On our way out of Palm Springs heading home, we stopped at L'Atelier Cafe for brunch on Sunday. We sat at a small table on the sidewalk in front of the Cafe. The waiters were helpful in selecting our food, which was delivered to us from inside. The French choices from Salad Nicoise to Croque Madam were absolutely authentic and... More

My husband and I had breakfast at L'Atelier Cafe after reading the reviews here and we enjoyed it tremendously. Rob had the Eggs Benedict served on a croissant, and I had the French quiche Provencal. Both were delicious, and so was the rich roasted coffee. We arrived as they were opening, and since seating is limited, we were happy to... More

A very cool little place in the heart of Palm Springs, this place is just terrific for breakfast. The quiches are really, really good, the coffee is really, really good, and our sinful addition of a little coconut cake (a very nice French version) was equally tasty. 5 seats at the bar, tables for about 15-20 inside and 10 or...

We had lunch at L'Atelier a couple days ago. We discovered it online when we were searching for a quaint, unique restaurant for lunch. There were four of us and we truly enjoyed ourselves. The food was excellent. The staff, particularly the owner, was wonderful. It was just a very pleasurable, relaxing and great experience.

This little café was the high point of our stay in PS. Scrambled eggs buttery and soft, flavorful omelets, buttery coconut cake with lemon curd, rustic quiches, pear salad, pastries, all very reasonable and tasty. Varied menu that changes each week to highlight fresh seasonal ingredients. We sat outside in the beautiful weather. Portions are modest as is the price.... More

Tucked away in a small corner of La Plaza street in Palm Springs is this breakfast/lunch eatery that is a true find. We were in Palm Springs for nine days and ate four breakfasts and two lunches here during that time. The Parisian Scrambled Eggs were the best scrambled eggs I have had in a long time. Moist and flavorable... More

After about two weeks visiting the US we were craving a decent European sandwich and found it here! Good service, excellent food, and not too expensive either.

Charlotte and her husband have opened a very small cafe in downtown Palm Springs that serves phenomenal crepes, quiches, pasties and delicious breakfast and lunch choices. The staff is professional and so cordial. It's a very welcoming place to dine. I return often because the food and service is outstanding. I eat out 8-12 times a week so I choose... More

L'Atelier Cafe is the Best! My wife and I come here every time we visit Palm Springs. Truth be told we eat here at least 2 times during our short visits because the food is authentic, it's fresh, and they are masters of creating dishes where the flavors meld together perfectly. The ambiance is welcoming and cozy so you always... More
