The immediate area has expanded in recent years, so it's a good place to get gas and food nearby. But this shop is great. They sell wonderful fruit candy (Aplets, cotlets and related), dried fruit, and have delicious date shakes. The bathrooms are clean and you have a great view. It's a terrific stop on the long road in. Just beyond the windmills, before you get into the LA area city traffic.

A friend reccomended I stop here during my drive from Palm Springs to LA. I am an east coaster who was in Cali for a combined biz/pleasure trip. After driving through barren land covered with windmills for miles, Hadley's appeared on the right, smack in front of a snow covered mountain. One story farm store. What a treasure trove of dried fruits (especially multiple treatments of dates) and nuts. Samples for the unknowing are ample. I came home with bags of dried pineapple chipotle chimoy and date rolls covered in almonds. There is an old fashioned luncheonette type area where you get the famous "date shake". 50's music plays in the background. Not being a big date fan, I was hesitant, but WOW - what a treat. Loads of fabulous ice cream with just a hint of finely chopped dates. Very different and very refreshing. A MUST stop to get a piece of California history for travelers.

Whenever we drive through the Palm Springs area and stop at the Cabazon Outlets, we always stop at Hadley's. It has a wonderful selection of nuts, candy, dates, raisins, other dried fruits, varieties of trail mixes, special breads, jams and lots of other food stuffs. I especially like to stop here before Christmas to stock up on nuts and fruits for my baking or even buy some of the items for gifts. It is quick and easy to reach it from the freeway.

it probably has been 40 years or so since I first went to Hadley's and it seems pretty much the same. Wonderful selection of dried fruits and nuts, plus I always find some unusual items like dried okra. The dates are the best, and good selection of gift items. Worth the stop.

Great SoCal icon. They have the freshest dried fruits & nuts in their armed armed store section, & a deli counter (where you can get the infamous regular or banana date shakes) & either eat there or carry-out. Their store is spotless & the restrooms clean & sparkly. It's really nice as a break place on a long trip! The staff are all very friendly & helpful. Lots of goodies for the kids - old fashioned coin purses, a wall of souvenirs to choose from, popcorn & old fashioned flavored candy sticks.
