Unlike La Quinta Resort & Club’s earliest guests — known to discreetly pour verboten spirits in their orange juice to create Citrus Blossoms during Prohibition — modern visitors love the ever-evolving list of innovative cocktails they can now find at all the hotel’s restaurants.

Twenty 6, the resort’s modern American bistro, beckons patrons from the ground floor with tempting libations, a newly remodeled art deco dining area with ample sunlight, a lively sports bar with flat-screen TVs, and a robust food menu. It’s named for the year the property opened, 1926.

Serving comfort classics for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, Twenty 6 is perhaps best known for its takes on eggs Benedict, prepared one of three ways: with classic Canadian bacon, Scottish smoked salmon, or portobello mushrooms, all served on a toasted English muffin and drizzled with homemade hollandaise sauce. Pair any with the modern Grapefruit Spritz mixed with lemon and prosecco, and brunch gets even better.


Salads, burgers, flatbreads, and shareables like buffalo cauliflower round out the afternoon and evening offerings. All dishes are made with fresh, seasonal ingredients, which means that while guests can always rely on finding their favorite meals on the menu, they can also find innovative and creative combinations that quickly become new favorites.

Whether it’s brunch, happy hour, or an elegant dinner you crave, Twenty 6 ensures every moment is delicious.
