Fabulous coffee, a sweet aroma that invites you even before you get in. I tried a couple of their coffee blends and I absolutely loved every bit of it. Tried their malted mocha, and vanilla iced coffee, but my favorite was their iced Americano.

Truly a place meant for kings and royalties. The ambience is so exotic and gives vintage vibes. They’ve got really good Stumptown coffee, and there is just something about the diner that gives a classic vintage vibe. 

The drinks and eats are at a moderate level, so there’s an adequate balance of good healthy drinks and meals and lovely taste.

Cool nearly 24-hour coffee shop in Palm springs. Great anytime-of-the-day coffee spot and meal arena. Genuinely liked their coffee bacon, even though it was my first time. Everything was nice, although they could get more hands to meet up with the demands of their large clientele. 

The food was really tasty and neither too sweet nor too bland, nor was it too spicy, it was just the perfect fit for me. An excellent coffee spot.
