As the top-rated breakfast spot in Palm Springs on Yelp, Cheeky’s is an incredibly popular restaurant in the city. This is for a good reason though, as the restaurant is fantastic with a lot of crazy food options and a menu that changes almost every week. Add to that the fact that they have a bacon flight with different types of bacon, and you have the recipe for a great breakfast. Here is all the information.
- Hours: 8 AM – 2 PM, Wednesday – Sunday
- Location: 622 N Palm Canyon Dr, Palm Springs, CA 92262
- Recommendation: Bacon flight and the Benedict
- Information from my visit in 2015 and 2019
The restaurant has a small interior and a decent sized patio, but on the weekends, the wait can be a good amount of time to get a table. I would recommend going right when they open or at like 9:30 AM on a weekday as you will usually be able to score a table without a wait then. For parking, there is a lot of street parking around the restaurant that you can use.
I recommend the coffee at Cheeky’s as they make a robust black coffee. For the menu, I will tell you what we got, but it changes pretty much every week, so there is no guarantee they will have it when you come. That being said, the bacon flight is pretty much a menu staple. The way that the bacon is prepared changes though; for example, I was there during Christmas, so they had an eggnog strip of bacon.
This was one of the reasons I wanted to go here as it was something fun that I had never seen before. The differences between each of the strips were relatively subtle for me, but all of them were good. The best was the jalapeño as it had a spice to it that you could really taste and the eggnog as it had a slightly milky smooth taste. Still a ton of fun, just not as different as I thought it would be.
Green Tea Waffle with Coconut Creme and Kumquat
This dish was exciting with a subtle green tea taste, and super strong coconut whipped creme. With the syrup and kumquat on top, you have a breakfast that is much different than anything you have had before. You can tell that thought went into the flavors as they worked well together, and I enjoyed it.
Eggs with Brussels, Squash and Goat Cheese
This dish had lightly whipped eggs with a faint goat cheese flavor. It was a tasty way to start the morning that didn’t destroy your stomach. It also comes with toast and a home-made jam that was fantastic.
I have been back many times since the initial visit and it is easily one of my favorite spots in Palm Springs. I still always get the bacon flight each time and love trying all the flavors they come up with.
Overall this spot lives up to its Yelp reviews; it is an excellent place for good food and a fun atmosphere. Just make sure to visit on a weekday if you can, you will be waiting if you don’t. Let me know your favorite thing here in the comments.
