It was our first time to this lovely coffee and healthy alternative foods. We had the latte and breakfast burritos and both were fantastic and tasty. The decor is clean, modern and very welcoming. There is a lovely shaded patio area.

I was here only once and that was to meet a realtor who suggested this spot. Really friendly wait staff, great coffee and nice indoor or outdoor seating.

Coffee was good and atmosphere was nice inside (modern/clean). There is a patio, but it overlooks the parking lot. My husband and I much preferred Joey Palm Springs. Coffee was better and the patio was MUCH cuter. Location was also better at Joey (downtown Palm...More

Ristretto is one of my favorite spots. I particularly like the fact that smoking is not permitted on the patio. I quit having coffee at another place because I like to sit outside and found it increasingly difficult to avoid smokers. Ristretto's coffee (two or...More
