Matchbox Vintage Pizza Bistro
The Matchbox Vintage Pizza Bistro has open air patio dining overlooking the bustling streets of Palm Canyon Drive. It’s a great place to relax after a long day of shopping or sightseeing. The menu’s focus is pizza. Try one of Matchbox’s favorites – Spicy Sopressata Salami & Wild Mushroom – or try something more traditional such as Sausage & Onion. If you’re not in a pizza mood, there are plenty of other options, from Bacon-wrapped Sea Scallops to Wood Oven-roasted Chicken. The salads are creative, too. The Beet Salad is a sprinkling of candied walnut, grilled ciabatta, toasted pinenuts, goat cheese fritter and baby red oak on a bed of arugula, finished with olive oil and sea salt.
Palm Springs Villagefest
Palm Springs VillageFest transforms downtown into a lively street fair every Thursday night. Of course there are all of the regular clubs, shops and restaurants that line Palm Canyon Drive. Add in a variety of artists, entertainers and makeshift markets and you’ll be busy for hours. It’s a great place to pick up fresh flowers, fruits and vegetables – or snacks and desserts if you need a sugar rush!
