Workers are the best, food is so good, and great atmosphere. It can get pretty crowded from time to time, especially in the afternoon in my experience. But still the best coffee shop in the desert.

Stopped here fo a quick pick me up. Try the Cold Nitro brew!! Noticed large sandwiches being served and yummy pastries. Would have tried 1 if I had not just eaten.

Don't let the "Indian Wells" name and address fool you. The nifty little "IW Coffee" may be just across the border from Palm Desert, and in a community, Indian Wells, known for the age (old) and wealth (considerable) of its citizenry, but its offerings have...More

When IW opened a few years back just around the corner from us it got a tough start- poor coffee, not great service and not much else. IW has had a turnaround and is now VERY popular and deservedly so. Coffee is much better, they...More
