We had a late morning breakfast here - good food, but nothing special! Feels more like an upscale Denny's with much higher prices!

Whenever we visit the Palm Springs area, we visit Louise's. Since we usually stay in LaQuinta it's convenient. The food is consistently very good and the service is excellent as well. Only open for breakfast and lunch. We ate there 4 times in the two weeks we were there, twice for lunch and twice for breakfast. Warning: You will often... More

My husband and I frequent this restaurant usually once a week. The service is top-notch. Coffee is great and the menu is varied, with many different selections for either breakfast or lunch. If you like diner food this is the place for your traditional diner breakfast.

This is a good place for breakfast, brunch or lunch. It's not fancy and is pricey given the very plain interior. But it is a favorite among locals and offers an enormous breakfast menu that is next to impossible to make a choice. Everything looks good. Think, big American breakfast with every kind of permutation that sounds mouthwatering. Great hash... More

Favorite breakfast/brunch spot in LaQuinta. They simply make the best omlettes. Eggs are fluffy and moist, not runny. Three eggs/ four eggs used. Multiple choices to be included. My favorite is avocado, tomato, and jack cheese. Hash browns are great and a real plus is that they know how to make buttered toast with homemade jam included. No place better... More

We happened to find it near the area in LaQuinta that also has some of our favourite stores. And incidentally handy for a breakfast after a desert hike off Montezuma. Remember they are closed by 2 pm and weekends are busy. I was able to order a pared down omelet ( 2 instead of 3 eggs), milk for my coffee,... More

The place was a crowded and a little pricey, but the food was good... Service was good and the wait was not very long.

Louise's is an established restaurant that has been our "go to" placed for breakfast and lunch. The breakfast menu is extensive and the lunch menu covers the basic and well-loved lunches. If there's a long line (and that's usually the case on weekends), the wait isn't more than 15 minutes. The walls are filled with photos of stars and well-known... More
