Generally, the Sunnylands café is open during operating hours, but may close at times to comply with Centers for Disease Control and Prevention precautions for reducing the spread of the coronavirus. Please call (760) 202-2222 to learn of any closures. For details on visiting safely during the pandemic, click here.

Light lunches and snacks are served at the Sunnylands café, while you enjoy the best view in the Coachella Valley. Specials include iced tea the way Mrs. Annenberg liked it and French press coffee.

Please note, we have made some changes to our café in order to maintain social distancing for our staff and guests at the Center & Gardens. Indoor seating is unavailable at this time. All items on the menu are prepared in grab-and-go containers for your safety and convenience. Outdoor seating is permitted. Tables on the patio have been spaced out to allow guests to maintain a six-foot distance from people not in their party.

All salads and sandwiches are pre-made by Aspen Mills Bakery and served in lidded boxes made from recycled materials with disposable rolled cutlery so guests can enjoy their order outside the Center or take it to go. Our popular lattes and French press coffees are served in to-go cups with lids. In order to maintain safe social distancing, food and drinks will not be delivered to tables.

Face coverings must be worn at Sunnylands at all times, except when eating or drinking.


Sunnylands is committed to environmental responsibility. Recycled and recyclable materials are used whenever possible.
