Little local gem

Great little local place we stumbled upon. Fresh, yummy fare and everything is homemade. I loved my herb omelette with spinach salad. My hubby had a great croissant French toast. Warm, funky, and cozy atmosphere and a dog friendly patio. We will be back next time we're in the area!

for breakfast, an excellent selection with eggs done exactly the way you want them. the servings were not trying to gorge you, but were filling enough. nice decor, especially since it sits on the end of a parking lot on a busy street

We first found this little gem of a restaurant in May on our first trip to Arizona. We just finished hiking Camelback Mountain and were in need of food! We never forgot this cute little place and made sure we stopped again on our most recent visit. As soon as we got our rental car, we set the GPS for... More

The quality and taste of the food and coffee were generally good. We had a salad and turkey sandwich. I think they forgot the bacon on the sandwich though my body is happier for that, and the salad was a bit on the dry side (somehow...how does that happen?) but overall the presentation, freshness of the food and service were...

The unassuming presentation of the restaurant and the somewhat primitive appearance inside at Carmel's is no indication of the food. Carmel's is a perfect start to a weekend event with incredible breakfast fare. Well worth the experience..

Thanks, to TripAdvisor. I was able to find this little place. I would recommend this place to anyone. The food is great but the cold tea is awsome. ( chai tea). Theres only one thing that kind of bother me was that when you first come in the place smelled like cooked food. I know what do I expect is... More

Traveled via bicycle to this little gem of a spot for breakfast today! The breakfast burrito was very delicious. Freshly squeezed OJ could have used a couple ice cubes and the burrito came with tortilla chips - would have rather seen some fresh fruit. We would come back.
