Before even heading up to Yosemite National Park, I decided to have at least one meal at the Ahwahnee Hotel's dining room. (Notice that I am refusing to call it The Majestic Hotel due to the trademark lawsuit brought on by Delaware North?)

I found their dinners a little too pricey, but breakfast was doable.
So, I headed to the hotel on Sunday morning and I was greeted by the title theme of Diamonds Are Forever by the pianist in the dining room. I was given a table at a window. I guess they know a V.I.P. and a James Bond fan when they see one!

I kept breakfast simple: bacon, scrambled eggs, hash browns and toast. Along with that, coffee and orange juice.

The servers were very attentive and provided great service. Every visitor to Yosemite should at least have one meal in the Ahwahnee's dining room.
