A local fixture for well over 30 years, Elmer's has only gotten better with time. Whether serving breakfast, lunch, or dinner items, all dishes seem to be thoughtfully-prepared and served with a caring smile. Known for the variety of different pancakes they serve, I head for Elmer's at breakfast time for the culinarily imaginitive omelettes! My favorites incorporate ingredients like shrimp, crab, spinach, mushrooms, jalapenos, and/or bacon. The servers (many of whom have worked at Elmer's for a generation or more) are cheerful, attentive and genuinely helpful, never hesitating to accomodate different tastes/preferences whenever possible.
Besides the fluffy, flavorful omelettes, three other things that I love about Elmer's are: 1) The historically-significant and visually-intirguing photos that adorn the walls (pictures of our town's special history and unique natural treasures); 2) the "hidden" south-west facing shaded patio that looks out at majestic Mt. San Jacinto (There's a grassy area alongside this patio where my dog used to like stretch out and wait patiently for his person and any small tasty morsels that seemed to rain down from the sky); and, 3) Elmer's is a great place for families to dine together and enjoy a high-quality, homecooking-styled meal in a good-energy environment.
In summary, there are a slough of Palm Springs eateries where diners can order-up their favorite breakfast, lunch, and/or dinner meals and get a great value. My heart, mind, stomach, and wallet say Elmer's is at the top of the list.
