Sort of a traditional breakfast place with large plastic-covered menus and waitresses who definitely know their business. Huge portions and hard to finish.

This restaurant does a great job for breakfast (our only experience) - my husband ordered the corned beef hash - definitely enough for two people. I got an omelet that would have fed two people as well. The potatoes with peppers and onion were very good. My husband said his biscuit, which looked impressive, actually looked better than it tasted;... More

Restaurant only average. My husband had the biscuits and gravy with eggs and hash browns. They must use MSG as he got MSG symptoms just after. I had pancakes that were just okay.

And the cooking is first rate, Excellent bacon, great chili, terrific omelets, and more. There will be lines to get in so mid-morning is the best strategy.

Ate here 3 times this week for breakfast and lunch. Perfectly cooked eggs (sunny side up better than scrambled), waffles, sandwiches (BLT was superb). Service with a smile each time and very quick. Would eat here often if I lived here!

The atmosphere was comfortable, the service friendly and the food arrived very quickly, even though the place was full. Bottomless cup of coffee was strong and full-bodied. I had double (2) stack of buckwheat pancakes. They were huge - at least 9inches in diameter. Enough for one 20 year old or two people over 45. They were not that tasty,... More

First of all I will tell everyone they do not have pecan sticky rolls that I seen in previous reviews. Be prepared for a wait sometimes a long wait . The tables are I am not kidding right on top of each other. The gentleman next to me was coughing and sneezing on my food. The service is lacking because... More

I always come to Louise's Pantry when I'm here in the valley and I have a great experience every time. Love the huge portions and fresh ingredients. Whatever they quote you to wait when they are really busy they always get you in well before what they quote. 2 thumbs up!

Great food, huge portions. They do breakfast and lunch only, and they do it well. We had eaten in the one in Palm Desert many years ago, and were delighted to find one in LaQuinta. Had breakfast and lunch both. Great both times. Warning: if you go on a Sunday morning, be prepared to wait........a long time. But they serve... More
