Loved the tuna melt and the burgers. There are daily specials every evening. They grow their own vegetables at the restaurant.

After the trek to get to Borrego Springs, I wasn't expecting a choice of such nice looking restaurants. My cousins had been to other restaurants and thought this was best. The menu had everything I like for breakfast/lunch. Settled on the taco salad. It was...More

Very good food and service, some confusion in the kitchen about our order: they happily corrected it and made a small discount to the bill which I appreciated. Very nice atmosphere and decor. Located just off the circle park, main street thru town. Bacon, eggs,...More

If you eat food, eat it here. Breakfast and dinner are superb! We haven't tried the lunch menu yet, but that's only because we weren't in Borrego Springs long enough. Breakfast? Chicken fried steak and eggs made my day.....you don't need a knife to cut...More

Always busy but worth the wait. Service can be a bit slow when crowded and the staff can be overwhelmed. The soups, sandwiches and salads are good. A fun place with some outdoor tables and herb garden.

Was ok for breakfast (two eggs, toast and coffee), but a long wait for food/service (took almost 90 minutes from the time we sat down to when we left for those two eggs and toast!). Oh- and for two of us, those two eggs, toast...More

Really the best food and service in town. Great variety on the menu. Great breakfast. The cinnamon crumb cake as an appetizer is a great touch. Pleasant atmosphere where you can actually have a conversation.

Food is descent, service friendly. Usual dishes, nothing unique. Service was very slow. To be fair, have not found any restaurant with 4 stars and above.

They have beer for sure, and I think wine also. They have a little 3-4 seat bar inside so I'm sure they wine as well. We were on the patio with our dogs, so didn't see.
