This place was very nice, I have a love for biscuits and gravy and my fiancé got huevos rancheros. We got the freshly squeezed Orange Juice (pulpy and delicious) I had to stop myself from gulping it down as it was $5.50 a glass!!! I am so happy that we stopped in and grabbed a bite to eat for breakfast!

We had several meals here since it has a pet friendly patio that gladly welcomed our 2 dogs, has really good breakfasts, lunches, and dinners, and is located outside the center of Idyllwild. The menu is eclectic and has a strong Asian influence. The fresh squeezed orange juice was the best I've ever had. Prices are reasonable and service, excellent.

When we arrived we actually thought about going someplace else, but we are so glad that we stayed! The menu is very eclectic with many Korean specialties. I ordered the bibimbap which is a rice, veggie, and meat dish topped with a fried egg. It came in a big metal bowl and was still hissing on the table. The serving... More

Tried this place for breakfast and wasn't disappointed at all. I had the huevos rancheros and my wife had a waffle a la carte. Attentive service. No complaints whatsoever. Would go again!

This café was suggested by our hotel proprietor. We were there fore breakfast. The food was ok, although they got my order wrong. My husband had corned beef hash, which he was convinced came out of a can. I ordered the "apple pancake", which was more like apple fritters - slices of apple (which were good) dipped in batter and... More

After our hike we were told that this place had amazing hamburgers. They were not lying. We got the BBQ Blue Cheese hamburger and it was GREAT. I am so happy we followed a tip from another hiker.

Our stay at the Quiet Creek Inn came with a free breakfast here. It was clean and had a good atmosphere...art on the walls, locals chatting away over coffee, and a big piano (nobody playing at breakfast. The homemade strawberry jam was good. The sausage links were good. Hashbrowns were average. Coffee was really bad. Cinnamon roll was just a... More
