Dine alfresco among the rose gardens at this hotel restaurant, which sources most of its ingredients locally. Try dishes plucked straight out of local gardens, like the roasted pumpkin soup with Cyprus Grove goat cheese.

Once the guesthouse of actor Cary Grant, Copley’s has an adobe-tiled roof, olive trees, and a dining patio with a fire pit. The Spanish theme is reflected inside as well, with wood-plank flooring, mauve walls, and arched doorways.

Locals arrive early to avoid waiting in line for the famous brunch at popular Cheeky's in Palms Springs. The 20-seat restaurant, with an outdoor patio that doubles dining space, serves from a menu that changes weekly.

The fresh-made multigrain pancakes and cheddar-jack omelettes are popular with breakfasting climbers.

Drinking alfresco will have you seeing stars in the cabanas. The ambitious cocktail menu includes nine fruit-infused mojitos and a martini with muddled jalapeños (ouch!).
