Love alfresco dining? Palm Springs has the perfect climate and settings for patio dining, and we're sharing some of the most notable places for you to try right here.

A favorite among locals and travelers alike, Spencer's is the recipient of a number of awards, including Best Outdoor Dining, Best Sunday Brunch, Best Chef and many more. Savor the beauty of outdoor life in Palm Springs while you enjoy new interpretations of classic American cuisine for breakfast, Sunday brunch, lunch or dinner - there are even plenty of gluten-free options. Both inside and on the patio, Spencer's atmosphere is the epitome of casual elegance.

Where can you dine alfresco in a celebrity's backyard? At the award-winning Copley's on Palm Canyon - the 1940s guesthouse on Cary Grant's estate was converted into this premiere dining spot back in 2004, and it has received national and local acclaim ever since. Open only for dinner, the menu in this relaxed but sophisticated restaurant is noted for its "contemporary American dishes filled with unique elements".

If you're into trendy bistros with a cool vibe, then Jake's is the place for you. Located in the Uptown Design District of Palm Springs, their chef-inspired twists on American comfort food include lunch, dinner and weekend brunch selections. Jake's goes out of its way to ensure your outdoor dining experience is as wonderful as its food - alfresco dining in the courtyard is complete with a fountain along with heaters for cooler evenings and misters on warm days. The friendly atmosphere at Jake's has made it a "go to" spot for both visitors and locals; in fact, many new friendships have been formed among repeat diners!

Also in the Uptown Design District is Eight4Nine Restaurant & Lounge, a spacious dining destination with an eclectic ambiance of rustic and contemporary decors along with fabulous artwork, all of which blend for a truly unique experience. Making this spectacular space even more impactful is the fact that it was originally Palm Springs' first Post Office, built in 1954. Patio dining offers breathtaking views of the San Jacinto Mountains while interior dining rooms of different sizes and atmospheres create settings for intimate meals or large parties - it's known as "the place to see and be seen." Eight4Nine's menu is as eclectic as its decor and has been featured in many high-profile magazines. Focusing on both taste and presentation, the dishes feature fresh ingredients prepared from scratch in a "celebration of West Coast Modern American cuisine" - gluten-free options are also available.
