Tips from locals
Incredible American breakfast menu combined with homemade Mexican dishes. Be sure to order mild as the homemade Mexican fare is delicious but on the spicy side if you don't specify. If you eat here, you can walk through the Date Garden for free, recommended. Also, gift shop is worth a look.
Amazing brunch with a nice outdoor patio. You can stroll the gardens and gift shop when done as well. Live music on weekends.
GREAT food (breakfast and lunch) with outdoor seating. It’s an Iconic location. Highly recommended!
Fantastic food! Enjoy eating outdoors surrounded by date palms, water fountain, and live music.￼

“Las Casuelas Quinta blends the tastes of colonial Mexico with contemporary California in traditional Las Casuelas style. While you listen to the terrific sounds of live entertainment, enjoy dining under the Tropical Palapa Patio or by the massive fireplace in the Great Room, there's something for all the sense at Las Casuelas Quinta.”
