Many Greater Palm Springs restaurants are founded on the concept of family, so you’ll find no shortage of kid-friendly eateries and dining spots in the oasis. Take Las Casuelas Terraza in downtown Palm Springs, for example; the restaurant has been serving family recipes, like Grandma Maria Fajardo's creamy guacamole, for four generations. And if you wander inside Brandini Toffee, a local family-owned sweet shop once featured on Oprah’s O List, you may even find one of the original founders working behind the counter or greeting customers.
Family-Friendly Restaurants in Greater Palm Springs
For a fun dining experience for the whole family, stop in at The Café at Shields, where you can enjoy traditional breakfast favorites and light lunches on the quaint outdoor patio before ordering one of their famous date shakes to go, or watch the kids’ eyes fill with wonder as a skilled teppan chef slices and dices at Kobe Japanese Steakhouse. And Acqua California Bistro, a colorful waterfront restaurant located at The River, a dining and entertainment district, will win the little ones over with their hand-spun cotton candy dessert.
