Wilma and Frieda’s Café

With two fantastic restaurants in operation, Wilma and Frieda’s Café in Palm Springs is self-described as comfort food with a diverse flair that takes childhood classics and revamps them for more refined palates. Wherever you’re staying with us, you’ll find that both locations are in centrally located, popular districts—downtown in Palm Springs and El Paseo shopping district in Palm Desert.

Delicious Dishes That Have All of California Buzzing

Only open since 2013, Wilma and Frieda’s Café in Palm Springs has already been featured in LA Times, USA Today, and of course, Palm Springs Life. It was even on an episode of Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives! It’s truly a labor of love for the owners, who named the café after their grandmothers.

Both locations boast a breakfast menu, a weekday brunch menu and a weekend menu with some exclusive items. At either restaurant, any day of the week, you can find specialties like the Churro Waffle, a mouth-watering waffle crusted with cinnamon sugar and finished with a Madagascar vanilla crème anglaise. On the weekday brunch and weekend menu you can select from a variety of salads, melts, burgers, sandwiches, such as the Roasted Chicken and Crispy Mustard Bacon Sandwich, which is topped with Dijon mustard bacon slices and dressed with tomato, lettuce, and pickled onion with a smear of garlic aioli. It’s one of the best coffee shops in Palm Springs.

For diners staying in Palm Springs or willing to make a drive, the dinner menu is exclusive to the downtown location and runs from 5:30 PM to 9 PM on Thursday-Saturday nights. For starters, order the Corn-Chorizo Hush Puppies, a southern favorite with a southwestern twist. They’re stuffed with queso fresco, corn, cilantro, and of course, chorizo. When you progress to entrees, you’ll find that there’s varieties with every kind of protein, including Wilma’s Chicken and Waffles, which comes with a spicy maple syrup that’ll linger on your taste buds in the best way possible.

The Palm Desert location is open from 8 AM to 2 PM daily, and the Palm Springs location is open 8 AM to 3 PM Sunday-Wednesday, and until 9 PM Thursday-Saturday.
