This is a cafe where the locals hangout. It was a nice family atmosphere and the food was good cafe food. We had breakfast here and enjoyed our meals. Service was fast and friendly.

Delicious French toast. Love having breakfast there plus fresh squeezed juices. Biscuits and gravy are like your southern grandma used to make. Yum

Typical small town diner where the locals are. My husband became one of the locals and ate breakfast there every day of our stay in Borrego Springs as he could get his "nothing fancy, bacon, eggs and potatoes there . Best for breakfast/brunch.

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.
