We went for lunch and the place was packed which is always a good sign. We had sandwiches and excellent homemade chips which hit the spot. Friendly staff and delicious desserts!

My husband and I went to Clementines for breakfast. The moment we walked in we were greeted with smiles from everyone. One side is a deli of appetizing take out with all sorts of salads and light meals. The other side was set with cafe tables where we sat for breakfast. The entire cafe was immaculate and had comfortable seating.... More

Came here originally to check out the "gourmet marketplace" part of this cafe. It was like stepping into a bit of the French countryside. There were Provencal tablecloths, tea towels, jams, spices,etc. The pastry counter looked just like one of those French pastry shops that leave you wishing you could taste about ten things. It was so inviting we decided... More

We came upon this café and decided to try it for breakfast. We walked in to a warm and friendly environment and were seated at a high top so we could survey our surroundings. When I got up to check out the deli, an employee came over to explain their pasta bar, their chefs, etc. And highly recommended the quiche.... More

We were welcomed to Clementine's by Amanda and she made us feel so comfortable - in a relax, and enjoy yourselves way. Whilst walking to the table I couldn't help but notice the pastries and desserts that were available they actually looked to good too eat but please don't be fooled by the attention to detail and precision that has...

There really is no other place like Clementine that I know of - certainly not this side of the Rockies. The desert is indeed fortunate to have Clementine call it home. The food is an eclectic mix drawing heavily on the western Mediterranean. Now I know I'm risking deportation, but I have to say it's such a welcome break from... More

I'm sitting in Clementine, sipping my excellent coffee and of course, who could resist a pastry from the patisserie. I'm thinking about what I might order for lunch - it's a lovely choice - not overwhelming, and way more interesting than the usual chain fodder. I close my eyes, my mind starts to drift. (It seem to do that a... More

Found Clementine while looking for another breakfast place in the same complex. Clementine's menu looked deceivingly limited with a brunch and lunch items. If we had more time in Palm Desert, I would love to eat through the menu. There were three in our party. One had the flat bread brunch with smoked salmon and eggs, the other, naked eggs... More

Recommended as a breakfast or lunch spot my mother and I stopped in for lunch. Our first impression was how loud it is. Not a place for low-key conversation by any means. Restaurant is attractive with dining area, pastries to purchase and deli display offerings to also purchase. They also have a shopping section with goods from different places in... More
