Fantastic place to stop for lunch- the grilled ham and cheese was to die for. Great soup! Don’t miss the homemade potato chips.

Had coffee and cake mid afternoon after a visit to JoshuaTree NP. Cake and coffee ok but rather expensive.

We arrived fairly late in the evening but this no problem for the staff. Food options was excellent. Food was fresh and delivered quickly and hot. Very tasty. The waitress was friendly and offered great service.

Delicious and filling brunch spot, located very close to the West Entrance of Joshua Tree park, and the Visitor Center. They had plenty of breakfast and lunch options, and I personally loved the huevos rancheros.
