Way back in the day, I was a defense contractor and one of my projects was located in Twentynine Palms, California. At that time I was vegetarian, and we didn’t have fancy apps like Happy Cow to show us the way. We had to ask people.
One person told me way back then about a place in Joshua Tree (JT) called Crossroads Cafe. From that moment on in 2005, I would drive each morning from 29P to JT for their delicious espresso and vegetarian breakfast.
