This is a great choice for lunch or a light dinner. Food was fresh and hot. Service was crisp and friendly without constant interruptions. Price was reasonable.

Tastes like your mother made or maybe in some cases better. Good sized servings, which for us means we take some home. We usually cone here in January and always have at least one or meals here. Servers are always friendly and efficient.

The staff were very friendly and helpful, but I have to say the food was not great. I had the waffles with apples and bacon and they were DRIPPING with syrup...almost inedible...and the flavor was not that great. I ate 1/2 but only because I was hungry...But because the staff was so nice I might go back and try something... More

I really don't know if you should review a restaurant when they are spot on or having a bad day and see how they recover. I have really enjoyed their food and ambiance in the past, but today was terrible. That's why they get a "C." It's an inexpensive choice. Inexpensive restaurants in Rancho Mirage are rare.

Was surprised by this restaurant. A lot like Carrows or Dennys. Service was a little lacking, not very attentive. Food was good.

Great atmosphere and service. They have great salads, though oddly they come with a muffin on the side (?). Went with a group of 6, and everyone really enjoyed their food. A solid choice for a good meal.

Cute, not like a sit down restaurant, but cute, quick easy food. Been here several times watched it change over the last few years into a better eating experience.

Well, the server was nice and friendly, actually letting us split the check so we could use the two coupons we had which was great. We were visiting family over the new year weekend so decided to go here for breakfast before our sons hit the road home. They are college age and can really EAT if you know what... More

Always enjoyed the offerings here. Our last dining experience the food was institutional bland and tasteless. Help polite and courteous. Restaurant did not seem that clean, in fact dark and dirty. Has left a bad taste in our mouth and and a desire to not return. If this review has been helpful I appreciate your feed back and ask you... More
