Mornings at the El Morocco Inn & Spa...
What better way to start your morning than to wake up to the smell of French Press coffee or one of our freshly brewed exotic teas...ready to enjoy in the Kasbah Lounge daily. Take a tray to your guest "bedchambre" or poolside and enjoy avocados, crème cheese, tomatoes and onions piled high on a toasted bagel...or keep it simple with our crunchy granola and maybe some ultra healthy rice or soy milk. We're pleased to offer all sorts of yummy goodies from pudding cakes, pastries, yogurts, fresh fruits and juices (don't you love California?) to start your day!
Throughout the day we serve it up Moroccan style...
Along with plenty of fresh dates, figs and our own "Humphrey Bogarts" (Moroccan Mint tea and lemonade), you'll also find complimentary snacks and other beverages always available in the Kasbah Lounge and Library.
Desert Hot Springs is known for its’ hot springs mineral water - and it's pure drinking water... voted among the best drinking water in the entire world! Alas...one cannot not live by water alone...so we've come up with a list of our favorite local restaurants!
We also pride ourselves in knowing about most of the restaurants throughout the Coachella valley-and while one or two may have gotten past us...we are pretty good sleuths at hunting them down and giving them a try. If they're great, you'll find us talking about them at our nightly happy hour!
Here's a list of our local favorites...
The Capri - Italian Restaurant and Steakhouse
This outstanding restaurant recently moved into the Miracle Springs Hotel and still offers melt-in-your-mouth Italian favorites, not to mention about the best steaks you'll ever have. (No kidding!). Located just 4 blocks from the El Morocco Inn & Spa, we're more than happy to make reservations for our guests...it's always a sell out. When you go, ask for the "Man-can"...it's their Manicotti and Cannelloni special-not even on the menu. They'll know we sent ya!
South of the Border - Mexican
A genuine retired Matador owns and runs this terrific Mexican restaurant. one of the very best in the entire Palm Springs Valley. The El Morocco is located on 4th Street and this amazing place is over on 2nd Street, just a few blocks away. Try their house specialty, the spinach enchiladas...yummy! Open for lunch too!
Thai Palms Restaurant
They may not have a website, but you can't beat this little restaurant for healthy, fresh and tastily prepared dishes. Great for those who love rich flavors and "fresh from the garden" vegetables. This restaurant occupies the corner of Palm Drive and Buena Vista, so it's just 5 blocks from the inn!
Rocky's New York Pizza
Only the best Pizza, bar none, in the valley! Have them deliver and enjoy your pizza poolside!
