Best BLT Ever!

Stumbled on this quaint-chic bistro on San Carlos between Ocean and 7th. What a delight! Brisk order line and crisp and clever staff. Best BLT ever..seriously! Belle Bowl salads and Strawberry-rhubarb pie...oh..and a fabulous heirloom caprese salad. What a gem.....living large in California!

Had a nice breakfast here. The eggs benedict were good, if a bit bland. Truffled toast amazing. Good coffees too. Casual and comfortable

Wonderful fresh food. We all ordered a glass of wine and different salads and they were all very fresh tasting with wonderful light dressing. You order at the cash register, pick up your food and choose your own table which can be inside or out. Great food at a very good price. We would all go back again.

We've had breakfast here before. So great but we have never had dinner. We were a group of 6 and everything that was ordered was great. Roasted chicken, salmon, pastas and salads. This is a little gem that isn't stuffy but excellent food.

Carmel Belle came highly recommended by local friends and reviews so I was eager to try it -- who can pass up Truffled egg toast! I ordered a green joule, and was thrilled to find a place in Camel that made them, and the Truffled egg toast. The dish lived up to its reputation and was delicious. The restaurant is... More

Organic ingredients, freshly squeezed juices, excellent meatloaf (dinner), superb pastries and coffee. Definitely, one of my favorites!

I ordered two soft poached eggs over toast with truffled mushrooms. The eggs were overlooked thereby making the entire dish a bit dry. Great flavor. They just missed the mark by overcoming the eggs.

We stopped by to get some breakfast and were pleasantly surprised to eat what could only be called California Cool Cuisine. We ordered the breakfast yogurt and the open-faced avocado sandwich. All the food was fresh, organic, and apparently made at the restaurant. This was definitely a great value for the money. I shall return to this place on my... More

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 off... 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
