It is always fun to eat at Tommy's Kitchen and sit on the outside deck, except for the wasps! I hadn't had their Sunday buffet before and thought it was very tasty with so many choices. The only drawback at this location is the single bathroom for men and women. There is usually a line. The servers are so gracious and helpful.

We had breakfast on the deck and it's a great place to have a meal. However we found the service slow but friendly. The food was good but nothing special and while the breakfast menu had a lot of options, in some regards it was trying to be to fancy. Which is fine but if you want just a basic breakfast there should be greater flexibility.

This was our 2nd visit and again we had a great experience.
We only arrived 20 minutes before they closed but we were not rushed, all the team were really friendly and the food was superb....

The area has suffered after the recent wildfires as they rely on tourism.

So make the effort you will be welcomed and appreciated.....

We always take a drive up to Idyllwild when we visit Palm Springs. As Cafe Aroma is closed, we decided to try Tommy's Kitchen.....and are glad we did.
Tigger was our server and made our lunch very enjoyable with both her personality and her excellent service.
Deb had the Vegetarian Rosti and I the Sennen Rosti. Both were EXCELLENT with a generous serving.of each, she even asked how we would like our eggs served.
I am a Bread Pudding aficionado and had to try Tommy's "Swiss" version. Wow! A very different presentation but really tasty and enjoyable.

All in all, we were very pleased with our stop at Tommy's Kitchen and it is now included in our list of dining places whenever we are in Palm Springs. .
