Had heard from numerous people about the great food at Spencer's. Went this morning for breakfast and we were both very impressed. Very good coffee, perfect eggs bendedict and the BEST hash browns. Service was excellent. Can't wait to try dinner next time we go.

This is a great old restaurant in the famous old Palm Springs Tennis Club. The service is always impeccable, the food is great and the setting is Old Palm Springs at its best.

Food is always very good and the atmosphere is wonderful. Dined there 6 times and never disappointed. Top rated for good reason. They must have good training for staff because service is first rate.
