Great breakfast spot in rancho mirage. Owners are friendly but service is lacking a little. I waited for 10 minutes at counter to pay and 2 people were served ahead of me even though I was there first. Hash was great. Iced tea was good. Definitely worth a visit.

We were staying around the corner from here for 5 days. We came here for breakfast on day 2 and returned every day after that! The food was amazing and having been to Paris and throughout France it felt like we were there again! Each morning our family tried something new and loved all the dishes. The simple baguette with...

I have been coming to this bakery for many years. I came in on July 3. 2016 at 11:00am. The line of the small bakery was out the door and about a twenty minute wait. On a holiday weekend that is to be expected. But, wouldn't you think they would prepare for the expected crowd? They didn't. They were out... More

Had a nice light salad. All items were fresh and the dish was presented in an appetizing way. Service was very good. Everyone enjoyed their selection.

I ordered through LA Bite. I had the filet w/ blue cheese and some kind of sauce, accompanied by au gratin potatoes and a veggie ~$28. The filet was cooked perfectly, but the blue cheese wasn't melted, and it didn't even taste like blue cheese. It was tasteless, as was the sauce. The potatoes were disappointing, as I normally love... More

One year ago, this reviewer wrote a lengthy review of this small restaurant/bistro. A return visit verified the previous Five star rating. For our party, the food is just what one would expect from a French bistro. This time one of our party had a ham and cheese crepe, with a fried egg on top, and a small salad. Another... More

Have had lunch twice this past week and intend to go back again and again. They have a good French menu and the prices are very reasonable for the quality. I had been there before and always enjoyed the food, but only recently rediscovered it. They serve a great Salad Nicoise (?) which is what the good French restaurants in... More

We had breakfast at the French Corner Cafe. Quality food and a nice menu selection. Good spot for families, couples or a group. Good value if you're trying to escape your overpriced hotel restaurant.

We discovered it by accident and now can't keep away. Great for breakfast and lunch, or just Cafe Au Lait. Wonderful patisserie for a treat or dessert. Service is warm and friendly.

We stopped for a quick lunch, first time in a French Café. It is in a strange location at the entrance to a strip mall on a busy highway. However we had been to Bed, Bath and Beyond and it was noon so we stopped. The service was moderately slow but the food was delicious. We each had the "lunch... More
