I ate at From scratch for breakfast & Namu for dinner.. both were very satisfying, there's others, but I was only in that area for 3 days. Some good choices there.

We were intrigued passing by this shopping area and made an effort to return the next day to explore. We were disappointed in the lack of shops, unless you are interested in consignment stores. We couldn't find a restaurant that interested us either, so we returned to downtown Carmel.

We have been to The Barnyard several times. It is so pretty and peaceful. The shops are fairly upmarket, but good for gift shopping and travellers. Merchandise comprises of shoes, clothing, jewellery, giftware, house and garden, cafes and restaurants. We went to Bahama Billy's restaurant a few years ago and loved it, but I hear it changed hands and possibly... More

The landscape alone is worth a visit. When your done looking at the grounds go into the specialty stores and see those one of a kind gifts you are always trying to find for someone special.

Nice shopping area on the the opposite side(away from downtown Carmel)of HWY 1. Several different restaurants that are not pretentious like most of the ones in downtown Carmel. The Lafayette Bakery has really good food. Downstairs there is the From Scratch restaurant which I just saw on Diners Drive-Ins and Dives-after we got home so it's on the list for... More

Candy store is nice, appear to make their own. If you stop here, also go to The Crossroads, they have an incredible stationary store, good consignment store, more of a non-tourist destination with an Ace Hardware.

Lots of cool shops to see and just window shop. Some nice eating places. Great pizza. Nothing frozen there; all fresh ingredients. Good service, fair beer selection, but definitely go in hungry cause you won't leave that way! Highly recommend it.

There are an incredible dollhouse museum that's donation only and several good restaurants at the Barnyard. Of course there are fancy clothing stores and artsy stuff too.

Viewing the Barnyard from Highway 1, it always looks like an interesting place to go explore. However once at the Barnyard, I find it more of a "hit and a miss". I like the garden areas and shopping at the garden store. There is Patrick James. There is a variety of fashion, jewelry, and dining places. There is also some... More
