“Meh!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013

This is sort of akin to Denny's type dining experience. The food is certainly edible. But it's nothing to write home about.

“A nice break from resort fare”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

this place deserves a visit from anyone who needs a change from the typical overpriced, bland resort fare. We visited for breakfast, and loved the home cooking, friendly service, and bustle of the place. Precious few of these kinds of restaurants in the Coachella area, in our experience, so make sure to swing by.

“Comfort breakfast!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012

Louise's is the place I choose to go when I want a great breakfast, served fast by friendly staff. The menu is huge, my favorite is "Create your own Omelet". You can have it any way you want it, with numerous choices to pick from.

If it's your first time there, don't pass up the cornbread. They're known for it for a reason!!!

Go early, because it's a local favorite. Prices are fair for the quality you get. I've also had business breakfasts there; they never rush you, which is amazing because there's often a wait.

If you like your hash browns or bacon crisp, don't be afraid to ask--they always accommodate! Thumbs up for my favorite breakfast spot in the valley!

“Price vs Value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2012

This was our first visit to this restaurant, evidently known for breakfast. You must get there very early on the weekends or be prepared to wait. Patrons are standing in the parking lot indulging in Bloody Marys, etc. until they are seated. We elected to wait unitl a weekday morning and were able to sit at the bar. Service was excellent....no wait time. Pancakes are huge....I could only eat one (took the other home). Corned beef very good and homemade. Very good everything. It is a couple of $ more than breakfast anywhere else in this area. They certainly do a great business!

“Our tradition”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2012 via mobile

Thanks again for the beat family breakfast ever. It's our tradition to have breakfast here when we leave the La Quinta resort after celebrating Thanksgiving.
