McCloud's Own White Mountain Cafe Voted the No. 1 Diner in Northern California

This week, OnlyInYourState.com announced their Top 12 Awesome Diners in Northern California. And, of course, McCloud's own White Mountain Cafe was Number 1! With husband and wife team Scott Remley and Aubrey Hagberg at the helm, there was never any doubt. Scott is the man behind the stove when it comes to recipes, cooking and pleasing the palette's of his customers. Aubrey in the quintessential beauty plus personality that greets her customers with a smile and a "Go ahead and sit anywhere" just-like-at-home attitude.

Formerly the owners of the Mount Shasta Lodge, they opened White Mountain Cafe in 2012 to further feed their customer base of locals as well as visitors to McCloud. They soon found that their heart and spatulas belonged on Main Street. On weekends, the line is out the door with patrons not minding the chill in the air if it means savoring some of Scott's famous Huevos Rancheros, Piled High Cheeseburger or Chicken Fried Steak. Like any good diner, when you find it you frequent it. Many of Scott and Aubrey's customers will drive 15 minutes off of Highway 5 just to have the chance to sit for a tasty and satisfying meal before hitting the road once again.

White Mountain Cafe is located on Main Street, McCloud in the McCloud River Mercantile Building. Their current winter hours are Wednesday through Sunday, 8AM - 2PM.

The McCloud Chamber could not be more proud of Scott and Aubrey and wish them continued success in our wonderful little town of McCloud.

Camping in McCloud

Rene Agredano, Demand Media  - McCloud is a rustic alpine community with a colorful past as a prosperous lumber town. Situated in the shadow of Mount Shasta at 3,200 feet above sea level and surrounded by over 1 million acres of national forest lands, today McCloud is no longer a hub of commercial logging activity; instead, its bustling downtown area serves as a year-round base camp for anglers, hikers, hunters, campers and off-road enthusiasts.
