The place was a crowded and a little pricey, but the food was good... Service was good and the wait was not very long.

Louise's is an established restaurant that has been our "go to" placed for breakfast and lunch. The breakfast menu is extensive and the lunch menu covers the basic and well-loved lunches.

Great home style food (Breakfast and Lunch). Top notch service and huge portions. One of our favorites. They also have another location in Palm desert.

We stopped in for lunch and were very happy that we did. The staff was friendly, the restaurant was clean, the menu had a wide variety of choices and the food was very good. The portions were hardy and the pricing fair. The breakfast menu also looked very good--wish we had found this place before the end of our vacation!

Breakfast and lunch offer a big variety of very good choices and quality food. The portions are large and usually take some home with you.

Came for breakfast. They serve pretty basic breakfast classics (omlettes, chicken fried steak, ham and eggs) along with Mexican dishes (chilaquiles, juevos rancheros). Food was tasty, service was good. Prices reasonable.

The breakfast is always great. I have never been disappointed. Try the eggs with the 1/2 or whole slab of ham. Delicious😀!

Read all the reviews and gave it a try. Very friendly staff, everyone seems to know everybody here. If you are looking for some "good home cooking" breakfast, this is the place.

Love having a proper breakfast on holiday ...the restaurant was very clean with lots of pics of Bing Crosby and Bob Hope with friends giving it a retro feel. The staff were very efficient and the food was very prompt and cooked well. Portions are generous, it did seem to be pricey ,$85 for 4 including tip, so we maybe... More
