We decided to stop here because their parking lot was crowded - usually a good sign. It is not fancy, but if you are looking for a place to rest and eat, this is it. We stopped here for breakfast and it filled the bill.

We were up early to get on our way to Joshua Tree. The lady at our hotel had said that the Carousel was the place to go for a good breakfast. When we arrived they were closed. Two men who were waiting in the parking lot said they should be open. Just then, we saw a lady thru the door... More

After a long day in Joshua Tree park, we went for dinner and instead ate breakfast - how I bless the person who invented the all-day breakfast concept. Good plentiful diner-style food, excellent service from a sweet and helpful waitress, great value. An unexpected find blooming in a town whose desert qualities tend to extend to its restaurants.

After going to Denny's for the first three days of stay in 29 Palms discovered this gem. The sign out front said 2 eggs, 2 pancakes, and 2 bacon or sausage $3.50. I thought I'm not overly hungry so I'll try it (expecting tiny pancakes and small pieces of bacon). It was delivered by a friendly and attentive waitress on... More

This place sucked. It is very dirty. The fans had dust piled up on cause prob hadn't cleaned on years. The walls surrounding the booth had food stains on it, look at the pic I posted. Idk how people come in here, it being so filthy. The breakfast was garbage and over priced.

We had breakfast here before visiting Joshua Tree National Park. The breakfast are good, plentiful, and not very expensive. My wife had french toast with an extra topping that she said was delicious. I had ham and eggs, with a huge slice of ham. The place was packed with customers, but the service was still fast and thorough. We went... More

The hotel we are staying at doesn't have a breakfast so we decided to check out the carousel Cafe since it had great reviews here and it did not disappoint. We both were completely satisfied. Quick service, reasonable price and good food
