Clementine Gourmet Marketplace & Cafe is a beautiful homage to the bright marketplaces of "The Countries of the Sun"- Italy, France, Spain, Morocco, and other countries along the Mediterranean. We are pleased to offer a wide array of take-home deli items, delicate desserts, dine-in breakfast and lunch options, and fabulously unique gifts. Whether you are looking to bring home an effortless dinner, or stop in for a lunch with friends, Clementine has something for you. We greet our guests as family, and share a passion for authentic European foods, fine gourmet gifts, and delightful treats. Anyone who enters Clementine arrives a stranger and leaves a friend; our success hinges on our authenticity, affordability, and gracious hospitality.

Good Place

The restaurant is very popular. The food is well prepared and the owners are very nice. The food seems a bit costly to me and they have limited side orders at lunch. That said, it is always tasty. The restaurant is very well designed and always neat and organized. Not eating desserts right now... read more

You need to go looking for this spot as it is not on the main drag, so to speak. It is tucked back in a bit but definitely worth looking for it. Nicely appointed dining space and bar that serves awesome food with a french flair. You won't be disappointed.

Healthy or not, you have your choice. Either way, the food is tasty and fresh. Not that easy to find but worth the look. We had lunch and really enjoyed it

My friend Jen was raving about this place all weekend as she's been there a few times before and so we decided to grab some brunch on our way back to the coast on Sunday. Cute little place as soon as you walk in, nice spread of tables so you don't feel like you're on top of each other (a... More

Excellent place for a healthy lunch salad. My wife and I went there based on the Trip Advisor review and we were pleased on all accounts. Salads are fresh and delicious and I gotta say, possibly the best coffee I've had in ages.

Fantastic French food at reasonable prices, especially if you go during Happy Hour. We ordered bacon wrapped scallops. Outstanding flavor!! Be sure to save room for dessert, too. Best dessert collection made from REAL ingredients that I've seen in years!!

We decided to have breakfast here after reading many great reviews on Yelp. It was a Sunday, late morning, and the place was pretty crowded. We were seated fairly quickly. The meal was just OK, nothing really memorable; we were a little disappointed based on the good reviews we had read.

This place has it all! All day happy hour at the Bar, Cute Retail with must-haves, a Patisserie, Deli, Fresh Salads, Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner and Weekend Brunch with these amazing Apple Fritters!!! Summer Hours = closed T/W, calling for hours is the best way to know for sure. Bon Appetit.

Our waiter from Pacifica (awesome restaurant) sent us here for breakfast. The bakery and the entrees were first rate. This is not your typical eggs and bacon breakfast. Very inventive and one of my favorite breakfasts of 2015! Very good service also.

Love this chic little place. We've gone twice now. It was recommended as a lunch spot by the concierge at La Quinta Resort. Great both times. Wish we had a Clementine's in LA! Great salads, sandwiches, drinks (even cocktails!) and amazing baked-in-house pastries and coffee. We will be back every time we visit the desert. The only reason I don't... More
