The Pony Espresso Coffee Company. Let the screen door bang behind you and settle down for a cup of coffee or a Loca-Mocha. Or head outside and sip your drink on the pleasant umbrella-shaded deck. $. 157 Main St. at U.S. 395; 760/932-7798.

Whoa Nellie Deli. Fill up with premium―at a Mobil station that whips up lobster taquitos and filet mignon. Dine inside, or outside on the lawn with its sweeping view of Mono Lake. $$. State 120 at U.S. 395; 760/ 647-1088.

Walker Burger. Between Bridgeport and Lake Tahoe, this roadside burger stand is enlivened by the collection of handmade birdhouses in the picnic area. Great big burgers and thick shakes too. $. 107008 U.S. 395, 35 miles north of Bridgeport; 530/495- 2219. ―Harriot Manley
