Nice wait staff, friendly and helpful. This is a bakery with all the yummy items you can think of to tantilize your taste buds. This morning, although more crowded than usual from all the StageCoach attendees who have found this gem, we got an outside table with an umbrella so our pooch could sit in comfort. Water bowl for his... More

We never miss this gem when visiting the desert. When living in Palm Desert we would time our shopping to be sure we ate at the French Corner. It is a favorite of the locals and passed over by visitors who don't know about it. Good for us locals!!

That you could find such a fabulous french restsurant at the entrance to a shopping mall in Palm Desert? We stopped in for a quick lunch while shopping. The menu was very appetizing with a variety of hearty and light fare. We had sandwiches,croissants and a large fresh salad. The bakery selection is huge and looks like the same selection... More

We stopped here on a whim for lunch. I ordered the Quiche Lorraine with Sweet Potato Fries. My wife had the lunch special ( half sandwich with cup of soup and small salad) . Both dishes were most enjoyable. Good Service here as well.

Walking into this beautifully decorated interior (booths abound) French brasserie/cafe/bakery is taking a quick trip to Paris...quite an upscale surprise at the Desert Crossing Center where retailers such as Tar-jay rule. Tempting treats abound in the mouth-watering cases that feature many smaller/sensibly portioned and bursting with delicious flavor treats. The macarons are authentic as are the many croissant variations. I... More

I love frog's legs and they are very hard to find on a menu. I ordered two appetizer portions to take home and they were delicious. This is a lovely café that offers wine and beer. They have pastries that look like works of art and also are sooo yummy. Small and large ones, lemon meringue, mango, raspberry, chocolate. We... More
