Really simple and straightforward. The breakfasts are great (never had lunch there, but I would guess it is just as delicious)! Friendly and great food. Easy stop-by on the way to your next destination. Definitely, a local favorite.

Small dining facility with a lot of character. Very good service and food. The prices are very reasonable and there are plenty of menu options. Small town just outside of Palm Springs but was worth the stop.

We thoroughly enjoyed our breakfast at Morongo Valley Cafe. The biscuits and pancakes were light and fluffy, and the omelette was delightful. Service was friendly and prompt- got a lot for our money here!
