding chili (not lashings of paprika) could have been really interesting.
As we watched the team of servers through the evening, we had to conclude that the man who seated us just hated his job...shame

We've visited this little place a couple of times. The Hamburgers are prepared on the grill outside to your liking and they are HUGE!!! No use trying to pick it up just tip it on its side and dig in. Great fries and onion rings. But they have a wide menu from pasta to prime rib. Lots of beer and wine to choose from. Free pool table. Family friendly place to go when you're taking a drive to the hills. Lots of nice locals too. The owner treats you like you're a relative come to visit.

Coffee was good. The breakfast burrito was lacking the everything I would expect when the lady asks if I want everything on it. If the cook say everything and a egg and raw onion with tomato is what I get either I'm in a health food place or there wasn't much everything in the kitchen. The eggs were cooked well. If you eat enough you can find a piece of bacon.

We stopped totally randomly in Coulterville on our way back from Yosemite National Park. This Gold Rush town on highway 49 is a hidden nugget, with old hotels, shops, an old mine locomotive and... the Magnolia Saloon!
We just had a drink there and it was like going back to the 1850s. The bartender was very friendly and we walked around the saloon looking at all the old black and white pictures and the artifacts in the displays.
The best was to sit at the old bar counter and feel like we were in a John Ford western.
A stop one must take on highway 49, north of Mariposa.

a very friendly organic cafe serving the best espressos in California, outdoor seating in the garden amongst the nursery plants
A lot of people that work in Yosemite during the summer pop over to Groveland for their concert series each summer. I drove in the weekend that The Brothers Comatose performed and was not disappointed. I ordered the Red Bean Tea from the cafe, iced (I believe that's what it was called) and I'm still dreaming about how delicious it was. 3 of us ordered that and another girl ordered a Chai and we all were in heaven. The place is adorable and even has this weird interactive topographic map in the back with sand that you can reshape. In other words, the place is adorable, family friendly, and worth the stop. I also recommend going to the concerts! The ticket prices are low, the music is good and the venue is perfect (small and intimate).

Located in the very tiny (pop 115) historic gold rush town of Coulterville, this small enterprise produces some amazing goodies! The owner/baker uses wholesome, focally sourced ingredients...NOT MIXES!!!... and whips up breads and sweets that tasted like "the good old days" when mom's (or at least grand-mom's or great grand-moms) actually baked. This is not your usual bakery, it is an experience, one that locals enjoy and tourists will treasure. Only issue is that she is not open enough!!! Generally there on weekends unless she is doing a custom wedding or other large event, but while officially open Thurs & Fri as well you "takes your chances". If in town, it does not matter as the town is only a block long, but if tmaking it a destination, best to call ahead!

Cheap & cheerful pizza restaurant much frequented by locals. Quite crowded but lots of tables, so no waiting for a table even on a Sat evening.
Friendly guy Jesse dealt with us and was keen to give me a couple of samples of beer. As always portion size was huge

Tiny restaurant in a unique, historic and tiny town! While menu varies from day-to-day, most everything I've tried has been very good. Coffee is excellent!
