"There is absolutely no substitute for the best. Good food cannot be made of inferior ingredients masked with high flavor. It is true thrift to use the best ingredients available and to waste nothing." - James Beard

About Us

Picture a relaxing moment with a crepe and a nice glass of wine after a day on the slopes or a refreshing organic martini after a day of hiking and fishing.


Side Door provides Mammoth Lakes and especially “The Village” a deliciously entertaining and comfortable place to relax, meet old friends, make new friends and have a quick meal or leisurely glass of wine.


The quest of the owners, Shields and Kathy Richardson, is to create a cozy atmosphere where customers can experience local culture and enjoy the values and tradition their family was exposed to during travels in Europe. Experience the world with every crepe, cappuccino or glass of fine wine.
