We visited with a group staying nearby and biking on the nearby trail. Generally everyone was happy with their food choice although the waitress didn't quite get the orders correct. She cheerfully corrected her mistakes and provided some advice on the trails in the area as well. Food seemed to be served so it would be easy to take to go if you wanted to stop while on the bike trail and take something with you.

This is a great place to have a nice, different menu to sit and eat, relax, talk. It's easy to get to know the people who work and own The Desert Rose. It's very home town.

Rose is a real (and wonderfully nice) person who splits time between her Cafe and running a shuttle service for bicyclists (oh, and she has an ice cream shop across the street. We stopped in for a post Smokin Toad, after-dinner coffee. The Cafe has a great decor and the staff was very helpful (they went across the street to get us ice cream after hours). The coffee and hot chocolate are excellent

We were riding the C&O Canal and discovered this little cafe. We ended up going to our hotel and returning to the cafe for dinner. The food was great, and there were lots of options for folks on special diets.

We love the quaint little Desert Rose Cafe for a quick & light or hardy meal. Their rice & beans soup is a favorite. They are aware of what gluten free really means and will help guide you to a great selection. The g/f chocolate cake was delicious & large enough for two to share.
Their prices are reasonable & they also cater to those on bicycles, riding alone the C&O Canal.
