The Stagecoach Eats will be places to try for music fans while out here for the Stagecoach Music Festival. Nothing fancy, but hopefully something to hit the spot

Stagecoach is an expensive proposition, and if you have to stay all the way out in Palm Springs, here’s a few options for food prior to heading out to the Empire Polo Fields.
BIT OF COUNTRY
418 S Indian Canyon Dr. Palm Springs
This is my favorite place because it’s good food at a reasonable price.
It’s also no-nonsense.
Bit of Country is only open until 2 p.m. each day. There’s a wide range of breakfast options that includes eggs, omelets, crepes, waffles, pancakes. They are also one of the few restaurants to offer grits.
I’m partial because I also am friends with the owners. But there’s no better place for breakfast.
It’s not on the menu, but ask for the chicken and Belgian waffles.
240 N Palm Canyon Dr, Palm Springs, CA
A favorite in the Palm Springs area.
The key to the sandwiches here is the Dutch Crunch bread and their bomb sauce.
Many of the sandwiches are named after local celebrities and events.
I like the Rafa, named after tennis star Rafael Nadal, which includes roast beef and barbecue sauce.
555 S Sunrise Way, Palm Springs
One thing you will have to realize is that you will have a ton of options at Nature’s Café. The one option not available to you is meat. It’s a vegetarian and vegan place for anyone with a crazy diet.
But they have over 100 items to choose from, along with fresh organic juices that are freshly squeezed. You can even try a date shake, which is famous for this area.
I always go with the California Burger, but the daily specials are always inviting. Above is a picture of the vegan mole enchiladas.
