Bouchee Fine Foods
Restaurant details
Reviewed 22 February 2012

We live in the San Francisco Bay Area and are used to good food. Fresh, locally sourced, lightly prepared, mediterranean inspired. When we travel to places like the Palm Springs area, we are challenged to find food that even begins to meet our standards or our palettes.

We stumbled upon Bouchee fine foods while staying at a nearby resort and ate ALL OUR MEALS there, for the rest of our stay (almost a week!). The food is fresh, gourmet, tasty, contemporary and light. We had the opportunity to sample many of their sandwiches, salads, prepared dishes and desserts over those days, and were never disappointed. All are OUTSTANDING.

We had a little condo at our hotel and did "take out" from Bouchee for most meals, entirely avoiding hotel food (and cost). Bouchee made all the difference in making our time in the Palm Springs area a true delight (along with steady sunsine and 75 degress in December!). This was true for all in our party, which includes our kids ages 13, 15 and 17.

If you want to avoid the endless chain restaurants and gloppy local fare (we did sample a few restaurants before finding Bouchee - and deli counters at upscale supermarkets - all terrible!), stick to Bouchee.

Note that this restaurant has tables but is not "Sit down." It's a cafe type place where you order at a deli case/counter and then sit down to eat, or take out. It's not formal dining, but upscale "take out" /cafe fare. We highly recommend!
