Café at Shields

Situated on Shields Date Garden’s exclusive and historical venue, Café at Shields opened its doors in October of 2010 offering a unique and impressive atmosphere for local and visiting diners alike. At Café at Shields, guests will find a selection of flavorful items from a California Cuisine style menu. Gluten free, vegetarian, and date incorporating menu options, fresh squeezed orange and grapefruit juice, designated pet friendly areas, and live music make this café one of the most accommodating and appealing restaurants in the Coachella Valley. The large café patio features a paved dining area surrounded by colorful umbrellas, tables decorated with cream-colored linen and stringed, fairy lighting. The entire patio stretches around the café dining room and is composed of 3 areas each offering a different view of the lake, palm tree garden and breathtaking view of the mountains which makes it a perfect setting for any special event! The Café dining room offers a mid-century style and can be used to seat small groups of 35 and under or for buffet setups.
