While the reviews here were good, I am sort of on the fence. It is cafeteria style ordering but the seating area feels like I am at a cheap pancake house or in a food court (sorry). It lacks ambiance. As for the food, it is good but don't expect deep portions. The Oatmeal with Apples is basic at best... More

I actually followed some locals I overheard to this restaurant hidden in an internal square. You order at a register and then grab an indoor or outdoor table and they bring your food to you. The food was very fresh and delicious. I had fresh heirloom and tomatoes and fresh baked bread with salted butter - yummy. A nice option... More

In fairness, my 12 yr old daughter liked the ambience and like her avocado on a piece of bread sandwich. There is also water available. There were very few people in the restaurant when we we there in the morning. I disliked the austere(in my opinion) ambience, the slow service, my croissant with poached egg, arugula, cheese, and proscuitto seemed... More

Breakfast was really good. Fresh juice was perfect, coffee was delicious, poached eggs every way were great. We LOVED the stone cut oat meal.

We stumbled upon Carmel Belle while trying to decide where to eat dinner. With so many places to choose from, we were having a hard time making a decision, mainly because of the high prices. When we found Carmel Belle, we instantly knew we had found the place. Their selection of fresh,healthy food was very reasonable priced.

The options are limited but what they prepare is local, fresh and... More

Hidden jam in a nice little mole. Limited but great menu. Nice atmosphere and great food. I had beef cooked with wine and a side of root vegetables.

Order at the counter and eat in or take out. Open for breakfast, lunch and early dinner. Organic green drinks, fruit smoothies, wine, beer, coffee, etc. We had the roast herb chicken dinner. Delicious. We also have ordered take out and they were able to handle 15 meals and everyone was very happy.

This place just opened for dinner with a limited menu but it is excellent . You can even eat outside after ordering at the register. Reasonably priced for Carmel. Clam chowder has bacon and parmigiano on it. Perfect!

We stopped at Carmel Belle because of its lofty ratings, despite the cafeteria-like location that pulled us away from the sunshine and down an indoor shop-lined corridor. Luckily, the sky lights rejuvenated the eatery from above, but the yellow paint and average decor left a bit more to be desired. The service was the highlight, as was the food itself.... More
