Bad Food, Staff is nasty and they over charge you on purpose. Then the do not give you a receipt when you question them. This place is truly awful. AVOID.

John’s reminds me of a place in my home town that hasn’t changed in 60 years. Americana! Not a gourmet spot but traditional offerings probably with old tried and true recipes, done the same way for ages. Good, basic, stuff. I actually enjoy standing a...More

Kind of like a fast food place - You stand at the counter, wait to be noticed, and place your order. Then you sit down and they bring it to your table. No one is rude, in fact some of the servers are nice, but...More

We have been to John's perhaps 300 times over the past few decades and have never come away disappointed. All the griddle dishes: Eggs, burgers, sausages, as well as fresh tuna, turkey, club, etc. sandwiches. My favorite: The half-pound "jumbo gourmet burger" for $6.75. There...More

Reminds me of a large cafe from my home town. Casual environment, padded booths, big breakfast/lunch/dinner menu, great homemade breakfast choices with large portions at average but fair prices.

Been coming here for 27 years and finally it has happened. The love and care is not in the food anymore. Chicken is ALWAYS overcooked, Gyro was terrible and who just plops down a serving of runny coleslaw (not in a container) in with the...More

During our stay in Palm Springs we stopped at John’s twice for breakfast. The California breakfast burrito was fresh and delicious. The tortillas are thin and tasty. The avocado and tomatoes are fresh and delicious. The menu is has many options and is reasonably priced....More

We love the Palm Springs John's and eat there often whenever we're in town. Since we were staying in a hotel in Rancho Mirage, we decided to try this location. While the menus and prices are similar, we found the food and service a bit...More

I really like this place. The menu - on the board behind the counter offers incredible variety of menu items, prices are fair and quality and quantity is good. If you want a quick, good and pleasant coffee shop stop - this is the place.
