We went for dinner and there aren't many meals I eat out where I can't stop commenting on how good it was. Homemade cilantro chicken soup was terrific as was the spinach salad with feta, walnuts and cranberries. Nothing artificial about any of this, fresh and the dressing was light and not overly sweet. Everything was great. We went back... More

This is the place to go if you want a great breakfast or lunch. Food is always great and fresh delivered to your table. There made be a wait sometimes because it is so popular, however it is worth the wait. Better to go during the week always a lot of people on the weekend

This is our 5th visit to Joshua Tree and we eat breakfast there daily and dinner at least once. The service is great and the food never disappoints. This trip I had eggs with polenta, topped with feta cheese and their huervo rancheros. Both were fantastic. My husband had French toast which he claims was the best ever. For dinner... More

My wife and I had breakfast here a few days ago. This place is a little more upscale than the average breakfast place with prices higher by a couple dollars. Both my wife and I liked the food when we ate it, but as we drove through Joshua Tree, things did not agree with us. I cannot really explain what... More

Food was good and the service was friendly and attentive. After a full day of hiking we needed something tasty and filling and Crossroads came through really nicely.

On our stay near Joshua Tree Nat Park, we stopped in for a breakfast that was so good, it became our morning ritual for the next two days... great service, great food and a lot of charm that makes Crossroads a Joshua Tree icon.

We had a lunch at the bar with good craft beer and a chicken quesadilla, that was tasty. We came back the next morning to split a delicious omelette. It's a nice casual cafe with a friendly staff. We also bought a coffee mug and a T-shirt we liked their logo so much.
