“Do not miss this!”
Reviewed April 16, 2011

We drove straight to this place as we rolled into Palm Springs, based on reviews in Trip Advisor. The decor invites you to relax and enjoy. The owner at the counter was helpful and warm, the service quick and efficient. The menu was truely diverse, something for everyone. My daughter and I chose to split the curry special of the day (sorry can't remember the exact name) and ordered a side house salad also. The curry stew was so wonderful, warm and just spicy enough, rice and a saute of mixed greens rounded out the dish perfectly. The salad was very nice, the ginger dressing fabulous. The portions were perfect for us to split. Wonderful way to start a vacation in Palm Springs.

“Oh-so-amazing! Food is fantastic!”
Reviewed October 26, 2010

I've been vegetarian most of my life, and this is the best vegan/vegetarian food I've ever eaten in a cafe. The flavors are so mouth-wateringly delicious, especially the vegan spinach lasagna (to die for!), Indonesian salad with tempeh (oh so good!), lavendar lemonade and the brownies. The tastes are so rich & detailed, but it's healthy fare! Amazing!! The prices are certainly reasonable for all the care & top-quality ingredients they use, and the cafe atmosphere is inviting & warm, not to mention tastefully decorated. I've only been here once, but I boldly recommend it as a must-go-to, if you're vegan or vegetarian, or even if you simply love spectacular food. The service is friendly, the food is crazily amazing, and you'd impress anyone by taking them here for the first time. Love, love, love it! If anyone gives this place a bad review, they obviously haven't asked the owner for his recommendations on the menu. There is something for every palate!

“Gluten Free!! Yeah!”
Reviewed September 26, 2010

An oasis in the desert for those with food allergies- gluten free and very good! Located in strip shopping center, south of the downtown area, but easy to find.

We had gluten free club sandwich and regular tuna burger. Very fresh and tasty. Took leftovers to the hotel for dinner also. They can make most anything gluten free - sandwiches, stir fry etc.

The lavendar lemonade was refreshing!

“One of the Best Places in Palm Springs (and I am not a vegetarian)”
Reviewed September 16, 2010

A friend recently introduced us to Palm Greens and we are hooked! I go there 3 times a week when in the desert. The produce is beyond fresh and very tasty. The best part about eating here is they have something for everyone. From Phad Thai to Shrimp Tacos and yummy desserts. Lots of veggie and vegan options but oh so much more! Great for breakfast, lunch or early dinner. Best Arnold Palmer ever! I cannot recommend this place highly enough.
