Shield's Date Garden, Palm Springs, CA
We were disappointed that the short film about the sex life of date palms wasn't playing because of COVID. However, we had a nice lunch in the Shield's Date Garden outdoor cafe. I started with an appetizer of a stuffed date wrapped in bacon. This was great! I want to make this at home! I also had the signature salad, which is spinach with fruit and dates. There is a large store with lots of date products. I enjoyed the marzipan-stuffed dates the most. I also had their famous date shake.
There is a pleasant walk with representations of moments from the life of Jesus. The path wanders through citrus groves and past date palms. There is a nice pond and fountain, too.
