We arrived from Hancock, MD on a very rain and muddy day - and we looked the part. My riding buddy and I sheepishly entered the cafe caked in mud and were instantly welcomed by Rose and her assistant....within 2 minutes we felt like family. That alone is enough to recommend this place. As it was a little cool as... More

After a morning of exploring the C&O canal at the Williamsport Visitor Center, we happened upon the Desert Rose Cafe and decided to stop for lunch. This is such an enjoyable place to eat and the food was very good! The staff are very welcoming and attentive.

I walked in w/cyclist's seat rash and the woman promptly directed me to their full-service restroom/dispensary, complete with Gold Bond spray and gauze pads. What a relief! Then, she made up a terrific, thick all-fruit smoothie, tasty iced latte, red beans and rice and grilled cheese sandwich. As if all that weren't enough, she then cleaned our dusty bottles and...

Food was good, service was friendly. The owner took our water bottles and refilled them. They have multiple bike racks. Definitely a great place for lunch while you are biking the trail.

This was the second time my wife and I stopped here for lunch. It's a smaller place but do not be fooled by the size. The menu is quite simple, but the fresh food they serve is simply delicious. The gazpacho we started with was very good. I had a BLT with a half inch of bacon, crisp lettuce, and... More

Well, the latte was very good, but the tuna sandwich was just "OK." Lots of filling, nice bread, but I specifically asked the waitress if the tuna was albacore because I am picky about my tuna. "Yes," she said. NO... Not only was it not albacore, it wasn't even "white" .. It was light .. Yuck. Nice try, but the... More

I stopped here with two friends while cycling the C&O canal in July. The owner was friendly and helpful, and the food was excellent. I ordered the BLT with spinach instead of lettuce. The owner owns the ice cream shop across the street. And, though it wasn't open yet that day, she sent an employee across the street to open... More

We loved this place! The food was great, filling, and healthy. The owners made us feel right at home. The menu choices were excellent. AND we took some food with us that was packaged to go. If you are bicycling, don't miss out on this place. The chocolate chip cookies that we took with us were the best ever and... More
