Wilma and Frieda’s: They have an amazing breakfast menu from classics to Blackberry French Toast, Churro Waffles and a Short Rib Benedict. You really can't go wrong with anything - and don't forever to get the house made Blueberry Pop Tart to go! :) You can find them in both Palm Desert and Palm Springs.
Little Bar: This is the coolest place to grab a drink along with some amazing bar food. I highly recommend the Fried Chicken Sandwich, Buffalo Cauliflower Bites and the Tater tots. They also serve one of my favorite margaritas, The Tamarindo Margarita.
Shabu Shabu Zen: We are big fans of Shabu Shabu - this place is so good and the staff is amazing. The Washu beef with Miso Broth is my fave. My tip: make a reservation because they are always booked.
Bill’s Pizza: To say we love pizza is a huge understatement. Our family lives for pizza!! Although nothing will ever replace our love for our NYC slices, Bills is a great pizza spot. It's a pizza institution in the desert, with multiple locations. They offer some really unique options - our favorites being the Bill’s Favorite and Carol’s White Pizza.
Dragon Sushi: We get this to-go all the time. It's classic sushi and it's always fresh and delicious.
The Real Italian Deli: This place is as good as any East Coast Deli - super old school and authentic. They make all their own pastas and their sandwiches are amazing. Our favorites are the Turkey Pesto and the Combo. This is a must-eat when you're out there! They also have two locations.
Chef Tanya’s Kitchen: We recently discovered this little Vegan gem. Lots of great salads and sandwiches. My favorite is the Coachella Forever Salad.
