Last Sunday we headed out to Palm Springs for the day. Mike had never been, so it was time to take him out there and explore the area.
I'm a planner by nature though, so we drove out there with a full schedule planned ahead of time right down to where we would be eating. With Flynn being on a gluten-free diet (and a picky eater) I don't like to take any chances when it comes to finding food he's going to love so it's important I go into any day trip with a solid plan.
We also love hitting the road bright and early when we are heading out to explore somewhere new ... just don't ask the kids how much they enjoy being woken up before midday on a weekend. But, if we are going to venture further than about an hour away from home we want to see as much as possible and spend as long as possible at our destination. And, let's face it, no matter how much the kids complain about the early start they always end up having a great day.
It is approximately 1.5 hours to drive from Temecula to Palm Springs, so we decided that our first stop of the day should be an early brunch at Lulu California Bistro. With full bellies, we'd be able to take on the rest of the day.
Lulu California Bistro
Lulu California Bistro offers something for everyone, and their gluten-free options don't disappoint no matter what time of day you are going. So while both Mike and Jay enjoyed different variations of the eggs benedict, I devoured the hazelnut crepes, Marisol ate her breakfast quesadilla, and Flynn was more than happy with hash browns and a gluten-free blueberry muffin.
