Great food, large portions, even better prices. The quality was very good. The Café is very family friendly. They have a good variety of meals, sides, and appitizers.

since this coffee shop is located right at motel, you can hop right out of pool & eat! Has a good choice of food but is usually to cold to sit inside

I crave the club sandwich. It comes with fries and cole slaw. The turkey tasted like it was freshly roasted, juicy and tasty!

The nachos were made with that liquid fake cheese! Seriously! And I was supposed to get 1/2 off an appetizer for checking in on foursquare which they didn't honor.

Was disappointed in the huevos rancheros as the sauce was not up to par, the fried potatoes were not cooked. I have been eating here for years and have always thought the food was excellent...adding to my disappointment. I will go again, in hopes that it was just a fluke.

Very good food, prices that are easy on the wallet, and the staff couldn't be more friendly. We always eat here when we visit, and haven't been disappointed once.

Greatita sandwich was poor. First bad thing in 10 years. coffee shop. Have always loved it. Tuna Filet sandwich is best EVER! Fajita Sandwich completely misses. They need to fix or replace.

The setting for this restaurant is the Desert Hot Springs Spa & Hotel which is itself old and quite run-down. The restaurant is also in need of extensive cleaning and repairs. The entire place seems to have been ignored by the repairman for many years. The service was slow but they were busy and understaffed. Our waitress was very pleasant.... More
