Great little gem that serves breakfast all day. My mom and I were in the area for Desert Trip and so were having a hard time getting up and out in the morning early enough to catch breakfast at our restaurant. They have a lot of variety on their menu and serve big portions. They coffee is typical diner coffee,... More

Excellent service and great food. This was our first breakfast in the area and we may not try anywhere else. There were 4 of each having a different breakfast and all of them were delicious with plenty of food.

Tried this wonderful local establishment for breakfast. We had the Shamrock (poached-eggs, over corned-beef hash), Sausage breakfast burrito, and sausage and cheese omelet. All three breakfasts were delicious. Service was also fast and friendly. When in the area, we will be back.

This is a nice family type place. The portions are large and tasty. I am new in town and have eaten here once a week. they are very accommodating as I have to be on a special diet. Seems like a local hangout as the wait staff are always getting updates from the gentlemen at the half round counter. Love... More

Firstly this is in the other end of Ramon Road and once there you want to quickly scurry back to PS. However, good food with a homey touch. Worth a trip but it's a scene on the weekend. Not big on atmosphere but good on portion size.

This is one of the most friendly, laid-back and welcoming restaurant in the valley. The food is simple and comforting. Portions are ample and prices are excellent. The extensive menu has both American classics and some Mexican offerings. Don't expect atmosphere. The decor is simple and homey. The staff is makes you feel like you are a regular no matter...

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 reason for the 4 star instead of the 5 star is because the waitress criticized the busboys. She made a mistake and... More
