“Coffee and Creativity”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

The menu at Old Town Coffee reminds you that your not at Starbucks anymore. All the classics are here: lattes, cappuccinos, americanos and chai teas are available, but so are some of their own creations of flavored expresso drinks, interesting teas and a number of tempting iced blended drinks. The pastries are clearly baked on the premises, and the lunch menu is creatibe and inspired!
The atmosphere is a fascinating blend of tourists (in the season) and locals who sit just outside in the desert sun and quietly take in the street scene that is always active with street fairs, farmers markets and art shows. Weekends or weekdays, this local favorite is well-worth spending a few minutes discussing the morning news with friends in neighbors in the old-fashioned, small town style in La Quinta.

Love to see the gathering and meeting of people. Lots of tables
to sit and enjoy the beautiful surrounds and to chat with friends and make new friends. Good treats and great coffee.

“Enjoyable neighborhood gathering place.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Old Town Coffee is a wonderful place to meet and share coffee, conversation and terrific breakfast and lunch items. The staff is efficient and friendly. You can always find cyclists, locals and visitors there enjoying the patio when the weather is nice (most of the time!)

“Lovely setting”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

It's a cute little coffee shop with friendly service and quaint patio, but the coffee lacked flavor. Perhaps an off day for the espresso machine?
