Joyce’s Sushi, located in the heart of Rancho Mirage, is already a top local spot for in-the-know seafood lovers, who come in for super-fresh sushi, sashimi, and specialty rolls. The key to Joyce’s impressive offerings? It’s bevy of high quality fish, including wild tuna, sea urchin, salmon, and yellowtail delivered daily from Japan. Try the Moon River: spicy tuna, crab, salmon, and sauce wrapped in cucumber.

But when you want the sushi to come to you, Joyce’s catering service is ready to deliver.

Its location at the corner of Bob Hope and Gerald Ford makes it especially convenient for guests of the myriad of resorts located just minutes away, including the Westin Mission Hills Golf Resort & Spa, Agua Caliente Resort Casino Spa, and The Ritz-Carlton, Rancho Mirage.

The restaurant can create catering packages of varying sizes, incorporating its fresh signature special rolls and an array of nigiri. Joyce’s waives the delivery fee for those within 10 miles of the restaurant and also offers chef services at your home for the ultimate susi soiréee.

Leah Post and Brandon Weimer, the millennial duo behind this local, family-owned company, first sold their gourmet almond toffee to raise funds for a student trip to Italy. More than a decade later, their toffee emporium parades everything from toffee popcorn to hand-dipped ice cream bars and shakes.

Brandini has been featured on The Martha Stewart Show and Oprah Winfrey’s O List. It now sells the family’s sweet confections at the flagship store and factory in Rancho Mirage, as well as boutique shops in Palm Springs, Cabazon, and Westfield Mall Century City. (Book a factory tour to see how the sweet stuff is made.)

Rancho Mirage Koffi & Roasting Facility

A gathering place for locals, this trendy purveyor of espresso drinks and morning pastries has been pouring its organic house-roasted blends since 2002, when it opened its first location in the Uptown Design District.
Today, beans are prepared daily at Koffi’s Rancho Mirage roasting facility, delivering a dark roast that packs an intense, chocolate-infused punch; a lighter option for mild, Milano-style sipping; and a water-processed blend that is naturally decaffeinated.

Beverages are available hot, frozen, or iced, and the coffeehouse serves up a solid cold brew, as well as fresh-baked pastries and other breakfast and lunch bites.

In addition to Rancho Mirage, Koffi offers three locations in Palm Springs. The newest café, at Kaptur Plaza near downtown Palm Springs, already has quite the history: Built in the ’70s, the modernist complex is a Class 1 historic site designed by architect Hugh Kaptur.
