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

We ate here two different mornings. The food is really good here. Large amount on your plate. It is small what small inside. You might have to wait, but it well worth the wait. Fantastic place for breakfast.

Food met expectations for breakfast as we were on our way to a number of hikes through the park and left ready to go. I had a twist on the usual eggs benedict and the cheese sauce was a little heavy but I just scrapped off what I didn't want. Had a few refills of hot water for my tea... More

Dropped in for breakfast to find it heaving with a delightfully varied customer base including plenty of locals. Service was amiable and efficient although under pressure. My wife had 'French Seniors' - there must be some very big seniors around! I enjoyed a real 'downhomer' breakfast with too many biscuits for me

I got to Twentynine palms late on a week night during off season and came upon the Carousel Cafe. The server was so friendly and welcoming. The food was tasty and the service was fast and attentive. I especially liked that my server asked me about my plans while in town and offered lots of local insight into what to... More

We were thwarted on our first visit to Carousel by the wait for a table at lunch; they were little overwhelmed because more people were around on President's Day. We were more successful the following day for breakfast and were glad we made the effort. No surprises on the menu, but everything was done up well. Extra bonuses: a daily... More
