A must stop for date shakes. Best in Coachella Valley for sure. Great burritos, tacos, and chili cheese dogs. Be sure to visit the patio in the back and enjoy the garden. Crazy that a place like this is on a dusty corner in Desert Hot Springs. The owner has lots of pride and everything is made to order and... More

Do not get turned off by the way this place looks because it has the best dates (Medjools are my favorite), and DATE SHAKES around. I have tried many, and this is by far superior to all of them. They have the right amount of sweetness and the vanilla ice cream is fresh and tasty. Small is plenty big for... More

I first tried a date shake in 2011, when the Celebrity Tour Bus stopped here. I am now addicted. I tell everyone that goes anywhere near Palm Springs that they MUST try these shakes! The staff are phenomenal, we drove in gale force winds to get one last shake before we headed back to Canada April 1st. The other date... More

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
