Good menu, good prices great service, menu has good variety! The dates on some items are a rare treat! This is a place the locals visit!
Normally our Desert Brunch-Around Group meet in member's homes for a monthly brunch but this month we decided to 'treat' ourselves ... Shield's Date Gardens Cafe was certainly a 'treat'. Our reservations for ten were graciously accepted and our table in the desert's morning sunshine was set up and ready for us. Menus offered both breakfast and lunch so our... More
Stopped by here today on the way to Salton Sea. Watched the 1950 retro movie on the romance and sex life of a date & shared a delicious date shake from the fountain. Made from real vanilla ice cream & date paste. If you are in the desert, go to Indio for a treat. Lots of varieties of dates to... More
I had to talk my friends into going to the date farm, but after arriving, they agreed it was worth the stop. The Date Shakes, are very rich and sweet, highly recommend you try, but you can split (even if you have a coupon for buy one get one). The video was very information and short, was interesting to learn... More
Please see my review of the Shields Date Farm. The restaurant was outstanding. The food was unusual and perfectly prepared and served in a lovely outdoor setting.

We went here for lunch and were very pleasantly surprised. I had their Signature salad and was glad I went for a half rather than full potion because it was huge and so good. The welcome was excellent, the staff friendly and helpful and the food good - what more do you need from a restaurant!
What do you get when you cross a female date tree with a male date tree? The best dates in our hemisphere! Take gift boxes home (and order on line.) Thr date ice cream is yummy too. Don't miss the movie!
The prices are reasonable for what you get. The sandwiches are large and can easily be shared. Add a date shake and you have a good meal. I do not like dates but I tried the shake and was pleasantly surprised at how good it was. It is very thick and a little on the sweet side for my liking.... More
Really good food. Prices medium to high. Service is friendly but can be slow in the high season. Great location attached to their date themed store. Overall a go to spot for a nice outdoor breakfast or lunch.
