We has breakfast, which was excellent. The wait staff was very attentive without being overbearing. It's also very wheelchair accessible.

We drove up from La Quinta for Sunday breakfast / brunch at this great cafe. There was an open fire waiting. The staff were very friendly and the breakfast was perfect. It was simple but done well. We particularly liked the Belgian waffles. A definite must if you are driving through.

The eggs were made as we requested and the fresh squeezed orange juice fantastic. Breakfast here was included with our room stay, and it was a fine addition.

All 4 of us had lunches which came either lukewarm or cold. The teriyaki chicken I ordered had congealed sauce on it which tasted nothing like teriyaki. Also I had ordered teriyaki chicken but got a teriyaki bowl. Decided to keep it becuz we had already waited forever to get our meals. My husband"s breakfast was cold. My friend had... More

The food was good and interesting in a Asian fusion kind of way. Our service was attentive but the place was almost empty when we were there in the middle of the afternoon so I don't know that you can judge by that. The ambiance is lacking however -- very plain Jane. It would be nice if they tried to... More

I thoroughly enjoyed a Japanese lunch with icon soup and sushi. on another occasion I returned with friend and enjoyed buckwheat noodles. both dishes I had never tried but was very pleased. I noticed some beautiful sushi creations brought to... More

We came here after a long hike - the food was very good, service excellent, and art in the place really wonderful. One of the guests even took a turn on the piano which was nice.
