We went to Palm Springs for our anniversary and stayed next door at the Hyatt. I was looking for a place that had good omelettes and you have a nice view from the deck. They also have nice wines if you go during lunch and great sandwiches.

Our party of 4 intended to eat breakfast at the very popular Cheeky's restaurant but the line was an hour long and inside it was SO LOUD! Instead we walked south and just a block away discovered Cafe Europa. We loved it. First of all, it was upstairs with outdoor seating overlooking the street below so fresh air with a... More

We were so confused. Cafe Europa and Just Tapas. When we went in, we learned that Cafe Europa is their day restaurant, and Just Tapas is their evening restaurant. We loved tapas when we were in Barcelona, so we gave this a shot. It's not like eating in Barcelona, ordering as you go, but the food was excellent. We had... More

They moved to a new location and we didn't notice them for a few days. Wished we would have found them sooner in our trip! They added a full bar and kept the menu the same and the 2nd floor location provides a great view. This place is a sure bet! The French press coffee is the best I've ever... More

We had breakfast again yesterday on Saturday 3/25/17. There were 5 of us. All the food was very good and service was excellent. I had the Chilaquiles, which were good but not great and would probably not have them again. The server was very attentive and did a a great job. We are locals and will be back.

We had always visited as one of our favorite breakfast stops in previous years. We were sad that cafe Europa had moved from the lovely spot they used to have right in the entry to a nice park. The new site is nice with balconies on both sides but we were very disappointed with the decline in food. The amenities... More

As frequent visitors to Palm Springs one of our favourite lunch spots was Cafe Europa. When we looked for it in its old location we thought it had closed. Much to our delight we located it in its new location, on the second floor of Amado and Plam Canyon. We were delighted to find the menu has remained as good... More

Good quality European cafe. Slow service and a little pricey for the quantity but the quality is excellent and the French owners are absolutely adorable. Great place to sip a coffee, grab a bite, and enjoy the downtown atmosphere. If you are lucky you will meet the charming owners. Just don't go in a hurry, this is a European style... More

We were hungry, and it was open, so we took a chance. The service was friendly. The venue is lovely, you sit on the 2nd floor overlooking all the activity on Palm canyon. I had the blt and it was delicious -- it has wasabi mayo which gave it a nice little kick! My guess is that because the restaurant... More

In October of 2016 owner Eric Stolz moved his Cafe Europa, a local eatery with a solid fan base to a second-floor space right on North Palm Canyon Drive. Yes, you read that right: an upstairs location, not normally a successful location for an eatery on a walking street. But the second idea Stolz had, to do his Europa breakfast-lunch... More

Welcome to Cafe Europa! Arguably, the 2nd most sought after restaurant for foodies for breakfast and lunch in the Coachella Valley! Organic omega 3 eggs and a fun, inventive yet accessible menu. Please be patient as we are building our new space with twice the area and oh what a setting- just 2 blocks south of our current location. We will NOT be touching the menus and YES! We will be adding a much requested 2nd restaurant called jusTapas. Still pup friendly and what a view! See you October 1st!
