Pinocchio is only open for bfast and lunch. They stop serving @ 2 pm. If you arrive around 2pm, they will give you and hour and then the place is closed and being locked up. The menu is enormous with lots of bfast and lunch options- everything from eggs to pancakes, burgers and salads. My favorite- the bottomless mimosas for... More

We came upon the restaurant while walking around town on a rainy day. It was crowded and we tried it. Great lunch choices. You really feel the ambiance of Palm Springs. Loved the Lucille Ball statute outside.

We stopped by for Sunday Brunch and were pleasantly surprised by the speed of the wait. The crowd waiting helped us make the decision that this was the place to go for brunch and the all you can drink champagne ($4.95 per person) sealed the choice. The staff is bustling and look like they are having a lot of fun.... More

We stopped here for brunch. The prices are very reasonable and the amount of food you get is huge. We had the crab cakes eggs benedict (would DEFINITELY recommend this) it was delicious. For $5 you can drink bottomless champagne. Need I say any more?

If you're looking for a sumptuous breakfast in a friendly homey environment, Pinocchio's is the place in Palm Springs. They serve HUGE portions and everything is truly delicious. Highly recommended for breakfast or brunch.

When four pages of the menu are committed to the alcohol options and endless champagne and OJ the food expectations should be tempered. Sat on the patio and have to avoid getting burned by the heat bars - really it wasn't that cold. The food was mediocre. The bacon and assuage at least were better then most - the pancakes... More

Best breaky in PS. How can you not love a place with all day happy hour! Eggs Benny rock and if you don't like your servers, then it's you, not them! Love it!

Bless their hearts, they really do think they have a wonderful place. Bottom line: if $5 bottomless champagne is your thing, if you prefer quantity over quality, if jar salsa and frozen thawed industrial guacamole is your idea of great food---and if you absolutely don't drink coffee, this place is for you. Otherwise, I hate to say it---I really do,... More
