Everything here that I sampled of my week in Palm Springs was fantastic. I found the café on accident and decided that it was the best breakfast spot as far as location and cost. Definitely recommend visiting here if you want some great food.

This place is tiny. But the food is real, is prepared for you and the service is ideal. We love their omelettes, and of course the pastries are excellent. It doesn't matter if you eat outside at the few tables there or inside at the counter. Stop by for a ham and cheese and you will think you were in... More

The French couple that relocated to Palm Springs after their honeymoon visit have created a cute and delicious French Bistro on the streets of Downtown. Highly recommend for brunch!

The service was very unfriendly. Out of 4 meals, one was good, 3 were poor. To use the restroom one must walk across the highway and ask to use a restroom in a hotel.

Scrambled egg Love!! Perfect little French in downtown Palm Springs. It is small, and be prepared to get to know the people next to you, but the service is great, the food is authentic, delicious and inexpensive.

Delightful cafe just off main strip. Run by friendly French couple with distinctive menu, something different from standard US fare. Croissants are to die for. Went back next day we enjoyed it so much.

Went here for lunch and had a great one. My 7-year old daughter had bacon and eggs and finished all of it. I had the veggie and scrambled egg croissant. My wife had the eggs benedict. Both of us were very happy. At the end of lunch, we had the strawberry and chocolate crepe and it was delicious. Portions are... More

I loved dining at L'Atelier. I had a spinach and mushroom omelet that had a delicious house made aioli on the side. I also had a blueberry crêpe which was just blissful. They also have a nice selection of teas. The owner was very friendly and professional. I think this place is truly a must try. They don't take reservations... More
