The shop and date selections are great. The dining garden is a hidden gem with delicious food for breakfast and lunch. The patty melt and date shake were fabulous.

Shield's used to be out in farm country but now is an oasis in the urban sprawl. I am not keen on them charging for touring the gardens. The dates and treats remain a fun stop while in the desert.
