Louise’s Your La Quinta Diner!

Before making its way to La Quinta, Louise’s Pantry began as a Palm Springs drugstore lunch counter in 1946. Through changing times and a series of owners, it has maintained a reputation as a great place for home-cooked meals.

New owner Chris Paolini subscribes to the theory that “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” While Paolini has maintained the tradition of serving quality comfort food, like any good restaurant owner, he knows you have to be open to change. He has struck a balance by keeping the stick-to-your-ribs classics while adding new flavors for his guests.

In addition to classic sandwich favorites such as the Reuben, corned beef, egg salad and French dip, Louise’s now includes chicken Caesar and veggie wraps ($9.99) each rolled in a tomato-basil tortilla.

We arrived around noon, but being a breakfast fan, I opted for the eggs benedict ($11.99) served with country ham and topped with hollandaise sauce, with a side of country potatoes. Create your own omelette ($9.99) or enjoy a steaming hot Belgian waffle topped with whipped butter and warm maple syrup ($6.99). Hearty eaters can choose “Louise’s Breakfast” served with two eggs, hash browns, toast and homemade jam ($6.99).

If it’s been a while since you’ve had an exceptional burger, well, wait no longer. Louise’s burgers are made with -pound fresh ground beef and served on a sesame bun. The classic pantry burger ($10.99) is smothered with homemade chili, a pile of cheddar cheese and onions, if you so desire.

Vegetarians can feast on the 6-ounce garden burger topped with alfalfa sprouts and tomato ($9.99).

Louise’s has an extensive selection of salads, and servings are generous. The Cobb is overflowing with crispy bacon, egg, avocado and blue cheese ($10.99). Chicken, egg and tuna salads are served on a bed of crispy lettuce with tomato and cucumber.

My husband loves Louise’s and once a month they have a coupon for a buy-one-get-one-free entree in the Desert Sun!
