Kipferl

A personal favourite of ours, Kipferl.

FOOD: So it’s Viennese. So expect a dedicated sausage menu, AWESOME breakfast options & general hearty (meat & carbs) filled meals.

SERVICE: Honestly, the best. They’re friendly, whether you’re popping out a laptop & ordering a coffee or hitting their sausage menu hard, they’re always so lovely & welcoming.

PRICE: For a meal, drink & slice of cake; you’ll be looking at around £15

PERFECT FOR: Casual breakfasts/lunches, meetings & coffee breaks

EXTRAS: If you like sausages & cheese, get the Kaesekrainer & thank us later.

The Colony Bar/Grill at The Beaumont is pretty perfect breakfast spot; my personal favourite? The brûlée’d Grapefruit.

extra thoughts..
SERVICE: not bad.. not great but not bad.
PRICE: For something from the cold menu and a drink you’re looking at around £12 & for a hearty meal and drink, around £25, so not the cheapest of places.
PERFECT FOR: Slightly formal breakfast or meeting.

On a roasting Thursday afternoon in July, my sister & I trekked from the Avalon Hotel to the Palm Springs Art Museum, yes, you might be googling it now and be thinking “guys, it’s literally a 10 minute walk” and yes, you would be correct, but damn the high summer sun was unforgiving that day. During our “journey”, I felt like we were adventurers of some kind, about to consume our last drop of water, exploring the Australian outback. Dramatics aside, we arrived and were greeted by grand parallel staircases and made our way into the cool air filled, open space.

I wouldn’t say we are museum connoisseurs, we’re the kinds of people who stumble from exhibition to exhibition, hoping to find pieces that inspire us, typically if we’re not into the first couple of pieces, we whiz through until we find something a little more..to our taste.

Personally, I found myself leaning towards pieces from Faig Ahmed (the melting carpet) & Manuel Felguerez (the twisting copper sculpture). I’m no art critic but I’m pretty sure my preferences couldn’t have been any more opposite but hey, you like what you like? 🤷🏾‍♀️

The wild flower, cacti filled outdoor area was probably my favourite part of the whole museum. A variety of sculptures and water features also lived within these concrete walls and though everything was encased in so much stone, there was still something about the sculpture garden that felt so refreshing, like you could spend the day trying to decipher Baudelaire poems whilst eating ice-cream sandwiches; ..yeah that was oddly specific, I know, but you get the picture, the garden had a calm like quality to it.

If when you’re in town & want to save some money, head there late afternoon (4pm-8pm) on a Thursday, like we did, as admission is free.

Address: 101 Museum Drive, Palm Springs, CA, 92262
Opening Details: Sun, Mon, Tue, Fri, Sat 10 a.m. – 5 p.m; Thu ,12-8 p.m.; free 4-8 p.m; Wed, Closed

We have all been there, our weather app says sunny and warm and we walk outside only to be caught in a sudden down pour and chilling temperatures. Never let this happen again when you download the Dark Sky app, the most accurate source of local weather information you will probably ever encounter. This app can detect what the weather is like from exactly where you are standing at any given moment. If only it could promise sunshine and rainbows 24/7 too.
