Tucked inside a giant strip mall off Palm Canyon, Peninsula is a tiny order-at-the-counter bakery that’s home to the best pastries, bread, and baked goods in Palm Springs. They make everything daily using imported French flour and butter, and when they sell out, they’re out. So no matter how late things went in the hot tub last night, be sure to get there no later than 10am, or prepare for slim pickings. It’s impossible to pick a favorite at a place like Peninsula, but if you see a gooey almond croissant or thick, crunchy kouign amann behind the glass case, get them. Then fill the rest of your pastry box with whatever else is catching your eye.
