The Upscale Deli in the Desert - Manhattan in the Desert is Palm Springs’ more upscale deli. Ever since this deli opened about three years ago, it is always mobbed. Never mind if it is breakfast, lunch or dinner, the parking lot is full and you usually have to wait; often though for only a few minutes. Of course while you are waiting you are face-to-face with their humongous deserts and pastries; each of which could easily serve two to three.

Bread and deserts are baked fresh daily. And, don’t miss breakfast featuring fresh baked cinnamon bread, French toast and 8-egg omelets with thick bacon!
