“good selection but prices not so hot”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 November 2013

they definitely have a great selection of dried fruits, nuts, and other such items. I found the prices quite a bit higher than I am used to for most of the items. the date shake wasn't terrible but we didn't like it enough to actually drink it. the hot dog was good... so, all in all not a bad stop but I would not bother again.

“Date shakes”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 November 2013

Whenever passing through or near, we try to make a stop here. First, we got 3 date shakes and 1 banana date shake and some sandwiches. Then we sampled a couple of types of dates, nuts, dried fruit, wasabi peas. We took home some of the above along with date paste (it includes a recipe for home date shakes). Highly recommended!

“Date shakes -- yum!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 October 2013

Hadley's is a de rigueur stop on your way to/from the desert. It's basically a big store, filled with all kinds of dried fruit and nuts. They specialize in dates, which they grow. You can taste them and learn the difference between a deglet and a medjool (my favorite). They have their own special mixes of fruit and nuts, drinks and other healthy food and snack items. They also have a little food counter where you can order date shakes (date only or date-banana) and an assortment of sandwiches. Prices are reasonable. It gets very busy on the weekend. Be prepared to wait a long time for a sandwich.

“Banana Date Shake”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 October 2013

Saw that this Jane & Michael Stern pick was enroute to the Cabazon Dinosaurs and decided to stop. My friend and I were able to pick up a bunch of good snacks for the road, and some gifts (my husband loves dates), to take back home to Michigan. We both ordered banana date shakes, and they were delicious. Pretty cool how they come out of the old ice cream machines. This place was a true step-back in time, my favorite kind of place to visit, roadside Americana.

“More then a unique dried fruit and nut store”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 April 2013 via mobile

We stopped for lunch as we were heading to LA after being out on the high desert. Nothing on the front of the large store says anything about a place to eat, but one of our party was in the know. The BLTs were great as was the chicken salad sandwitch. A very unique drink, is the date shake. A milk shake with ground up dried dates.
Dont miss a walk around the large store with a variety of tasty goods to bring home.
