Read a review and decided to stop. We were very glad we did! Actually we went once for breakfast and once for lunch. Great service. Good quality food. Nice variety. Breakfast all day. Reminded us of the diners in NJ

This should be a larger restaurant since it is quite popular during meal times; meaning, you might have to wait, but the wait is worth it. Typical upgraded coffee shop with a cozy atmosphere, and you can hear what your friends occupying the same table are saying. Free parking in a small lot shared by other businesses, plus free street... More

Whenever we are in the Palm Springs area we stop in to eat at Don & Sweet Sue's Cafe. We were there 3 times last week. The food is always great and the service is good too.

The stuffed pork chop was very good. The waitress was one of the friendliest I've encountered. A good experience.

Food was okay. Was hard to eat with all the tacky decor. I think it's been around so long no one has updated the place.

Reading all the reviews on trip advisor I was expecting excellent food and uber friendly staff. None of it happened. Staff didn't look very excited to see us showing up early on Saturday morning ( shortly after 7 am). The "fresh" pressed orange juice had a bitter taste as if the whole orange (with the peel) was pressed. I ordered... More

This is one of our favorite places to go. The food is great and comes out quick just the way it is ordered. We love the staff, most of them have been working there for many years and I feel like part of a family when I am there. You won't be disappointed, at least I haven't been.

This is a place for both locals and tourist alike. They really seem to know all of the regulars by name. The breakfast was great.
