Okay, so I didn't realize they only do poached eggs...but I was hungry and my husband likes poached eggs, so we decided to order. Before the food even came, I like the vibe of the place, and the customer service was GREAT! Ashley was a sweetie....explaining various possibilities and her favorites....then when it turned out the coffee pot was empty...offered... More

We stopped in here while shopping around Carmel; we weren't super hungry so just got some chips, soup, and drinks. The staff were really friendly but quirky. They have a pretty large menu for being such a small location. Breakfast and lunch options with espresso drinks to boot! If you're looking for just a quick place for a bite to... More

Another Carmel favorite which has never disappointed. It is always a good omen when you are torn between the various menu options. A little on the pricey side but worth it in my opinion - particularly if you can sit outside on a sunny day. (There are only 4-5 small table available outside)

I promised myself to actually start doing reviews in the new year instead of just relying on others and not having to do some critical thinking. So our first trip of the year for MLK weekend and we went to Carmel. It is beautiful here but sadly that is due to drought conditions. On a beautiful morning we went to... More

This has always been one of our favorite places to visit. Wonderful fresh delicious food. You go up to a counter to place your order And then they bring your food out to you. This is where they need big improvement. The gentleman (small build) could not have been more unfriendly and rude. Me mother law inquired on what kind... More

Found this place recently during a quick stop for lunch. Ordered the chicken salad sandwich on a croissant. Sounds kind of boring, right? NOPE! Sandwich was fabulous---lots of avocado and amazing quality chicken salad. Wonderful place---can't wait to return next year!

My wife loves avocado, and I'm okay with it. We both had the avocado open faced sandwich. It was perfectly served with a bit of sea salt and olive oil...so delicious. I've been trying to recreate it since we got back from our trip, but never tastes as good. Our espresso and latte were good as well.

I've been going here for coffee or lunch multiple times a week since it opened. Excellent food and service. All organic and mostly locally sourced. Great for breakfast, lunch, and coffee breaks. They will be expanding in early 2014 and will then be offering early dinners also.

Very quality food, nice service, great coffee! Only complaint--and it's not really a fair complaint--is that they don't do traditional brunchy foods, and that for the amt/quality of the food, it IS a little pricey. But they were wonderful about getting us a bowl of cut-up berries for our son, and the ingredients were clearly top-notch.
