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.

We have only had the fish & chips here (lent) but we've been three Fridays and it has been pretty good. Three nice pieces of cod, a generous serving of fries and cole slaw that may be home made.

We heard about the fish and chips here, and yes, order them! The fish is tender and the coating is crisp and delicious. This cafe also has very good breakfast dishes. Have not tried dinner. Had a chicken salad with super fresh greens and lots of chicken.

One of the best breakfast places in Palm Springs. It is right up there with Elmer's. Service was fast and professional. Food was hot and well prepared. You will not be disappointed
