About French Miso Cafe

The restaurant is the creation of Tomoko Jones and Eric Bovy. and the name “French Miso Cafe” reflect the diversity of their origins.

Eric is from the south of France and runs the kitchen and menus, Tomoko is from Japan and manages the dining room. The result is an adorable setting where one can enjoy a traditional Japanese and French lunch or dinner at the same table.

Words of Love

I may have found the perfect brunch spot. It combines my two favorites - French and Asian. Everything was amazing. We had the bento box, eggs Benedict any the Quiche was so amazing we got 2 of them. That staff is super attentive and the owner is so sweet. No wonder this place has the highest rating in Palm Springs. And on top of it all the courtyard is quaint. I kind of don’t wanna leave - might just spent my day with my bottle of champagne.

Tony Ehrbar

We were visiting Palm Springs from Houston , TX. We enjoyed 2 wonderful meals at French Miso Cafe. The food is unforgettable! You can tell much love goes into their food and restaurant. Not only is the food amazing but the restaurant atmosphere is very special! I would return to Palm Springs just to eat at this wonderful restaurant. Truly a gem!

Belinda Zagars

Absolutely wonderful. Beautiful quiet space. Exceptional omelette with very fresh ingredients. Great coffee. And Japanese Bento breakfast option as a bonus! Best shiitake mushrooms I’ve ever had. Love the mix of French and Japanese cuisine. Exceptionally friendly and wonderful service.
