Even by Joshua Tree standards, La Copine is in the middle of nowhere. That said, this new-ish daytime cafe (open 2-7pm) serves some of the best food in the area and is worth the extra 20-minute drive into the desert. The menu is on the smaller side, but with options like duck liver mousse, pork belly banh mis, and fried chicken, it covers a lot of ground and is more upscale than most places you find around Joshua Tree. The bright, open space is the ideal hangout spot after you’ve immersed yourself in The Integratron sound bath in nearby Landers, CA.
