Incredible food and service. I have been here several times and this is a little french patisserie and bistro in Palm Desert. The pastries are awesome and the crepes are wonderful. I can also recommend the French Onion Soup and the Mussels

Our breakfast was simply excellent! My healthy omelette of salmon, shallots, and egg whites was served with a cup of delicious mixed fruit. We will return on a regular basis.

Stopped in here to buy some macarons and stayed for lunch. Attentive service and excellent quiche and salad. Watching what others ordered and checking out the pastry case had me add this to my must visit again list.
