Palm Springs Birthday Dinner & Best Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

I have two scenarios. First my mom's birthday is this weekend. She lives in Palm Springs and I want to take here somewhere special. She tends to do the happy hour thing - Lulu's, Spencers, Kaiser Grille.

I've looked at a few threads and my list consists of:
Norma's
Al Dente
Le Vallauris
Johanne's
Purple Rain (I see many hot and cold reviews. How is it lately?)
Pomme Frittes
Zin (again this looks like it might be hit or miss. Thoughts?)
Copley (is it worth the money?)
Citron

My second question is if you had to say what your favorite spot (pick one for each in Palm Springs)... is for breakfast, lunch and dinner? I am also a writer and want to cover a 'foodie' piece focusing on a perfect day in Palm Springs exploring the culinary terrain while there.

Thanks!

    I've been going to Le Vallauris since I was a kid...it is one of my fave's and especially for special occasions...Wally's Turtle too.
    Las Consuela's for breakfast/lunch or dinner..Palm Springs or RM.
    Shame on the Moon is a great local place for dinner.
    Teppanyaki at Mikado at the Marriott is a fun time.
    Parker for breakfast.
