Description: 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.

“Best restaurant we went to all vacation. We went back 3 times!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

The food is amazing. The owners and staff are very friendly, but not overbearing. We spent a month in Italy and this is still one of the best places to eat. The food is very european. Much different. Definitely worth the visit. I sure wish we had this where we live!

“Fresh, Flavorful, and Friendly”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

Don't miss going here- what a great spot for an afternoon coffee and special pastry! I had some lunch-the pesto and brocoli salad- wonderful. The clean, and fresh atmosphere and cafe style seating- the service was friendly. Just a nice stop for morning, lunch or late afternoon!

“Clementine Gourmet Marketplace and Cafe deserves to be # 1 in Palm Desert”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013 via mobile

Clementine Gourmet Marketplace and Cafe is truly a must stop if you are in the Palm Desert area. Excellent food, pleasant attentive service in a classy decor. The owners are right there, involved in what's happening right now. You won't find a better place for either a lunch, a late afternoon small plate or a better selection of salads and sides for a takeout.
