These days, with all of us preferring outdoor dining, many local Palm Springs restaurants have elevated and expanded their patios.  Enjoying meals outside has always been a highlight of a Palm Springs trip, and now it’s better and safer than ever!  And as many parts of the country brace for cold and wet weather, temperatures in Palm Springs are approaching perfection.  Just right for enjoying a meal outside!

Here’s a few of our favorite outdoor spots:

Eight4Nine – One of the most popular restaurants in Palm Springs, Eight4Nine also boasts one of the city’s largest outdoor seating areas.  Its extensive menu of California cuisine consistently offers up many delicious choices to consider.

Felipe’s – Terrific local Mexican place - not fancy, but made with love! Large patio and great service.

Jake’s - A local favorite, Jake’s serves terrific California Cuisine around a small courtyard patio. Be sure to save room for dessert, they’re some of the most decadent in town!
