La Copine (outrageously delish from-scratch farm-to-table; not to be missed)
Pappy & Harriet’s (our #1 favorite music venue / honky tonk, and if you’re eating, go for mesquite ribs)
Natural Sister’s (eggless egg salad sandwich– no really, just try it.)
Joshua Tree Saloon (sweet potato fries, fish tacos)
Crossroads Cafe (JT Coffee, zydaco breakfast)
Desert Solitaire, Edward Abbey, 1988.
