“A perfect coffee shop !”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2014

As you walk in, everyone says hello ! Someone always acknowledges you right away and ask what you would like to drink ! Unlike that other place in town, the red ocotillo ! The food style at Kendall is coffee shop, it is very good ! The place is friendly, the waitresses very pleasant and fast ! Prices reasonable ! I hear they will be getting a patio , that will be terrific, sitting outside drinking coffee and eating pancakes at 8am , what could be better in borrego Springs !

“Good breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2014 via mobile

Enjoyed breakfast there two times this week. Very good biscuits and gravy. Homey atmosphere with mostly locals. Full carafe of ice tea was a relief from the heat and great service.

“Go here!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2014

So yet another review of the places we ate in the hot off season of Borrego Springs. As I am always trying to eat low carb, my first meal here was breakfast and was a perfectly fine omelette and cottage cheese. Lunch was really good... We both had The grilled chicken sandwich, the baja, with avocado and bacon, lettuce wrapped with sweet potato fries, ( their carbs "metabolize" better,) It was so good! Everything was fresh, the breast tender and juicy. Service was very good.

They are only open until 2 pm in the off season so be forewarned. I will definitely be back.

“much better than it looks”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2014

we had breakfast here and teh food was excellent. Large portions and well prepared. Service was excellent. This is an older local diner type of place so there is not much atmosphere but good food. Would recommend.

“Oasis in the desert”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2014

On the main drag in Borrego. Lively atmosphere with seating in the bar area or booth seating on the other side that is quiet and more intimate. The service was quite friendly and the menu quite large. The burgers are great, and the dinner I had very good. I would definitely come back to try another dinner selection.
