We went to Louise's Pantry on Hwy 111, Palm Desert at lunchtime. My friend had been there several times, usually for breakfast food. But it was my first time at this location. I played it safe with the Chinese chicken salad, but I was very disappointed with it. It was a soggy mess with too much dressing. Mostly lettuce with... More

Always a good place to stop for brunch after church or really anytime. Has lots of old world charm and we hear very good meals at night.

I finally decided to try this restaurant and hoped that my old favorite "beef dip" would be as good as I remembered from their old locations. The meat was full of gristle, and I had to spit out 1/4 of it. The mashed potatoes were cold. My husband's chicken salad sandwich was OK but nothing special. Our waitress never came... More

I believe this is a breakfast & brunch-only place (open until 2 pm), but their breakfasts are great. I had Eggs Benedict, the wife had Sausage & Eggs, and we "tried" to split a short stack of their famous pancakes. Couldn't finish all of it, even though we were starving. But very good food; the country potatoes are some of... More

We went in wanting to have lunch. We both had salads, two different types. The waiter was so nice after asking him about a flyer we had that showed a wedge salad (that wasn't on the menu) he took the flyer and on the back was a coupon, buy one lunch get one free. One free lunch! Would go back... More

Today was a very hectic morning with a great deal of stress. So as comfort we went out for a drive and a late breakfast. On the recommendation of others we went to Louise's Pantry, and not only found comfort, but a new go to place for more brunches, and other mealtimes. I ordered the Jimmy's Special which simples was... More

We were seated quickly w/ coffee & tea close behind. Servers were quick & efficient, making sure all was covered. Food was very tasty & plentiful. Some dishes could easily be shared. We would stop here again.

We stay in Palm Desert, but have always driven to La Quinta at least once during the times we visit to enjoy Louise's Pantry breakfast. But no more. Discovered this location during our recent visit and found it to be just as good and a much better ambience. It's got a brand new trendy feel, with a small bar, lots... More

Nothing special. Wait was only 15 mins for busy Saturday. Portions where huge you could share. Menu a simple breakfast with a couple of Mexican inspired choices. Staff attentive and service was quick.

We stopped here on a Sunday morning for late Breakfast. There was a line out the door of people waiting for tables. That is usually a good sign that the food is good. BUT unfortunately we didn't stay to eat. When were waiting in line a hostess came behind us, and instead of kindly asking to move (which we would... More
