Great breakfast spot!

Friendly but busy place. I love their breakfasts! Fast and efficient service. There are now at least 2 spots: one on highway 111, and another hidden off of Washington.

Our fast and flavorful breakfast fave. Though the lines can get long on weekends, it's only because they do such a good job for breakfast. Nothing high-brow here, just wonderful eggs and hash browns, bacon, biscuits, pancakes, etc. Big coffee mugs that rarely get low. It's a classic Palm Springs place transplanted in La Quinta with great old photos of... More

The waitress was very friendly and the breakfast was delicious! Good down home cooking. Usually there is a line out the door so glad we went early.

The food and the service was very good. One of the reasons we chose this restaurant was because on their website they boasted of the complimentary Mimosas which we found out when the check arrived were not complimentary.

Great little diner with great service. The food is pretty good especially for the price! Loved the waffles with fruit.

I drove by it several times without seeing it. It's in a business complex hidden behind some big bldg. and very difficult to find. BUT, once inside you'll be rewarded for your patience. Good food, service and atmosphere.

Just good old fashioned coffee shop food! They make you feel welcome. My 9 yaer old son's favorite is the french toast... he compares to every restaurant when we go out to breakfast!

Disappointung for a crowded eatery. Ordered an avocado omelet that arrived with one tiny sliver of avocado on top. The omelet itself was bland. Our party of four walked out unsatisfied. We felt it was pricey, service ok, puzzled about why it was so crowded?

I have only had lunch at Louise's Pantry since it moved to La Quinta and I have always had a good meal. The atmosphere is that of a local diner but the food is good. I remember Louise's when it was in Palm Springs next to the Follies Theater. I used to stand in line and eat dinner whenever I... More

Went on a Sunday morning while visiting from out of town. 1st mimosa was free! Hubby had homemade corned beef hash and eggs. I had the fruit waffle. Both were EXCELLENT. Pics and memorabilia on walls tell the great history of Louise's Pantry and I'm so glad we stumbled upon it. We love home-grown eateries with good food & service... More
