Run really well

Food was very good, reasonably priced. They are busy, but handle it well, with competent staff. That was the hardest working busboy I have seen in years!

Love love this place for breakfast. It is so busy, you should go early, before 8:30 or be prepared to wait. Great service, excellent food. A must eat pancakes! I am alway a sucker for gravy & biscuits...theirs is great. Huge portions and moderate prices. It takes 2 hands for their sweet rolls!

I know we should have tried other places, but why? Food was terrific, service was great. I tried eggs scrambled, an omelet and French toast. All fabulous with generous portions. The home fries were salty and flavorful with peppers and onions, crisp and plentiful. Coffee was hot and my cup was never empty. Staff was friendly.

We had lunch after playing tennis in the heat. The sandwiches were delicious. Great flavor. The service was attentive. One small mishap. My hubby ordered the tuna steak sandwich and got the tuna salad sandwich. I ate the sandwich the following day.

This is the diner referred via free breakfast voucher from The Monroe located right across the street. First thing we noticed was how popular this place was; a lot of people (many looked like locals) who appeared to enjoy being there. My wife and I not only had the freebies, we ordered other breakfast amenities...and were more than delighted with... More

Great food; quick Service and friendly staff. Even though the place was packed, they run like a well oiled machine. Got us in and coffee served in record time. Food was great too. Ordered the kids silver dollar pancakes and it was enough food to serve 2 adults!

We've been going to Rick's for years - whenever we are in the Coachella Valley. Even when we stay in Rancho Mirage, we take the time to drive to Palm Springs to have breakfast at Rick's. We've had lunch there a few times (and it was excellent) but it is the breakfast that draws us back! Their fresh fruit (a... More

This was our go to for breakfast. Close to our hotel, good food, quick services. We stuck mainly to the bacon eggs and toast option. Although the bacon was excellent and I tried the fruit salad one day which was perfect. All fresh fruits, beautifully ripe and fresh. I'd go back in a minute.

Best food ever, a lot of atmosphere, super sized cinnamon buns, great breakfasts, open early. Rick really knows the restaurant business. His staff are unbelievable. Closes at 3 pm when he moves down the street to his Desert Grill

This is the diner you remember from the "old days." The waitresses take your order from memory, your coffee cup is always full and the breakfast potatoes are to die for!
