This looks like a converted Denny's. At the corner of Hobson water and Lovekin off I-10 in Blythe. Appears to be very popular with locals. It is right near some name brand motels. Clean and food is coffee shop good. Prices have increased because of the Democrats minimum wage increase, so it's not cheap anymore

Had an egg toast breakfast with Hash browns and 4 or 5 strips of bacon. My wife had the pancake sandwich both were excellent and worth the money.

It took forever to get drinks, and the check never came. In between, the food was marginal. The cook wanted tips.... Our tip - if it's "deluxe", put more than 4 somewhat tough thin slices of beef in the sandwich. Buy more potatoes so you can serve mashed or baked with chicken fried steak. Our friend had the chimichanga and... More

Breakfast burrito was good. Tried Monterey Sandwich, really greasy. Bread was soaking. Chicken fried steak, tasty but very fatty. Personnel were all polite, courteous, helpful. Restaurant was clean. We all agreed we'd try a different coffee shop on our next trip to Blythe.

Great little place in Blythe. Not real speedy but good is good and staff is friendly. Steak sandwich is very good!

If you are traveling across California on the 10, do yourself a favor and get off the highway! Blythe is way more interesting than a lot of what this stretch of the 10 has to offer and I'm just grateful that local joints like this are still in business. Counter service friendly and fast. I ordered eggs and sausage and... More

Gave it one last try. Patty Melt ordered, came out on white toasted bread, no cheese or onions, steak all fat. Never again, unfortunately!

Have attempted to stop at Courtesy on 3 occasions, but it was closed. Was told that since they cut their hours, most of the staff quit. They need full time work, not hit and miss hours. Finally found it open on a Friday nite. Food now over-priced and poorly cooked. It's clear the new ownership has no idea what they're... More

The architecture suggests a former Norm's coffee shop, and the menus is a typical coffee shop menus with a few Mexican dishes thrown in. It is folksy, friendly and clean with nothing particularly outstanding to mention. I had the worst chicken fried steak I have ever had there, but regularly enjoy the French dip, hamburger, club sandwich, etc.

Unfortunately, the new owners took a viable, thriving restaurant since it opened in early 1960s, and destroyed it by making changes that the customers told new ownership they were unhappy with but were told, "change is good"!! Well, evidently they've lost all of the regulars by serving sub-standard food and removing 30 yr employees that the patrons loved. Their beef... More
