Stumbled in on way to park off highway,was very glad I wasn't tempted to go ino a fast-food joint along the way. The biggest breakfast plate I have ever had..good food before you climb the rocks

If you are staying in town and want a bite to eat, this is the spot! The breakfast is fantastic and the portions are huge. Not cheap mind you, but you are in JT and you don't really have options at this point.

I was referred to Crossroads by the folks at the Joshua Tree Inn, and I enjoyed a wonderful dinner. Friendly service and tasty meal.

Just got done with a day of climbing. We were pretty hungry and needed a brew. Recommended by our climbing guide the crossroads Café really hit the spot. Wide variety of options for everybody including healthy options and a bit more savory ones. Definitely recommend it.

Busy in the mornings, but this place is great and a convenient stop before a day in Joshua Tree park. Would surely stop here again the next time I'm in Joshua Tree.

the place is a bit oddly laid out, so not too inviting as you walk in the door, but the tables in the back are nice. We had a great waitress and the burgers were good.
