a fairly small place with the usual menu offerings for breakfast and lunch. Food was good and plentiful. What makes this place special, is the attention from the owner/cook, who takes the time to make it a personalized dining experience.

What a great first impression! I am a Monterey County local and I currently have two jobs in Carmel but not much time in between. I was looking for something new to try and this place caught my eye. I placed a order to pick up on my way to job #2. As soon as I walked in I was... More

Loved the older cafe style ambience of this place. Owner operated with very friendly service. If you are craving a Hamburger hot off the grill this is the place for you.

My husband, 5 kids and I went to Friar Tucks for breakfast and had a blast! Staff is terrific and the food is good. Good basic breakfast menu with all the family favorites. We would definitely recommend.

If the owners around(and he usually is!) he'll be more then happy to give you a hard time and/or be helpful with local info. They have a really good and inexpensive menu options.

In Carmel for one night, had a fantastic breakfast at Friar Tuck's. First rate coffee and French toast to die for. $50 for four of us. Give it a go.........

We were staying at Hofsas Hotel up the road - their breakfast was all liquid and carbs - I knew I needed good protein to endure the drive down PCH on a Friday to Los Angeles - and I'd remembered walking past this place the night before.... It is very basic in appearance - there are a few flat screen... More

We were looking for a place to eat before church in Carmel and walked upon Friar Tuck's. A local restaurant on 5th and Dolores in Carmel. My husband had the French Toast Combo with french toast, eggs and sausage. and I had ordered an egg white omelet. My order came as a scramble, which, even though wrong was delicious. Jose,... More

We were hoping to get to Friar Tuck's early to beat the crowd. We arrived at 8:30 . . . that's the time they open! Ha! So, we were the second people to walk through the door. The owner was a hoot, he had plenty of one-liners (some would find inappropriate) but he made us laugh. I love that they... More

Maybe it's just me but I love it when the owner sits down at your table for a chat - this guy was hilarious and has such a great attitude it made my morning! Also the food was very good - I had the blueberry pancakes and my companion had an omelet that was absolutely stuffed with bacon cheese and... More
