My turkey and avocado panini was quite good, although it was more than I could eat. THe potato salad was also pretty decent. It took a while for the food to come out, so if you're in a rush, this isn't a fast food place....More

I ended up going here for espresso four times in the week i was in Palm Springs. Their baked goods are pretty good, but their coffee was roasted exactly the way I like it. Took some home to Vancouver.

Great cafe in a historic building. I always enjoy the potato burrito for a nice breakfast. Loose leaf tea is a big plus for me. Nice decor, friendly staff, very pleasant.

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.
