The quaint little town of Borrego Springs is lacking in breakfast places. Hidden inside "The Mall" is this charming little spot. Once we got inside, we were greeted with a smile and were seated quickly. They have an expansive breakfast menu, from blueberry pancakes to huevos rancheros. I custom-ordered an omelette with bacon, avocado, and a cheese mix. It was... More

This is a very nice little diner - not at all pretentious, but a delight. We've been there on more than one occasion and every time was great.

Went here with husband and adult son. We all ordered a little something different for lunch. Son went with Mexican - our opinion? There are tastier Mexican options in Borrego Springs.

Busy for breakfast, but worth the wait. Mexican entrees were excellent. You often have to wait a while, even after being seated, but hey, you're on vacation, right?

Friendly staff served a great breakfast. Locals hangout which was wonderful watching friends gather. Had Blueberry pancakes which were loaded with fresh blueberries. Prices very reasonable.

We really enjoyed our breakfast at Kendall's - a very pleasant cafe in THE MALL - and a little hard to find on GPS as a consequence. my huevos rancheros were tasty, the people watching was great and the servers were charming and friendly. providing lots of attention. Recommend.

Part of the local scene since who know when, Kendalls has consistently good food and a great wait staff. If you want a touch of "local" this is the place to find it
