One of the first things people notice when they come to Palm Springs is the casual atmosphere. You won't find the constant rush or hustle of the big city here, and that goes for breakfast, too. While plenty of local restaurants offer traditional breakfasts for the early-risers, many swap breakfast menus for brunch experiences on the weekends. Whether you're spending a day in downtown Palm Springs, taking the family to The Living Desert or hitting The Shops on El Paseo, there are plenty of brunch choices to start your day off right. From hearty breakfast fare to upscale French cuisine, Palm Springs offers a brunch that's sure to fit your palette.
If you're starting your day in downtown Palm Springs, you can choose between LULU and Cheeky's, both popular brunch joints on Palm Canyon Drive. Open from 8 a.m. - 2 p.m., brunch is a Cheeky's specialty. The menu rotates weekly to showcase new twists on seasonal ingredients, but the ever-present staple that causes long lines outside this chic white restaurant? The five-piece bacon flight, sure to be the highlight of your brunch. At LULU, you can enjoy a Sunday prix fixe brunch menu with mimosas or bellinis from the ultra-modern dining room.
Outside of Palm Springs, the Grove Artisan Kitchen offers a Sunday brunch buffet with an expanded continental menu and mimosas. If you're planning a day on El Paseo, stop by Cafe des Beaux-Arts for brunch on the patio.
