The best coffee ever. Chilaquiles are so good. The fruit plate is served sweetened with honey. Meals are pricey, but you get some serious delicious diner food. Special requests handled with no problem for me so I could keep gluten free.

Great food and decor.
My wife and I went here on our honeymoon. Being Portland natives, the decor and food fit our expectations nicely!

Fancy Food, Casual Atmosphere
We came in with a group of 6, and ended up sitting at the big 'picnic' table - and loved it! The decor, like the food, is a classy execution of the seemingly mundane. Most of us ordered off the special Restaurant Week prix fixe menu, and everything was delicious (fried avocado and halibut cheeks, mmmm). Full bar is also excellent, serving both classics and originals in the bar or the dining room.

This restaurant is a converted Denny's location that has been made retro chic and is part of the Ace Hotel experience. All the "bones" of the old Denny's are still there, but the mood is now youthful and the bar is funky and fun. Very casual...hotel guests in bathing suits passed through the bar while great music played and drinks flowed freely. The restaurant filled slowly with a great crowd of people...no signs of crazed, tense, posers "questing" so be seen and heard.
The food is shockingly good...amazingly fresh, creative, and flavorful...far beyond what you would expect from such a casual place. A real find. Service was excellent. No pretense, no artifice...just artistry and fun. Can not recommend this place enough!

Great find in Palm Springs
A friend suggested we meet for lunch at Kings Hwy. The service was friendly, quick and attentive. Our food was fantastic! Whereas we didn't have any dessert, they had several great looking dessert selections, all but one made on site. Overall, we were very pleased.

Great local spot
King's Highway is back from the road so you wouldn't immediately see it, but it's worth the look. Fun decor, casual and warm. Food was superior. Lamb chop one of the best. Great use of fresh, local ingredients. Had a beer I couldn't find anywhere else in Calif. Loved it! Highly recommend.

The menu didn't seem to have anything particularly exciting or special, but my husband and I were very impressed after having brunch/lunch there. We ordered the Chilaquiles, Rucola Salad, Fried Avocado and side of Parmesean Hashbrowns. All very satisfying and tasty...the Chilaquiles were not your typical greasy chilaquiles (these had very fluffy eggs and minimal grease)...the rucola salad had fried garlic that was scrumptious...the fried avocado (well, it's fried, and it's avocado, so super yum) did have a tasty/tangy aioli and pickeled onions that complimented the dish well...the parmesean hasbrowns coulda used more seasoning but had great texture!

Nice Sunday Brunch… but...
It was great. Neat options. Cool room. Friendly service…
Only a couple of "buts." The French fries could've used another 45 secs. in the fryer-rather limp. The parmesan hash browns were either woefully under-parmesaned or just didn't have any. And-the only other gripe was with our Bloody Mary's-which were delicious. However, we ordered one that was supposed to come w/fried okra and an anchovy-stuff olive-neither of which it had, which wouldn't have mattered too much if it weren't the most expensive Bloody on the menu and the accompaniments were why we chose it over other options. We were disappointed.
My Cubano was great. My friend's chilaquiles was yummy. The pastries ALWAYS look really good. Need to pop in and indulge some time.
