What a great surprise find!

What a great new (old) restaurant I tried on this visit to Palm Springs. Rick's blew my mind for lunch. I stayed at my favorite hotel, Palm Springs Rendezvous, and walked over for lunch. My first impression was great when I passed a waitress who was smiling and immediately made me feel... read more

Huge diner kind of restaurant with huge breakfast menu, many healthful as well as decadent breakfasts, served by smiling folks who care! Never a dry coffee cup! Great egg white omelette specials. Very good whole grain pancakes. Oh, and a cinnamon roll that is out of this world. Great place. ZB

Traditional diner with some Cuban dishes available. All portions are are generous, the bowls of soup are bottomless, and they have four different selections. Very good comfort food, everything is freshly prepared, you'll enjoy this old style diner.

Seems like a very busy family restaurant. Cashier friendly. Food O.K. but pricing a little high and servings seemed a little "off." For example, we got three pieces of very crispy bacon for our bacon and egg breakfast. English muffin was an additional fifty-cents to "upgrade" from toast. Little added fees throughout our simple breakfast was a little odd. Pricing... More

The food was good but service was rushed. The waiter seemed like he was in a big hurry and would cut us off mid sentence. He forgot our order of bacon and it didn't come until we were done with our meal and it was still charged. Should if been comped in my opinion. Had good coffee. The acoustics in... More
