6 American (except for #5) Restaurants To Try in Palm Springs
1). The Sandwich Spot
Renowned as one of the greatest sandwich/sub joints in Palm Springs, The Sandwich Spot offers a casual dining environment for sandwich lovers of all ages. Even though The Sandwich Spot has locations throughout California, there are only three places to grab these popular sandwiches in Southern California. So unless you want to trek to Encinitas or Simi Valley, your best bet is to enjoy a delicious Grand Slam, Gene Autry, or Dreamkiller right here in Palm Springs.
2). Sherman’s Deli and Bakery
Sherman’s is a comfy, old school family style diner. Whether you go for sweet or savory, everything on the menu is hearty and tasty. With some of the friendliest staff in the Coachella Valley, your whole family will have a good time, and you can relax and let the kids be kids. Pro tip: leaving room for dessert is a must!
3). Cheeky’s Palm Springs
Sunday Funday is taken care of at Cheeky’s. This place is a hit with the brunch crowd, so it can get busy on weekends, but it’s completely worth it–trust us. Their menu changes weekly, so even locals stay excited about the eclectic American cuisine (bacon remains an evergreen favorite). Most of the food is organic, locally sourced, fresh squeezed, and so on. Oh, and they’ve got the best mimosas you’ve ever had.
4). Workshop Kitchen + Bar
Workshop Kitchen + Bar is easily one of the trendiest restaurants in Palm Springs, and is perfect for couples or large groups. As the name implies, the establishment offers dining as well as a small, back of the house bar with novelty and classic cocktails. Tucked away in a courtyard that is removed from the street, Workshop offers outdoor seating for guests who want to enjoy the desert’s crisp night sky. But wait until you get inside–neutral minimalism, boastful industrial construction, and floor to ceiling booths make this restaurant one of the most uniquely designed locations we’ve ever seen. Even the serving staff (which is beyond excellent, btw) is outfitted in what appears to be designer unisex workshop overalls. Always, always ask about their specials.
5). Le Vallauris
Ideal for special occasions, Le Vallauris is easily the best French restaurant in Palm Springs. The menu consists of traditional French fare prepared by highly trained chefs, and the classically designed dining room and outdoor patio add to the establishment’s elegance. The impressive wine and cocktail lists aren’t bad, either. We love Le Vallauris for romantic evenings, anniversaries, and group celebrations.
New American cuisine, wood-fired pizza, and craft cocktails combine with second floor patio seating to make this restaurant an excellent choice for casual yet stylish dining. Matchbox’s mid-range price point is suitable for groups of all sizes looking to share plates of delicious food and great conversation while enjoying peaceful views of Palm Canyon Drive.
