Been familiar with this place for many years and watched it deteriorate over the years. Interior space is now much smaller, tiny room to watch the very outdated film about dates. Pleasing aspect was the lunch. Salads and sandwiches are plentiful. Bought one tuna sandwich that they split into two portions including the small salad and an extra bag of... More

We stopped in here for lunch on our way back from a visit to the Salton Sea; to be honest, we were expecting it to be a quick pit stop for what would likely be mediocre food. How wrong we were, and how pleased was I to be so wrong! The food was delicious, the date shakes were really so... More

If you drive through this area of the Coachella valley you will see thousands of date palms. This little shop has an extraordinary selection of various dates along with other treats from the area including a yummy lime jam among many other offerings.Consider a date shake on a hot day. And buy some dates. The medijool dates are amazing! After... More

Whenever we're in the area, we ALWAYS make a point of having lunch at Oasis! The bacon-date-cheeseburger is out of this world, as odd as it sounds. This place is still out in the middle of nowhere, unlike the other Date Farm in the area. Beautiful date palm groves surrounding; they have a huge grassy area with picnic tables to... More

Stopped in around noon on Thursday February 2nd. Three young ladies behind the counter who were more interested in talking about personal matters than doing anything else, including showing a friendly professional attitude. The store was dirty but wouldn't have taken much to fix. Ordered a date shake, it was poorly made. Not mixed long enough or properly. Appeared to... More

Driving along Highway 111, we could've stopped at a date farm in Indio, but we opted to go a lot farther to Oasis based on their website and reviews we'd read. It turned out to be a bad choice. There was no welcome by the two girls manning the café, and no guidance of what to do or see. We... More

It's one of the last date shops in the Coachella Valley and its a great place. They sample about 15 varieties of dates that are grown in the area, some that you will not see elsewhere. We had date shakes which were really good and bought a box of dates. I recommend this place highly

Searching for the original Date shake.. Its a yummy milk shake. The location is very cute has a lot of dates to sample. Make sure you have enough space to take some home. I regret that could not take any as we were on bicycles.
