Yesterday we made the drive from Santa Monica out to Palm Springs for a little extra heat and relaxation. Most of the day was spent poolside pretending to be in a Mad Men episode. No, really. The whole town is still decorated in a "modernist" theme circa the 1960s. It's pretty cool to see that era preserved.
On our way to our hotel, we checked Yelp for a good suggestion. We were lucky to find a little outside cafe called Cheeky's. Apparently everyone else in Palm Springs had the same idea.We were seated after 20 minutes in a really pleasant garden.
We first ordered fresh pressed blood orange juice to refresh us from the desert heat.
The offerings all sounded amazing, but finally I settled on the Huevos Rancheros.
Martie ordered eggs poached in artichoke heart cups. They were nestled on a bed of creamed kale and topped with hollandaise like a traditional benedict. The artichoke cups were freshly steamed and added a nice change from the traditional English muffin.
The rest of our day didn't involve too much interesting food, so I will update you next on our Saturday brunch in Malibu.
