I want to go back! It was AMAZING! Carla herself served us the second time we had breakfast here and was most pleasant. Her home fries are the best. I want to try the whole menu, love the titles of all the dishes. The diner...More

Carla and Marla and all their staff could not have been more welcoming for Christmas Eve breakfast. We loved it and them. A very traditional American diner which is such an excitement to an English family. Thank you!

This happened on a Wednesday at 12:30 in April 2017- just in case the owner would like to know who of her staff acted this way. First off, this was my first visit ever to the diner. My first impression here on trip adviser was...More

Fantastic, friendly throwback diner. Split pea soup so good we took extra home! Better Reuben sandwich than the delis in Palm Springs at half the price! Place is named Carla's Route 62 Diner. Carla and staff are terrific. Take a sandwich for the trails or...More
