My friends and I had spent a great day shopping and we were bushed. We saw this French restaurant and decided to check it out. We were glad we did. Although offered a wide range of food, we were hungry for beef. Two of us had steak (one topped with Roquefort cheese and one with herbed butter). Both were excellent... More

stopped by for lunch and enjoyed the seafood crepe while my partner had a super veggie burger on a brioche style bun. Took away some delicious sweets. Their display case had some amazing delicacies that would be fantastic for a splashy dessert. Would go back in a heartbeat to try other menu items.

Finally made it here after two years of reading about it as we spend a couple months each winter. When we got here and saw it ranked #4 in Palm Desert we said it was time and were not disappointed. Mrs had what she said was the best salade Nicoise with ahi tuna she has ever had. It was huge,... More

This restaurant opened 7 years ago and we have not missed a year of dining with them. It is a French bistro with excellent food and desserts that are delectable. This time I enjoyed a potato leek soup, sand dabs and Tiramisu. My husband had the wedge salad and filet mignon with blue cheese crumbles. The wine list is not... More

I moved to Palm Springs over a year and a half ago from San Luis Obispo, CA. I eat out five times a week and just love the variety of restaurants available throughout the desert, but The French Corner Cafe and Bakery is my favorite place to eat! The Sand Dabs, Filet of Sole, and Salade Perigord, are my favorite... More

Service was a little slow although the restaurant was almost empty for late breakfast. After breakfast we went to the pastry counter and omg they all looked delicious. and we bought a few. They alone were worth the trip. Something seemed to be missing from the service but I would go back again

If you are anywhere near this place., it would be well worth a side trip. Their desserts are works of art. They have several types of croissants, and though I'm not a foodie, these are exquisite! They melt in your mouth and I don't know that I have ever had a croissant that rivaled these. They have breakfast sandwiches, fromage... More

What a wonderful place for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Never a disappointment. It's always nice to be recognized as a regular customer even though everyone I know has nothing but the best to say

This restaurant is a small operation, but their breakfasts are second to none. I had the eggs benedict and they were an absolute delight. I couple that with a freshly baked chocolate croissant, and I had one of the finest breakfasts in a long time. Anyone can prepare a breakfast, but not everyone can prepare a great breakfast. But that's... More
