Okay. Tourists delight. Locals delight. Bread the old-fashioned way. Delicious. Fresh. Different. Many styles and types of bread made daily with the original Sheepherder Bread being the favorite. The racks of bread beckon you with names like Chileno Cheeze, Mule Bread, and Honi Squaw Raisin Nut. There are over 24 different loaves of bread as well as rolls, pastries, cookies, candy, pound cakes, and Cinnamon loaves.
Not only a bakery but a stand-up-place-your-order restaurant and candy, gelato, and snack center. There seems to always be a line in the candy area. The abundance of selections is overwhelming. Weekdays are not as crowded as the weekends.
Favorite Dish: Going to the back of the bakery side and you find a wall menu to choose a sandwich of choice. Some are award winners and others are just plain good. Lunch time is the best time to enjoy one of the sandwiches and not only are they good but with good portions of fillings, as well. Find a seat first, because the lunch crowd gets long. I guess a lot of people agree wih me that ERICK SCHAT'S BAKKERY is a great place for lunch. Don't take my word on it. Just check out their Facebook page for others reviews. A must stop. Half the fun of a road trip is finding something unique in dining. This is one of those places.
Trying to eat healthy while on a trip can be challenging, but we did our best by looking for salads. Unlike Jack in the Box, service was efficient and friendly...plus the food was delicious.
Favorite Dish: We had the Charbroiled Chicken Salad-To-Go (charbroiled chicken, lettuce, tomato, cucumber, cheese, croutons, black beans and spicy southwestern ranch dressing).
This is a local bakery, situated on the main road of Bishop. It has a title of "Home of the Original Sheepherder Bread since 1907".
The place is fantastic for lunch, as the sandwiches have to be seen to be believed.
Also the cakes looked incredible and the fruit pullaways tempting. It was only the fact that we were heading for the heat of Death Valley that stopped us buying more goodies.
Favorite Dish: I had the Mule Kick Sandwich which consisted of Premium Roast Beef, Natural Swiss Cheese, Lettuce, Red Onions, Alfalfa Sprouts, Tomatoes, Jalapenos, and Spicy Mustard on Mule Bread.
"Home of the Original Sheepherder Bread," since 1907 they have been baking fresh the original Sheepherder, breads, rolls and pastries. As you walk up they have many wonderful table to enjoy the outdoors. As you walk inside it was kind of overwhelming because they have some many things hanging all over the place. Inside there is another dinning area, but rather crowed because there are so many racks of baked goods. There is a sandwich bar, cappuccino drinks, Delftware and many imported gifts for enthusiastic tourists from all over the world.
Our doors are always open (except Christmas Day) seven days a week.
The Pizza Factory is a great place to stop while driving through Bishop. You can expect quick service and have your dish ready in 10-15 minutes. Prices are reasonable. Pizza's usually take a little longer.
There is an arcade inside if you got brats that want to play some games.
Favorite Dish: Meat Ravioli. The tomato sauce is excellent. They come with too much cheese on top which I usually scrape off. The dish also comes with a big chunk of delicious garlic bread. It's not authentic / or fancy but the combination works well and tastes good.
I first tried Raymonds Deli this past trip on my way back from Mammoth Lakes. The food was great. The prices were reasonable and the place had a great feel about it. We ordered five sandwiches to go and everyone enjoyed their meal. A little "in your face" attitude, where signs on the table read "bus your own table, we ain't your mommy". Rock and roll on the juke box, entertaining signage and pictures "If I had to live my life over, I would live over a deli".
Favorite Dish: The gut buster was most excellent.
I was really surprised what a decent restaurant this was! Regular dining area and sushi bar was available. I couldn't believe the sushi could be so fresh since Bishop is located out in the "boonies" and it's hard to imagine they can get fresh fish daily. So, we stuck with the cooked cuisine offerings. Started with miso soup, a smidgen of picked cabbage (Kazunoko) and some friend pork dumplings called Gyoza which was served with a dipping sauce. I had the Tempura dinner that included 6 pieces of shrimp and various vegetables (green beans, eggplant, sweet potato, carrot, brocholi, mushroom and zucchini). My boyfriend had the beef and chicken teriyaki dinner. Both plates also had a green salad.
Good breakfast spot. The decor was great, exactly what you would expect in Bishop! From the mounted fish to old license plates and antiques. The waitress was also no surprise. A grandma type women with a beehive hairdo hardly able to move around and instead of calling everyone honey, she calls you kiddo.
I had the two eggs over easy, sausage links and waffles. Nothing special but I enjoyed it! My boyfriend had the Denver omlet. He thought the onions and peppers could have been cooked more.
This was a good restaurant (for Bishop). Back at home, it would not compare to some of the outstanding cuisine we have available to us. The meat was prepared exactly as ordered. The wine list, surprisingly enough was very reasonable. We had a very nice bottle of Stag's Leap Petite Syrah!
Favorite Dish: I had the Filet Mignon and my boyfriend ordered the New York Strip. Both were good.
It was advertised in the yellow pages as being the best in town, and advertisements never lie. I have no basis for comparison on that. As you may have guessed, Bishop is not exactly a haven for world reknown cuisine. Most places are casual and functional, much like the town itself. I arrived late, having flown and driven all day and wanted something filling, cheap and delivered to my hotel room. Nick n Willies delivered. They serve pretty decent pizza and garlic bread, great for carb loading grub for the night before a big hike.
