We had breakfast here 3 times on a recent trip to Palm Desert and enjoyed everything we tried, from eggs with hash browns and fresh rolls to oatmeal to those beautiful pastries to quiche. Colorful mugs, which... More

Very busy, but food & service were very good. I am more of a meat & potatoes type, but went outside of the box with their Spinach Frittata which was excellent. Left feeling full but not Stuft. Stayed away from the Bakery items, even though they looked very good.

We sat on the patio and had a delicious Eggs Benedict which was accompanied by their amazing bread and butter, as we waited. The coffee was wonderful and the potatoes served with the eggs were done perfectly. It was an enjoyable meal and I would definitely return for the food and excellent service.

Inside or outside, the meals are wonderful. They make their own breads and pastries and we are never disappointed.

We were totally blown away by the quality, service, and great food we had for breakfast. Very intimate place, a little noisy, but not enough to be irritating. The food and attention to the tastefulness was very impressive.

We recently spent four days in La Quinta and ended up eating three breakfasts and one dinner at La Quinta Baking Company. The food is fresh and delicious and the owner and staff friendly and customer service oriented. I highly recommend this restaurant when in La Quinta.

This location is small, but the food is pretty good. I had the spinach frittata on day and eggs and sausage on another day. the best part of my breakfast was the beef breakfast sausage. I'm not a pork eater so this was an extra special treat and it was good. The desserts a fantastic also.
