This little place serves healthy lunch food which you can take out back with you and eat will sitting in a completely unexpected and charming little courtyard that has shade, a small fountain, and lawn art. A nice place to get a sandwich to go if you are hiking or spending the day out doors, or to grab a quick... More

A little corner store/deli type place that has the best Date Shakes that we have every tried. It is well worth the drive to give one a try. If you are in a RV there is a large lot next door where you can stop and visit the market.

This is a tiny crowded corner store type restaurant, and there are so many happy folks that go there to eat. It appears to be a family run place, but their date shakes, sweet and full of date chips, are so good! When visiting the Coachella Valley and you are near Palm Springs, just hop onto North Indian Canyon Drive... More

We were going for a drive and stumbled onto this place by accident. It doesn't look like much when you drive up to it but it is a quaint marketplace with amazing beef and chiken tacos for $1.99. I tried one of their date shakes and wasn't crazy about it. It is a very retro place with take out food... More

We read about the fabulous date shakes here so thought we would try one. They are very sweet. I am still picking dates bits out from between my teeth. I can say I've tried one, but I won't be ordering another one any time soon.

This minimart has take out dinners-- simple but homemade--an amazing collection of sodas, and the best date shakes in the valley! Made with real dates ( not the nuggets)and ice cream, it is worth a trip. A great view of the wind turbines is on the way north of the 10. There is seating through the back door. Rustic.

We have been by many times and decided to check The Windmill Market out. The owner Lee was more than welcoming. Loved the enthusiasm. We tried the date shakes. Wow. Thick creamy and loaded with fresh dates. We already had dinner so we took a menu for another day. His variety of bottled sodas was a surprise. Love Sprechers Root... More
