Walking into Ricochet is like walking into your mother’s Kitchen. It’s small, only three tables inside and two picnic tables out back. Located in the town of Joshua tree, it’s decorated with grandma’s apron’s and an assortment of forties kitsch. The service is friendly, the food is homemade and consistently good. Fare ranges from hearty vegetable soups to tamales, tacos and eggs, roasted chicken and a mustard encrusted salmon. The date shake is to die for and there is always a selection of freshly made gluten free muffins for breakfast. The espresso is rated the best in the area by locals.

This is comfort food at it’s best. Since everything is made fresh and there is often only one person working at a time, don’t come here if you’re in a rush. This is a place to eat good food and relax before heading into the national park or to a music festival.
