4068 Forest Hill Blvd., Palm Springs, 561-4392100.
M-F, 6 a.m.-8 p.m.; Sat., 6 a.m.-7 p.m.; Sun., 7 a.m.-1 p.m. and an authentic vibe. If you’re looking for something a bit more formal than Tulipan’s grab-and-go format but less fancy than Don Ramon’s white tablecloths, Tropical Bakery fits the bill.
Friendly and fast. There seemed to be a small army of servers behind the counter during my visit. Tropical Bakery accepts cash only.
Surprisingly quiet, considering how many people packed the dining room.
Ye s . Mo d e s t p r i c e s , a casual atmosphere and a full pastry case combine to make Tropical Bakery a good pick for the family.
