In a town famous for glamour and glitz, sometimes all you want is a simple, delicious meal. For 28 years, locals have made one place the unofficial king of breakfast in Palm Springs: Rick’s Restaurant and Bakery. Utilizing his love of cooking and his Cuban American style, Rick’s family-run business prides itself on using only the finest and freshest ingredients to churn out delicious home-cooked meals made from scratch. From soft, pillowy, delectable cinnamon rolls fresh out of the oven every morning to hearty soups chock full of fresh local ingredients to full breakfasts and savory lunches, Rick’s is the spot to eat like a king on a pauper’s budget.
Fresh and Friendly at Rick’s Restaurant and Bakery
Greeting the sun and his customers every morning with a smile, breakfast at Rick’s is not to be missed. All of your favorites are served up fresh and hot, from eggs benedict dripping with tangy Hollandaise sauce, bacon & eggs, and huevos rancheros to fluffy pancakes, decadent French toast, and fresh baked biscuits with gravy. Rick’s bakery makes the best pastries and muffins if you need something on the fly, but their epic cinnamon rolls are meant to be enjoyed with a seat, a fork, and a cup of coffee. If you are looking for lighter fare, the a la carte menu has fresh fruits and classic breakfast sides, including Caribbean-inspired dishes hailing back to Rick’s heritage.
A Hearty Lunch
Breakfast may be the most important meal of the day, but Rick’s Palm Springs doesn’t skimp on lunch, either. From specialty sandwiches to the Cold Sandwich Board and their Hot and Hearty Lunches, you’ll find the perfect mid-day meal here. Delicious sandwiches include a Reuben with savory pastrami piled high on fresh rye bread, a Swedish meatloaf sandwich sure to fill you up, and the BLTO. In a battle for burger supremacy, Rick’s Giant Hamburger is contested by Sue’s Garden Burger, but no matter who emerges victorious it is your taste buds that come out as the winner. A Kid’s menu makes it easy to please the little ones, with offerings like hot dogs, chicken strips, and perfectly fried French fries.
Rick’s Palm Springs truly is quality you can taste, and that is the reason it has been a local favorite for over 28 years. Open every day from 6am to 3pm, stop on by and join the family and fun. Rick’s is located at 1973 N. Palm Canyon Drive.
