We slip in here first thing when we're in Carmel or thereabouts. It is a simple, casual scene, nestled within a shopping gallery, but with the best, fresh dishes, cookies, tea and coffee. You can stop right there with the sliced avocado with sea salt and olive oil on grilled bread. It is an addiction, nothing even close anywhere else.... More

We were looking for a nice place for breakfast and saw a bunch of locals with their takeout coffee and traced it back to Carmel Belle. It's not easy to spot as it's hidden inside a gallery of shops. I had the mushroom &egg sandwich and my husband had the egg& bacon. Both were really good. We also ordered coffee... More

My friend and I stopped by Carmel Belle for breakfast after an early morning hike. We were still dusty and cooling down, so the seat-your-self dining room was perfect. The ambiance is almost like you're in an enclosed garden, spacious and roomy, with farm/chicken decorations. And the food was great! We each ordered an egg sandwich, simple but delicious. Plus...

I had Bree and soft baguette and asparagus, with a latte. My companion had a vegetarian spinach Benedict on brioche with California dream fresh juice. Very west coast and delicious.

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.

Went here because our first choice was full up and boy what a nice place. 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
