We only got takeout breakfast on the morning we were leaving but it was extremely good! Wish we had found it sooner!

Kendall's is a quaint coffee shop that we stopped at for breakfast. The food was prepared exactly as we ordered, including "crispy bacon". Very clean and delicious...

We love going to Kendall's for breakfast when in Borrego Springs. The menu selections are great and the food is even better. The service is excellent too! I would highly recommend this restaurant for breakfast. Can't comment on lunch as we have not eaten there...More

They also serve lunch and dinner but we think that this is the best place in town for nice, "down-home" breakfasts. Nothing extraordinary, just good food at reasonable prices.

Probably the best breakfast in town. Staff are great- food’s excellent. Not much more to say really.

My husband and I had breakfast here twice during our visit to Borrego Springs. It's a genuine local place, not fancy, but with reliably good food and friendly service. My husband loved their breakfast special includes eggs, French toast and bacon or ham.

We've been here for breakfast many times over the past 20 years ... and have never been disappointed. Perfectly cooked eggs, crispy hash browns and light and fluffy pancakes. Breakfast variety to satisfy both large and small appetites. Reasonable prices. Value can't be beaten!

You can tell that the grub must be good when the locals are willing to wait in line to get a seat. Food and service were both very good.

We had a delicious lunch with great service. The burger and the fish sandwich were very good and the buns were lightly toasted and yummy! Dill pickles! Great sweet potato fries!The additional bonus was that the food was ready very quickly!

Waitress handles toast, all of them, all of them handle cash and dirty dishes. Saturday there was no hot water or soap. Cook ate at counter, walked in kitchen back to work without washing.
