Three of us went there for lunch. I had cinnamon raisin French toast, one had pancakes with sugar free syrup and the third person had a tuna sandwich and fries. The server was very friendly and accommodating. The food came in a very reasonable time. The servings were quite large and well... read more

Looking for a good, old fashioned plate-filling breakfast? Check this place out. Big menu with all the standards and a ton of options. The wait staff has been there forever and treat everyone like a special customer. I have lots of recommendations, but it really is all good.

I've eaten here every few weeks for 13 years, in "Season" here in the Coachella Valley. Had lunch at Don's yesterday - 2/7/16 - and it was as good as it was when I began as a fan of this eatery. Try the omelets- very very good - and for lunch, the wraps are delicious and varied, and the burgers... More

This quaint restaurant is the best there is in local restaurants. My family used it as the go to for weekend breakfast. Even after my son and his family moved, when they visit we make it our go to place.

Our Enterprise driver told us about Dion and Sweet Sues Cafe, Excellent service, menu to please everyone, clean,priced very fair, server was very nice and took time to get my dietary restricted special order perfect. We will be in town for 6 more days and definitely go back maybe twice. We had lunch. They serve breakfast all day..

One of my "go to" places when out of town visitors need a meal. All around good food and their patty melt is a winner!

This is one of my favorite restaurants to go to when I visit my brother in Palm Springs. Breakfast is so good and dinner is too. I love that I can get lunch and dinner food at breakfast since I usually like to eat it instead. The staff are really nice. I would recommend it. Get the meatloaf it is... More

When I moved to Cathedral City and first visited Don & Sweet Sue's Cafe, I was introduced to a winning combination of Good Food, Good Staff and Good Prices. Over the course of 1 and 1/2 years, Don & Sue seems to have lost it's groove. The food is still good, but the wait time for it is longer. The... More
