The Lucky Buck Cafe is nestled in the quaint town of Groveland, California, which rests on the western side of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. This historic Gold Rush town still holds the look of a bygone era and is the closest town visitors can enjoy before entering the crown jewel, Yosemite National Park. The summer season in Groveland, California, is alive with events, open markets, and tourism, the lifeblood of the town. When traveling from the Bay Area, Highway 120 is the most convenient path to travel.
Our family-owned cafe is the first stop for travelers looking to satiate their hunger and thirst before and after visiting Yosemite.
Visitors to our seasonal cafe enjoy our 100% smoke-free property, and our impressive menu. We are proud to offer genuine hospitality and a dining experience that brings people together. We have no WiFi, which allows our guests to reconnect with each other, share smiles, and fascinating stories of their travels. Our Groveland, California cafe only requires reservations if there is a larger party of ten or more people. We have a private room that is ideal for private parties, events, or any special occasion. The wide-ranging menu at Lucky Buck Cafe offers a variety of vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free items. For visitors that want to quench their thirst, we offer a variety of soft drinks, ice tea, hot chocolate, and milkshakes. For added variety, we provide ice-cold beer and a wine menu.
