PAPPY AND HARRIET'S
Now-legendary Pioneertown music venue Pappy & Harriet's began as the “cantina” set for numerous western films in the 1940's and 50's. In 1972, Harriet’s mother, Francis Aleba, and her husband, John, purchased the building and opened “The Cantina”, an outlaw biker burrito bar. In 1982, Harriet and her husband, Claude “Pappy” Allen, opened “Pappy & Harriet’s Pioneertown Palace”. Robyn Celia and Linda Krantz bought Pappy's in 2003 well after Pappy passed away and brought it back to its glory days. You can feel all this history and more while sitting at the bar eating great food and listening to some of the best music in the world every night of the week.
KITCHEN IN THE DESERT
A modern twist on Caribbean Classics, and Caribbean twists on comfort food favorties, their food might be informed by tradition, but it’s never defined by it. Everything from the tortillas to jerk chicken and hot sauce to pickles is made in house. Located in 29 Palms.
Coffee, tasty breakfast and lunch (with Vegan options!), and beer and wine to top it all off! Live music many evenings. Open Daily 7am - 7pm • 55844 Twentynine Palms Highway, Yucca Valley, CA
C&S COFFEE SHOP
And old tradition for breakfast- a greasy spoon with turquoise colored booths and friendly servers. We heard the biscuits and gravy are a pretty big hit.
Japanese grill, sushi, and poke bar. In an unexpected location at the Travel Lodge Hotel. Trust us... it's good.
Espresso and beer/wine make it the perfect spot day to night! Crossroads is certainly a popular breakfast spot for locals. Vegan and gluten/grain free options available.
