Nice stop for food when you don't want or need a restaurant

Just grabbed a coffee and a breakfast snack and thought it was just right. You can tie up your dog while you run in to place your order. They will come deliver it to you. Simple menu items. It might be hard to find off of Ocean since it's in a "mall-like" area towards the back, unless you enter... read more

The food was good but not a lot of options for vegetarians. The oatmeal was very wet, but good and obviously not quick-cook, rather steel cut oats. The coffee was good and organic, but few options for milk (half and half, whole, or almond). Overall, it was a nice place to stop and eat but if you are at all... More

My husband and I stumbled across this one morning and were in brunch Heaven. I need to be careful of what I eat, and this place is perfect for those requiring farm-to-table fare. They had awesome kale smoothies, any kind of omelette you can imagine (and they were huge portion sizes) and delicious bacon. We wanted to make it back... More

Found this place on yelp. You walk up to the counter to order, and then sit down with a Polaroid pic of an employee to have your food developed. We got "Alvaro and Aioli". So cute! Menu is varied, and all food is fresh. I had the Green Eggs and Ham. The fresh fruit was berries and nectarines, rather than... More

I am so glad we stumbled upon this slice of food heaven for lunch. Lots of fresh, tasty, and healthy options. The desserts looked delicious and they had a wide variety of juices and drinks too. There is a fireplace in the dining area too if you need to warm up.

I love finding great food at a good value. Especially in Carmel. Carmel Belle is tucked inside the Doud Arcade....slightly difficult to find but so worth it. You can dine in or take out. Food is ordered at the counter then brought cheerfully to your table. All ingredients are sourced locally (or as local as possible) and are deliciously prepared.... More

outside, this local favorite offers an interesting mix: breakfast polenta -- a large bowl with roasted tomatoes and an egg -- and a selection of granola combinations. Smoothies, a variety of coffees, and an indoor fireplace. A good place to meet for long talks, or to hide away with a laptop.

Located inside a shopping area. Cafe type seating. Interesting food. I would go back to pick up "goodies" for a picnic. Looked popular with the locals with its wide range of offerings from coffee, breakfast, sandwiches,fresh juices, charcuterie, using lots of local products. Serves alcohol, too. We had the salad with free range chicken and the BLT. Both were excellent.

We had lunch here both days we were in Carmel. I am glad I checked it out onTripadvisor beforehand or might not have selected it. It is like an English indoor market cafe but serving fresh, delicious sandwiches, salads, soups, cakes and more, plus lovely coffee.

We made our first visit to Carmel Belle off the street in downtown Carmel-by-the-Sea and recessed back where it mingles within other shops and galleries. It isn’t someplace you would necessarily find an excellent restaurant. So grab a table to guarantee a place to sit and order from the cashier counter. We found three items on the menu that raised...
