Hands down the best spot in Palm Springs, bar none. Every morning of my trip, every trip, starts here. The croissants are to die for and the coffee always brings me back to Europe in every sip. And the Brioche? Oui! The staff are the...More

We visited this charming café following the recommendation of a nearby shop owner, and we were not disappointed. Delicious, fresh and flavorful food - especially salads, quiche, pastry and amazing and wonderful strong coffee. Perfect for brunch or lunch.

Food is always consistent and tasty. Croissants are yummy, as is the frencht oast. Coffees are lovely. Grab a baguettes while you are there. We love sitting outside on the terrace.

Good bread, fast service but simply not friendly enough, almost rude. The woman in charge together with a younger lady could not manage to show any kindness. No a single smile to be seen. Luckily the male waiter did his best and compensated for the...More

We have been here once before a couple of years ago and enjoyed the food but this time was perfection. Yes the service is a little slow, but everything is obviously made fresh and we wanted a leisurely lunch. Unless you are on your lunch...More
