One of Palm Springs’ most popular bistro-style restaurants, CAVA welcomes you to a unique dining experience surrounded by a stunning mountain view. Open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, the bistro’s selections have a distinctive California flare, with dishes prepared using the freshest ingredients, many locally-grown or locally-produced.
Menu favorites for breakfast include the Lemon Ricotta Pancakes with Fresh Temecula Raspberries, fresh-squeezed juices, and Huevos Rancheros Benedict. Lunches at CAVA are famous for the locally-farmed salads and the fresh-baked flatbread dishes. At dinner, the menu shifts focus to an extraordinarily creative array of entrees. Fare includes everything from a 40-day aged New York Steak Oscar with fresh jumbo lump crab, to fresh Market Salmon with an enticing tandoori rub and saffron rice, to Cacciatore-style Wild Sea Bass with mushroom risotto.
The wine list at CAVA showcases the best California vintners, with an extensive selection of reds and whites by the glass. We are also quite proud of our dessert menu, with decadent offerings such as the Vanilla Bean Crème Brûlée topped with local mixed berries, or Mom’s Apple Crisp Á la Mode, or the Shameless Chocolate Cake with a luscious warm chocolate center.
Private Dining and Semi Private Dining Parties are welcome. For reservations or inquiries, call (760) 773 4444, or book a table at CAVA at Open Table.
