I have heard so much about this burger restaurant and we decided to give it a try. Not only do they have burgers but service breakfast items and sides. We decided on burgers and fries and were amazed. I have never seen so many choices for both burgers and fries~~~ I ordered the The Love Hater. (A Garlic Delight)
Served with extra Roasted Garlic, Grilled Onions, Roasted Red Pepper, and Boursin Cheese. Lettuce, Tomatoes, Pickles Chips, and Garlic Aioli on a Sourdough Bun.
with sweet potato fries and it was melt in the mouth delicious, my husband had the The Godfather. (Sourdough Italian)
Served with Crispy Bacon, fresh Avocado, and Mozzarella Cheese. Lettuce, Tomatoes, Pickles Chips, Pesto and Basil Mayo on a Sourdough Bun. and the 50/50
Half order of fresh Homemade Fries and half order of signature Beer Batter Onion Rings. It was a lot of eating but enjoyed every bite. A little on the pricey side but the quality and quantity is worth it. We'll be back!!!

Purple Room Supper Club

Purple Room Supper Club is a fun, intimate and friendly place where the locals, celebrities and travelers hang out. We offer great 3 Course Purple Prix Fixe Menu & Happy Hour Tuesday-Thursday 4-6pm, live entertainment and a full dinner menu. We opened our doors in 1960 inside the Club Trinidad Resort, which was built that same year. This still-popular venue is considered to be one of Palm Springs’ “original” Rat Pack Hangouts – where Frank Sinatra and the “Pack” would bring friends to eat, drink and play! We offer complimentary live entertainment on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays. Our Mainstage, ticketed shows run Fridays, Saturdays and Sunday evenings at 7 pm, with dinner reservations starting at 5:30 pm for 7pm shows. A few seats in the bar area have restricted views of the stage, but we have monitors throughout for easier viewing. For those guests who prefer not to stay for a ticketed show, we suggest dinner reservations prior to 5 pm. Yes, we’re famous for celebrity sightings – you never know who will be at the Purple Room; so we kindly ask that you allow our guests to enjoy themselves by respecting their privacy! Remember, what happens at The Purple Room STAYS at The Purple Room. It’s where Palm Springs Plays! Please let us know if you have questions; we look forward to your visit!

We went on a Thursday night for the Jazz Show with Michael Holmes. It was so good!!! The ambience is amazing....love the glitter ceiling. Staff was super nice and food was delicious. I'm still dreaming of the lobster and shrimp linguine and blue cheese wedge salad. Will definitely go back when in Palm Springs.

I was invited to a 10:30 tour of Brandini Toffee. Paul, a fantastic guide who knows the background of the company, leads tours Monday - Friday. I didn't expect to be amazed at the story of its founding, and the absolutely fantastic products used to make everything, and the quality standards throughout the business. Brandon Weimer first started making toffee at 12 years old. Then, he and Leah Post needed to raise money for a trip to Italy in their sophomore year of high school, and they were astounded at how fast their delicious toffee sold, and that they raised more than they needed to pay their share of their trip (their parents paid for half and they had to pay for the other half). Not the usual story of the beginning of a business--right?

Today their clients include Ralphs Grocery Stores, Costco, Whole Foods, their outlets, on-line, and stores worldwide. The cleanliness of the manufacturing facility shows quality perfection standards. The products used in producing the products are top quality. There is real butter--no oil substitues--, yummy chocolate, and wonderful popcorn with several types of toffee and other things added so that there are several popcorn varieties. The popcorn is made in a machine, but basically, this is a hands-on operation and definitely there are no robots...just hardworking employees. Join the well known stars like Oprah and Martha Stewart who have the products on their "A" lists. You can join the "frequent shopper" list to get points, and rewards.

Once you try the products, you will never want to stop enjoying them, and sharing them with family, friends and clients. I usually have a lot of willpower, BUT, not with the Brandini Toffee products. This is an A+ company that is run with high standards, creativity and love to produce the best toffee products available in the world.

The business and store are in Rancho Mirage, and are in the shopping center across from The River on Bob Hope. Lots of free parking, and 10% off after the tour. This is an award winning company. After our tour, Brandon came to meet us--very unique and wonderful to have the boss come to meet the tourists.

Our friends from Canada who were visiting the desert took us here. The Schnitzel is authentic and tasty. The portions are very large. The wine is very reasonably priced. The service is fantastic.
I have had my fill of schnitzel lately so I opted for the canneloni, which is a terrific meal of ricotta and spinach. Delicious!

We had a truly wonderful meal, an$D intend to introduce some other friends here next week.
