Solid small town coffee shop

The traditional coffee shop with a short order grill is a staple of small town life. In Yucca Valley, it is alive and well at the the C & S Diner. It serves a good mug of American java, the breakfast and lunch fare are tasty, and the service is usually good. This isn't fine dining, but it doesn't... read more

Found the place on Yelp while driving thru Hi-Desert. We were very pleasantly surprised at the food...very fresh, delicious and affordable! Our omelettes were terrific & pancakes too! Service was a little slow but that might be how they roll up here. Very nice waitress, place was clean, great little coffee shop on main hwy!

We arrived early on Saturday as the sun rose, with my appetite . The warmth of the sun through the window made our booth even more cozy as the sleepy town came alive. After deliberating over coffee and orange juice for what seemed like a long time, we made our choices, interrupted by divergent conversations and greetings as others joined... More

We go there about once a month, cause our eating friends want to go there, We wouldn't go if just us. While the food is OK, the service is OK, it's too crowded and Very noisy at times.

We love this diner, it has wonderful home cooked tasting lunches and dinner. The lunches are typical burgers and or salads made fresh, like tuna & chicken. The soups are really good too. They have a large varied menu. The specials are different everyday and they are all delicious, I especially love the short ribs.

If you want local flavor, try this place. We stopped in on the way back from Joshua Tree National Park. The staff is very friendly, and the service is excellent. I had the Texas Sandwich, which was hot peppers, jack cheese, and a very generous portion of roast beef grilled on sour dough bread. It was excellent. I also had... More

Saw this on TripAdvisor and mentioned it to the receptionist who recommended it as well. Very local, like cafes used to be in the UK. Our meal was well cooked and very good value. Closes at 19.30 so don't leave it too late if you plan to go.

This is where the locals come to eat and greet. I like sitting on the stools at the bar so I can chat with the friendly staff. Breakfast is great and the coffee is consistently hot and fresh. If I stop in for dinner I usually order the liver and onions and am never disappointed. Always leave satisfied and feeling... More

I've never had a bad breakfast, lunch, dinner or snack at C and S Diner. Whoever's in charge of the menu has it down-pat for home cooked goodness. Non-descript surroundings, but most everybody there knows each other or the servers. You won't be disappointed unless you're among the most picky eaters on planet Earth. (Ask for the Special of the... More
