“Cool "local" spot”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2014

This is a classic small town bar/restaurant -- lots of local color, fair to good bar food (a full menu), friendly service and a cool look and feel inside and out (at least two patio dining options).
Worth a visit if you have no interest in either franchise food or hoity-toity dining.

“Flies and Long Wait”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 June 2014

Ate here once before and avoided it altogether this time. We waited forever to be waited on with flies dancing on the window sill above our table. After waiting nearly an hour for our food, we were about to leave when the plates were dumped at our table.

“Nice casual coffee shop”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 March 2014

We had lunch and breakfast here on our recent three-day stay in Idyllwild. Food was good and prices reasonable. We'd eat here again on a future trip.

“Relatively poor - at best”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 March 2014 via mobile

Stayed in Idyllwild for two months so I've tried many, if not all, of the restaurants.
I ate here twice in that period of time. Breakfast and dinner.
Both times this restaurant cured my appetite.
All of the other restaurants are much better.

“Good Breakfast Special”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 January 2014

We stopped for the breakfast special and weren't disappointed. The staff was wonderful, the food good and the bill not too bad! All in all, we will return.
