Went here during the wildflower "super bloom". We got to Borrego early & checked out an art fair. One of the vendors suggested Kendall's for breakfast. It's tucked away in "the mall", a very small shopping plaza. We had a 15-20 minute wait for a...More

Are you guys concerned about waitresses handling dirty dishes and then cash, then handling your toast without washing??? This is wrong, especially for elderly snowbirds who may contract illness.

Waitress handles toast, all of them, all of them handle cash and dirty dishes. Saturday there was no hot water or soap. Cook ate at counter, walked in kitchen back to work without washing.
