recently dined here 2 days for breakfast. Found this hidden gem while looking for a place for breakfast. Go before 11AM for breakfast because after 11 they switch to lunch menu which I suspect is just as good. Very intimate dining outside under shaded conditions and the menu was great. Coffee tasted excellent and we enjoyed it so much we... More

Came with a friend who has been coming for years. Beautiful patio tucked away from the street. We both had salads. I had the oriental salad. Good portions with fresh ingredients and a choice of homemade dressings, which you can purchase. Great service. Loved the photos and sayings in the washroom. Would definitely go back

I had the gazpacho soup and half sandwich. Both were excellent! My daughter liked her bbq pork sandwich. Hostess was very nice. Patio was busy and nice but too many flies so we ate in the empty dining room which was cool and comfy.

A wonderful patio. The staff were extremely friendly. It almost felt like we were at someones home for breakfast. Thee food was first class, fresh, and tasty. Coffee was some of the best that we had in Palm Desert.

The place has a bistro-like feel to it, with colorful local artwork on the walls and an attractive patio off the back. Prices are typical for this area, in the $8 to $12 range. We both had a croissant filled with generous shredded cheese and scrambled eggs, accompanied by very good sausage links and fresh fruit. The friendly waitress (possibly... More

We were delighted with the breakfast entrees in the quaint patio setting. Apple strudel crepes and fresh fruit were a change from the norm and tasty. My husband ordered scrambled eggs which were served with a huge blueberry muffin and tossed fried potatoes. It was more than enough to eat. The service was excellent and the waitress friendly. We'll return... More

The location is good, outside is nice. People were friendly, but very disappointed in the food. My friends said they would not eat there again. Even the coffee was very weak. All breakfasts were just so so, and the place is not cheap.

Tucked away a bit from glitzy, trendy El Paseo Dr., it would be easy to walk past this delightful restaurant, but it would be at your loss. I've never eaten inside the restaurant, because the outside patio is so charming! Umbrellas and a large water fountain provide cool shade and soothing sounds that accompany a varied and pleasing menu on... More

I liked the courtyard and the service was good. Hard to tell if the food was good as it was pretty basic and and maybe a bit "canned". Had scrambled eggs, bacon , fruit, and toast. Eggs were srambled,...good.... Bacon was the thickness of a dollar bill and out of a pre cooked package i think.,not good. Fruit was fresh... More
