I have watched this restaurant expand over the years. It is certainly a land mark,must go to in the desert. They have absolutely something to please every palate. From biscuits and gravy to lox eggs and onions. White bread to Bagles. Everything is meticulously prepared. Like grandma hours. Coffee is great and all cold beverages are at least 30. Oz.... More

Good food and great service in a cute country setting. Lots of locals here every time we come who add to the ambience. Good variety in breakfast menu.

On the way home from a few days in Palm Springs today myself and a friend stopped at Don and Sweet Sue's for an early lunch. I ordered a turkey reuben with coleslaw and my friend a steak sandwich. I thought my sandwich was one of the best turkey reubens I ever had. The turkey was moist and delicious set... More

Went for dinner 5/17/14 and was completely disappointed. Their food can be pricy; our bill for 2 was $41.00 less tip. The place was deserted when we arrived at around 6:30 on a Saturday evening, which seemed odd, even off-season. We ordered a $5.50 carrot cake to go and when we got it home it was so tasteless I wondered... More

A genuinel local spot. We were here for breakfast. The minute we walked in we knew we were in the place where locals go and locals are greeted by name. What a pleasant experience! Some folks didn't need to order. The waitress just knew who the customer was and what was desired. Breakfast is good. Breakfast is simple, not fancy.... More

Food is very good with a variety of choices. Portions are a bit oversized, I frequently share salads...they're enough for 2. The servers are very pleasant. Two things to be aware of.....when it's warm there are misters outside, but remember sunglasses and a hat. This is not a huge restaurant and can be crowded during the high season. Remember in...

After driving past this place on Ramon several times, we decided to try it for lunch. It was not busy, maybe four other tables. There had been a high wind the previous evening and sand had been blown everywhere. The table we were given had been washed down, but the plastic chairs were still covered in wet sand and dust....

We ate outside and had a very good breakfast here. I had a chicken liver omelet - hard to find anymore- and it was good. Wife had veggie omelet and loved it. Service was great !

My husband & I decided to dine for a late breakfast after reading the great reviews on Yelp. However, we had no idea that because of the color of our skin we would be seated in the rear of the restaurant with no seating options as other patrons. The hostess just directed us to a tiny table in the rear... More
