The window display was so enticing, we had to check them out. We were not disappointed, best soft pretzels. Kids loved then so much, we made a second trip into Carmel just got the bakery.

My family and I have been on a search for the best cannoli and we found it! Johnny at Cafe Carmel makes THE BEST Sicilian cannoli! The shell is delicious! A lot of times it's bland and soggy but not these. Made fresh and he doesn't fill it until you order so the shell is crispy. LOVE their cannoli's!! ~Joy

So after spending a zillion dollars on diner in Carmel, you decide an ice cream cone for dessert makes a lot of sense. This is the place to go...for ice cream or for something totally sinful. Did I mention that the service is fast and friendly?

Loved the variety and we could find things a six year old would eat. Great fruit tarts and chocolate croissants (those were our non healthy splurge)

My wife and I discovered the Cafe Carmel when we were looking for an afternoon coffee/pastry break. We enjoyed it so much that we made it part of our routine for the rest of our stay. Our routine, which I highly recommend to anyone who finds it appealing, was; order two coffees and one slice of the chocolate cheese cake... More

The turkey wrap was tasted and with a drink the total was $11. I consider that standard and really worth the money. Although I was by myself, it was large enough for 2 with chips and a drink. I don't understand why they assign numbers to the orders and then scream them out. There were only 3 of us in... More

The pastries were amazing. I had the "death by chocolate," at the recommendation of the mastermind behind this amazing creation Johnny (aka the manager). It was this chocolate and peanut butter brownie w/ tiny chocolate chips covered in whipped cream and caramel. It was amazing. Also, the staff was very friendly. I would recommend this place to anyone who wants... More
