We've spent so much of our time in Palm Springs this past year, and while I've absolutely loved discovering all the famous, landmark spots, one thing I've loved even more is carving out my own favorites. We spent a good part of last week at several of these places, and I thought it might be fun to share a few of my favorite spots for the perfect weekend in Palm Springs.
Del Marcos Hotel: Smooth tunes by the pool, complimentary brekkie and pool cocktails at 4 pm, impeccable design, friendly staff, and a low-key, boutique atmosphere that makes you immediately feel at home. Not to mention, it's located in the heart of downtown, but just a block over so you still have plenty of privacy. Plus, they've got complimentary bikes you can take out and easily ride to any of the following places to eat...
Jake's: Just down the street from Cheeky's, Jake's has not only the best salad in town (southwest salad - get it and you won't regret it), but it also has a menu's worth of mouth watering options from soft shell crab sandwich to the open-faced, caprese frittata. Tucked just away from the main road, Jake's has small, lovely patio that is perfect for brunching with friends or a romantic lunch.
Reservoir: Attached to the Arrive Hotel, Reservoir offers up some seriously yummy fries and burgers, as well as a pretty delish range of tacos. Plus, Ice Cream & Shop(pe) is right next door, offering up the most delicious home made ice cream (vegan options included) you may ever taste, in a beautifully styled and curated gift shop.
849: If ecclectic glam is something you feel like indulging in while eating a seriously creative menu, 849 is a must-stop. Founded in part by the general manager who made Lulus Bistro such a huge success, this place is quite affordable for the full experience you'll get when visiting. If it's not too hot out, I'd recommend being seated in the patio. It's absolutely breathtaking, especially at night!
