What can I say? Little known gem that is a pleasure to go to. The food is ALWAYS excellent and the waitresses are wonderful. What can you say about some place that remembers you after a year or two of not being there? Amazing.

We got a coupon from a hotel for a complimentary breakfast. We thought that this wouldn't be enough. We were very WRONG! They were amazing, great fresh home fries and hash browns. Huge homemade biscuit. Can't wait to come back. Very friendly and attentive staff. The first people there were law enforcement so you know it's good.

Had a wonderful breakfast at this little diner. Looks like a locals place, but everyone was friendly, and the service was fine. Good choices from the menu for breakfast

We ate here three separate times while visiting Joshua Tree. A very old school diner with food that always stopped our expectations anda very nice wait staff. We will return!

Good basic menu: excellent breakfast options at bargain basement prices; soup, burgers and sandwiches for lunch. Haven't been there for dinner. Service is friendly and attentive. Not fancy but comfortable.

Good service, good food....simple dishes. We liked it and would go again the next time we are there. The biscuits were homemade and one day we had it alone and the other two days we had it with gravy. Yum!

Just what you'd expect from a small-town diner. Decent food at a decent price with generally friendly and fun staff.
