The coffee here is better than most of the alternatives. It is clearly a hangout for locals and has a funky and enjoyable atmosphere. There is a variety of home baked goods to go with your coffee as well as lunch items.

This is the meeting hole for the locals when they want a simple cup and easy food- friendly owner and customers and always warm or cool depending on what is needed...

We went to Carlee's for lunch when we first arrived in Borrego Springs to see the historic 20-year bloom of spring flowers. The sign on the door was a bit off-putting, warning of long waits for food coming out of their small kitchen.
The place was full of other tourists, but we were seated at a table fairly quickly. We ordered and chatted for a while, then were served their wonderful hamburgers! Yum!!
Later that evening, after watching the sunset over the mountains with a glass of wine, we returned for dinner.
The waiter recognized us & seated us immediately.
Carlee's isn't fancy, but their food is very good.
Servings are large.

The locals obviously love this place. Crowded, lively and noisy, with a fun band on Friday night. The service was fine, considering the crowd, the food was just O.K.

Sorry, but despite some of the wonderful reviews, we had the blandest tunas salad sandwich ever. Was it just an off day? Well, the large chunks of tuna were dry, there was nothing but mayo on it, and the sourdough (as ordered) seemed like regular italian bread. When I firs picked it up, I thought it was stale bread. No, it was "lightly toasted". May have been, but it was also stale. Didn't have a good experience. Hope it's better for the rest of you.
