This is my standard place for breakfast in PS. I love the huge menu with omelettes, sandwiches, dinners and desserts galore. Bagels are great, and sandwiches are piled high with meat, just like in NYC. My omelette was cooked perfectly, my hash browns were crispy (thank you) and my friend's bacon was crispy, too. Coffee is light-roast (high-acid), I wish... More

A real Deli style restaurant in Palm Springs. Much of the Jewish style foods are prepared well. The portions are more than enough to share. Fresh bakeries made there almost too big for one person. Great Corned Beef on Rye, Potato salad has a good texture and flavor. Matzo and eggs and the Lox appetizer is enough for two as... More

They have great omelets and pancakes. Large portions and reasonably priced. If you are there for lunch and like tuna melts, you will judge all other tuna melts by Manhattan's. It is crispy on the outside and gooey on the inside and huge.

Friends of ours love this place and we all went for the early bird special. Choice of 8 or so items that come with soup or salad, main dish and one drink (non-alcoholic). My husband ordered fish and chips, I had the fettucine alfredo with roasted chicken (which was some of the best alfredo sauce I've had in a long... More

Went there with friends for an early dinner. We all ordered a bowl of soup and half sandwich. While the food was good it took FOREVER for it to arrive. If they had been busy this might have been understandable. We waited at least twenty-five minutes for our food to arrive and then the soup was only lukewarm. Don't think... More

The Reuben sandwich was dry and laborious to eat not much flavor. Waitress very nice friendly and helpful. Coffee cafeteria quality. Deserts look glamorous and gigantic in the case. New York deserts are not necessarily big, and have had some not so good deserts in good restaurants in New York. However the worst one there was far better than what... More

I was told how enjoyable the food was there. The restaurant is very clean and comfortable, the portions generous and very good. When the waitress asked if I wanted pickles, I was blown away when I received a generous portion of four different types. Still making my mouth water just thinking about the experience.

It is hard to write a review about a place I frequent often. But I guess the fact that I visit often speaks for itself. It is the go to place when I want an impressive dessert for a special dinner for guests. It is the go to place for breakfast and sometimes lunch. Dinner I shy away from simply... More

.... disappointing selection and quality after receiving rave reviews from friends. Happy hour food selection is one set menu with out substitutions. Brand libations charged at full fare. Service abundant but confusing. Decor eclectic and not that warm or interesting. Lost interest in having desert so did not sample from their large selection of bakery items in deli case potently...
