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.

They recently started doing dinner and only till 8pm but trust me, you want to go here: for less than $15 we had delicious and I mean d-e-l-i-c-i-o-u-s steak, roast chicken and meatloaf. 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

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
