Our Story

“Off the beaten path and tucked away behind the trees, John Henry’s Café has been a favorite of Palm Springs locals and in-the-know visitors for over twenty-five years.  Originally opened by the restaurant’s namesake chef John Laslo and his partner Angelo, John Henry’s was built on the simple notion that good food and good service could be had at a good price – and that idea continues to serve as our north star. The original owners passed the torch to current owners Alfredo and Luis about five years ago.  Retaining nearly all of the original staff and most notably, the lead chefs, Luis and Alfredo have striven to ensure that everyone who visits John Henry’s has a wonderful meal and magical experience.  Our clients are like family (and our families are often clients!) and we hope to be welcoming guest old and new for many more years to come!”
