tiny shop

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...

This little gem is delicious!!! What great food, friendly staff and a nice patio on the front and back side! The food is fresh, quick, fast and amazingly delicious in quality and quantity! The orange juice is freshly squeezed and their croissants are fluffy and so so good. Great atmosphere for families and couples! This is a must try while... More

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.

While visiting from Colorado, I was told to visit Carmel's. So glad I did! I was greeted by Sarah with a genuine smile and desire to welcome me! After choosing the outdoor garden patio, Sarah gave me a brief history of the restaurant. She also described nearly all the menu items to me with confidence. I selected the "Cold Toddy"... More
