IL Sogno which means “Dream” in Italian, is a small café located on swanky El Paseo in Palm Desert. It is super adorable, charming and cozy. The quaint patio with its dainty white metal chairs and tables, allow for a whimsical place to people watch alfresco. Inside, the brick colored walls inspire a romantic mood of sorts, with intimate banquette seating. But it’s the long granite counter across from the seating that can make your eyes pop out. It is a sweet tooth haven, or a diabetic’s nightmare. There are so many desserts displayed on the counter, it’s almost dizzying. It is natural to want to try every single one of them. Exquisitely made in house baked delights from cookies, to tarts, to flourless cakes and those with plenty of flour sit patiently on the granite surface, waiting to be chosen, to be adopted into some ones palate, content to be devoured and never to be seen again. IL Sogno’s pond sized cappuccinos make fantastic accompaniments to their delightful desserts.
IL Sogno also offers other items apart from their scrumptious desserts including soups, salad and other light breakfast and lunch fare.
Opened for Breakfast and Lunch, it is a real treat to stop into the café for a “Dreamy” afternoon of coffee, sweet treats and more. A definite Palm Springs Local favorite!!
