We always stop here for provisions. They have a reasonably priced private label cabernet that my wife loves. They grill stuff every day at lunchtime and have limited outdoor seating.

Carmel is expensive and if you don't want a full sit down meal, there are few options. Walk into the market here and head to deli counter. They have a great selection of deli items, hot food and even an amazing gyros sandwich. Take your food and eat at any outside locale. Your pocketbook will thank you!

When you are in Carmel and want to go for a picnic down the street at the beach - stop by at Nielsen Bros to stack up on all those goodies you need! Cheese, crackers, hard boiled eggs, vegetable and fruit, some dessert and of course - the outstanding wine collection there tops it off! They know their stuff, that's... More

Don't want to wait in line to get into a restaurant? Just want a "little something" This is your place. Everyday at lunch time they fire up the grill. Hotdogs, kielbasa, sausages and more with all the condiments. You order and pay inside, get a drink if you want, then come outside, give the grill man your order and he... More

Had a deli sandwich and browsed around while waiting. Sandwich was very good and average size. Manager or owner, was very friendly and offered us a stuffed grape leave to sample. Place was super clean and had a wide variety of what you would want from a smaller local market. A nice stop.

Nielsen Bros is one of two markets in Carmel and my favorite. It's small, but they have everything you need for a picnic on the beach, a quick dinner to heat up, snacks, deserts, coffee-to-go, fresh fruit. Great sandwiches made to order and underground parking which is a real plus in Carmel.

This is a good place to find food for a picnic. The sandwiches can be ordered with a variety of breads, meats, cheeses and toppings, plus there are tons of drinks, chips, desserts etc to choose from. My only complaint - why are American sandwiches SO THICK?! My boyfriend and I each ordered a sandwich and ended up only finishing... More

We were in the mood for a good quality sandwich. This is not the place if that is what you're looking for. While you can add pretty much any veggie and topping to your sandwich, nothing is terribly fresh and the bread is average. Skip it...
