Rick and his staff are friendly and even if there is a wait, it is always pretty quick. We usually start with a fresh fruit medley then order breakfast. Good crispy bacon and lots of egg dishes to choose from as well as pancakes, waffles , french toast. If you wantr a sugar rush, order thei homemade cinamon rolls.

This place is jumping. The food is fantastic and the waitresses are the absolute best ever. Speedy service, very attentive and a very welcome feeling when you arrive and depart. The only downside is they are only open to 12 noon!

I went here two times for breakfast. The eggs and hashbrowns were good. The fruit medley was expensive ~9 dollars, but it was very large (could feed three people) and had a range of fruits, from strawberries to papaya, in it. I would suggest a seat a way from the door, because the AC unit blows down on that table... More

I have been going to this restaurant for years and have never had a mediocre meal there. They have all been over the top. The staff of Janice, Renato and Adrian continue to run circles around any wait staff anywhere. The food is excellent as well. I will not eat breakfast at any other place when I am in Palm... More

Our group tried both breakfast and lunch and everything was very good. You have to try the huge sweet roll. And the desserts are pretty darn good too. Good service too!

As they only serve breakfast and lunch, you'll definitely want to give this place a try. The huevos rancheros were excellent and the pancakes thick and fluffy. Sausage that was actually cooked and bacon deliciously crisp. Staff very nice. The piped in music was geared toward their demographic.

Had breakfast here after arriving from the East Coast, so my body clock was ahead of local time. Rick's was open early, thank goodness. The breakfast was standard diner style, nothing special, and waitstaff was very prompt. Not a destination, but fine for my needs.

I've had two terrific lunches at Rick's in the last two years. One was fish tacos with delicious black beans. The other was chicken tamales with black beans, yucca, and two wonderful salsas. Classic Palm Springs feel. Good service. Excellent food. I'll be back!
