The Eats at Copley's
When to go?
Copley’s in downtown Palm Springs , Cary Grant former guesthouse circa 1940. Upscale American cuisine with a European flair. We went early, around 5:30, and didn't have any trouble getting in. But as with anywhere in Palm Springs, I would recommend getting a reservation especially if you have a group.
How to get there?
Easy to find in the heart of Palm Springs. There is free parking on Palm Canyon Drive in the front of the restaurant between Alejo and Tamarisk streets. They offer complimentary valet service every night (December - June).
What to order?
The cocktail menu was fairly traditional so we ordered our favorites a Paloma and a Perfect Rye Manhattan. Food was exceptional! Go for the specials, the soup of the day was a creamy cauliflower leek soup with smoked salmon. Delicious and unique. For dinner, the special fish entree, grilled swordfish with corn and red pepper mashed potatoes. For 'on the menu' options order the beet and arugula salad and the dessert. The dessert! Their specialty is toffee and date English sticky pudding with vanilla ice cream. Made with the famous local dates of Palm Springs. It was incredible.
Good for kids or dogs?
I wouldn't recommend taking kids and surprisingly didn't see any dogs!
The patio was beautiful and heated, for when the temperature dips at night.
Close to lots of shops and the Movie Colony. The Movie Colony is one of the most notable Palm Springs Neighborhoods. It was home to Cary Grant, Jack Benny, Harry Cohn, and David O. Selznick (think Gone With the Wind) to name a few. A walk through this neighborhood is a walk back in time.
