Went for breakfast as we went out of town for the day. Food was basic, overpriced and just seemed like it attracted those that wanted to try and look the part sipping bucks fizz on special deal.... well i've never seen fizz with a screw top lid, more like fizzy water. What topped it was the bill being delivered before... More

We wanted an early lunch while we were in DT Palm Springs and happened to be down the street from Pinocchio's. I had been there for breakfast a while back and it was good, so I hoped lunch would be as good as well. Unfortunately, the lunch as 'hit and miss'. We ordered a mushroom/blue cheese burger (medium rare) with... More

It was packed but everyone was friendly and enjoying the experience. Two of the servers broke into a "spontaneous" salsa to some great music and danced out onto the sidewalk. Everyone... More

We have traveled to Palm Springs several times and visited this great cafe on our last visit. It was recommended by fellow travelers at our hotel, who advised that the biscuits and gravy were a must, and they were absolutely correct! Best we've ever had. We ate on the patio with the help of the misters. Didn't go inside, but... More
