I enjoy omelets and Louises makes great ones, plus their other breakfasts are also very good. My one major grip is that their price for coffee is way to high. We have found other places with good food and reasonable prices for food and coffee, so we have stopped going. There are usually 3 or 4 of us.

The eggs benedict were very good, but pricey, about 50% more than normal. Service was fast and friendly.

Every golfing trip to La Quinta I stop at Louise's Pantry. This restaurant can be very busy but the service is quick and efficient. Very clean in appearance and decorated with photos of professional golfers many of which are autographed. One can quickly overdose on the portions of food. I promise no matter your choice of meal you will not... More

We had breakfast at Louise's Pantry. A very nice cafe with an excellent choice of breakfast options. Our server was friendly and helpful. Prices were really good as was the food and drinks. Parking readily available and all round nice place to have a relaxing breakfast in a wonderful part of California.

Arrive early if you don't want to wait! It is really popular and not very big so fills up quickly. Food is wonderful - some of the best breakfast meals anywhere. Service is good too.

We had high expectations when we arrived as there were cars everywhere around this little cafe and the line of chairs outside indicated there would often be a wait. There was. But it was a short wait. The coffee was hot and good, my wife had hot tea and they promptly offered lemon and honey which pleased her no end.... More

By sure the best for breakfast, but get there early or you may have to wait a few minutes before you get seated. But the wait is well worth it, my favorite is the chicken fried steak and eggs. I have tried several different items on the menu and they were all very good no complaints about Louise's

Big portions of very good food. The best diner in the desert. The Corned beef hash and eggs is the best I have eaten. Popular but worth the wait. Excellent service.

Louise's Pantry was just as described: good food, friendly staff and busy. We got right in so didn't get the free mimosa. The eggs Benedict was delicious but a bit pricey, the orange juice freshly squeezed.
