La Copine began in 2010 on a small food cart in Northern Liberties, Philadelphia. In 2012, Claire & Nikki moved to Los Angeles, California where they hosted pop-up dinners and catered private events in-between their work schedules. 

In 2015, the pair moved to the desert and revived a roadside diner. They opened for brunch on September 11th, 2015. After acquiring a beer & wine license they changed the hours to revolve around the sunsets. 

In March 2020, the restaurant temporarily closed due to the pandemic. They offered takeout and catering services while the restaurant was closed. For all catering inquiries please email Currently the restaurant is gearing up to reopen outdoor dining March 18th! Stay tuned for more updates.

In the meantime, you can check out Claire's music! She records under the name C'est Claire.
