In the heart of Palm Springs sits the Colony Palms Hotel. And at the heart of the Colony Palms sits Purple Palm - their all-day poolside restaurant straight out of your patterned wallpaper dreams. With a weekend brunch menu that has everything from brioche French toast to ceviche to a chorizo-topped burger, this is an ideal spot for those mornings when you can’t decide what your stomach can handle right now. The bright space is calm and quiet, even for a pool restaurant.
