Recommended by staff at the resort, well worth it to help us relax and get over the jet lag. It is a nice cafe with pleasant staff, clearly popular with the locals. My hot cakes/ pancakes were massive, (twice the size of a Denny's). The...More

Nice little spot on the road on our way to Borrego Park. Had to try the cinnamon roll which was very good but is meant to share unless really hungry. Had the bacon cheeseburger, excellent flavour, nice fresh bun.

Out for a day of wine tasting and need some food? This could be your place. Superb cordon bleu got Guy Fieri out here for DDD. Food is decent, prices not bad, & people are friendly.
