The Palm Springs area conjures up images of sunny skies, golf, tennis, lounging by the pool, and dining at fine and/or fun restaurants. And, for many of us, with our dog by our side.
While dining with your canine best friend is a common site here in the desert, it’s important to know before you arrive at your chosen eatery that it is indeed receptive to your furry family member. A call or website search will be worth your research. Here are a few of my favorite pooch-friendly restaurants I enjoy with my Lollie!
