drink more coffee in Palm Springs.

Welcome to Ernest Coffee.

Palm Springs' only independent coffee shop serving Stumptown.

In 1953 Don the Beachcomber's tiki restaurant opened in this very space where we now serve you delicious coffee every morning. We named our coffee shop after this legend’s given birth name, Ernest Raymond Beaumont Gantt, celebrating the founding father of tiki restaurants and bars while serving you honest and delicious Stumptown coffee to get your day started. The original tiki torches still stand tall above our front door and inspire us to continue the decades-in-the-making tradition of creating a vibrant, inspired space for people to come together and have a great time!

Open seven days a week from 6am to 7pm Ernest Coffee offers Stumptown Coffee, fresh pastries and quiche baked local every day, including delicious gluten-free options. We offer soy, almond and coconut milk as dairy alternatives.

Join us for a glass of wine, beer or bubbly, and a try our shareable snacks from our brand new, crave-worthy snack menu. We love happy hour! Half price house wine and $3 beers abound from 4pm to 6pm.

Come and enjoy your favorite beverage in our open airy space or catch some rays on our south facing patio boasting some amazing mountain views.

Ernest Coffee. Serious coffee... seriously.
