In 1933, Joe Chiriaco opened a gas station and general store on the newly-constructed U.S. Route 60 highway. Since then, the area now known as Chiriaco Summit has grown to include an airport, a museum dedicated to General Patton, and the Chiriaco Summit Coffee Shop. This family-friendly diner offers a welcome rest stop for travelers journeying through the desert with friendly service and some of the best food in California.

In addition to great coffee and atmosphere, the Chiriaco Summit Coffee Shop also offers a variety of breakfast items on their consistently-updated menu. The burgers at this casual dining restaurant are especially delicious, earning them a reputation far and wide as the best place for locals and visitors to stop and grab a meal. For variety, they offer daily specials of home-cooked dishes made from the freshest ingredients, and have a refreshing selection of ice cream and frozen drinks to help diners fight off the summer heat.

The staff at the Chiriaco Summit Coffee Shop knows that nothing helps cut the stress of a long trip like good food and attentive service. Taking care of travelers at this restaurant is more than just a business – it's a way of life. For more than 80 years, the Chiriaco family has offered travelers on U.S. 60 an oasis of comfort, good food, and a cheerful attitude.
