We hadn't had corned beef and eggs for a long time so we had that here; delish!! The corned beef was SO FRESH and not canned. Eggs over easy cooked perfect, hash browns awesome, and my wife's country fried steak and eggs and biscuits equally excellent. So why not a full 5 stars but instead 4? Perhaps gentle reader you...

what a great place and perfect for those who want to wake up early to go to the park. They are open at 6:30, we really appreciated that. We also loved the music! Awesome place.

It's a teeny tiny place (about 7 tables and counterspace) but definitely worth it, even if you have to wait. Servers are really friendly and portions are huge. Don't miss out on this great place

Country Kitchen is a teeny tiny place with only 7 tables, barely fitting into the space, and the smallest counter I've ever seen. But the place is packed with locals and with character. They offer hearty breakfasts and their specialty is Cambodian lunch with around 7 or 8 different choices. We shared a salad and stir fry udon noodles ----... More

Tiny place, which was not a problem...sat right down, ordered right away...but the food took a very long time to arrive. And when it did, the order was wrong which was frustrating...and of course, I was starving. So it took more time to get the order right. By this time I was pretty cranky. And when I went to use...

Seems like everyone tries to get into the Crossroads Cafe which is pretty good but I am not big on waiting. Found this place nearby and it was excellent. Great service and good chow. Would go back here again.

been here many times with my wife for our breakfast. Great omelets and the best chocolate chip pancakes in wild wild west. They are under new ownership now but still keep great service. Small place but make sure to visit.

Very tiny little cafe on a busy road, the food was great. Staff was very friendly. Do not let the look of the place deter you from going in to eat.Best food we had while visiting Joshua Tree area.

Needed lunch after hiking in Joshua Tree NP and stopped here for a bite. I had a BLT that was stuffed with a generous amount of delicious crispy bacon. I ordered the potato salad as a side and thought it had a funny taste. Should have gone with the fruit. My husband had a bacon burger and loved it. Cute,... More
