They have a huge menu! The food was so good and staff is so nice. It's a nice, comfortable cafe. My husband had the Teriyaki Chicken sandwich and I had the Chicken Salad melt, both were delicious!

We had a great breakfast here. Whenever we come to town we always have to eat there at least once. The food is very fresh and good,

We always stop at this restaurant while passing thru Palm Springs. I always select the Open Faced Turkey Sandwich.

A step above a diner and a great family feel. Food is good but nothing to write mom about. I had the eggs Benedict but would stick with basic eggs, French toast or pancakes.

We went for evening dining and found Don & Sweet Sue's the same today as it was more than 15 years ago -- outstanding. The menu is so full of offerings for all with particular tastes. We studied it for more than 20 minutes, with visits to the table by the manager - Tim - and the server. No hurry.... More

On my recent trip to PSP I returned to this place for breakfast. We had eaten here a number of years ago and I remember liking it. I immediately recognized some of the staff. This place is a family diner type of establishment. I ordered my favorite breakfast food, huevos rancheros. I have to say that I was somewhat disappointed.... More

Cute little cafe with excellent food. Older sort of cranky waitresses. Mid prices. An old standard lots of locals eat here

Palm Springs and the surrounding areas seemed inundated with corporate chains. We looked online for a nice little lunch spot and this place had good reviews. My salad was "ok" (way too many croutons!) and my husband ordered an egg salad sandwich and got a tuna salad instead. The waitress made no effort to get the order "right" and we... More
