We loved, loved, loved our L’Atelier Cafe lunch. The quiche Lorraine and the croque village were both amazingly delicious! The eclairs and macaroons for dessert were delish. We would definitely recommend L’Atelier Cafe if you want an authentic French meal in Palm Springs.

Excellent, excellent, excellent. My wife had the Quiche Lorraine and I had the Le Croque Madame. They were both delicious. The pain de chocolat was just perfect: light and flaky with great chocolate. We would definitely return on our next trip to Palm Springs.
