We eat here about once a week. We enjoy the staff and the food is good for the price. The menu has a variety of choices from Prime Rib to Patty Melts. We like the prime rib and the "steak on a stick". People love the Fish and Chips. And the Cobb Salad is one of my favorites. Both of... More

This cafe was walking distance from our hotel that we stayed at for the Coachella Music Festival and we ate breakfast here 4 days in a row!!! Great customer service and amazing food! I definitely recommend the western omelet, the hashbrowns and the banana nut waffle! The food is delicious and very well priced!! Would definitely recommend!!!

Hard to find, no signage in front of hotel. Located in the Desert Hot Springs Hotel. They have day use which the locals use. Cozy and homey comfort food. We had Brian as our waiter.

This small cafe in an aging resort could use a bit of an update, but staff is friendly and helpful. The menu is surprisingly large and the food is really tasty. So nice to have it right on site.

The pools are great but the rooms leave a lot to be desired.you need an elevator and I think this would enhance your spa and bring a lot more people to your hotel.

This is an old style cafe. The food was very good and the prices were very reasonable. The bar area is comfortable and friendly.

Just a casual place to go with flip flops and shorts! Food is tremendous. Hamburgers are really good and the fries the best. The prime rib and steaks are inexpensive and really good. The real sleeper is the Friday special when hey have seared Ahi tuna- you won't believe it! Super friendly staff makes it feel like home.
