Carmel Belle is located in a courtyard, so it's a little hard to find, but worth the search. We ate here during Monterey Car Week and the service was pretty quick, which is saying something since the show was packed! I had their Caeser salad and tomato soup and my husband had the BLT. Everything was good and fresh.

Located inside a small building ( not visible from the outside ) this is a large place, they have 2 stations, one to order your lunches and another for juices, deserts and coffee. The food is very very good. It look like a food court but with only one restaurant. Ingredients are fresh and the " service " is nice.... More

My family and I came here during the overlap of breakfast and lunch so we could order what we liked. The breakfast polenta was great, as were the lunch salads and the fresh juices. Lots of vegetarian options and lots of healthy options, at a reasonable price.

Excellent salads, blue cheese and chicken. Good and fresh products. You have to leave the commercial gallery to avoid noisy environment.

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.
