We've been here for breakfast many times over the past 20 years ... and have never been disappointed. Perfectly cooked eggs, crispy hash browns and light and fluffy pancakes. Breakfast variety to satisfy both large and small appetites. Reasonable prices. Value can't be beaten!

You can tell that the grub must be good when the locals are willing to wait in line to get a seat. Food and service were both very good.

We had a delicious lunch with great service. The burger and the fish sandwich were very good and the buns were lightly toasted and yummy! Dill pickles! Great sweet potato fries!The additional bonus was that the food was ready very quickly!

This is a cafe where the locals hangout. It was a nice family atmosphere and the food was good cafe food. We had breakfast here and enjoyed our meals. Service was fast and friendly.

Delicious French toast. Love having breakfast there plus fresh squeezed juices. Biscuits and gravy are like your southern grandma used to make. Yum

A very simple place with counter service and tables. A favorite with the many RV'ers in the area. Plain, satisfying cuisine with large portions. A little hard to find. Park in back of THE MALL.

We're so glad we found this place during our stay at Borrego Valley Inn. It's a little hard to find (tucked away at the back of a small mall on Palm Canyon Road) but you can park easily and it's so very much worth seeking...More

Typical small town diner where the locals are. My husband became one of the locals and ate breakfast there every day of our stay in Borrego Springs as he could get his "nothing fancy, bacon, eggs and potatoes there . Best for breakfast/brunch.

Waitress handles toast, all of them, all of them handle cash and dirty dishes. Saturday there was no hot water or soap. Cook ate at counter, walked in kitchen back to work without washing.
