Located in one of the most-underrated little hotels in Palm Springs, this is the casual, hidden lunch oasis you can’t find anywhere else in Palm Springs. While dinner here is only open to hotel guests, The Barn Kitchen at Sparrows Lodge has opened its lunch situation to the public and it has quickly become one of our favorites in town. The ham and mustard melt has no business being as good as it is, and the smoked salmon spread is all you need when the temperature hits triple digits.
