It took us awhile to find this place, tucked underneath shops in the Carmel Barnyard Shopping Center, but it was very cute and someone said the signature cheese biscuits alone were worth the search. I guess our expectations were too high, as the omelets we ordered were almost inedible. Though the filling was very generous, the egg disc folded around... More

Located in the Barn Yard Shopping Center on the lower level-just behind the Carmel Mission Inn were I stayed. I found it on the Yelp app when looking for breakfast because of the poor buffet offered by the hotel. Both times I ate there-it was full and an attempted third on a Saturday AM was a 30 minute wait-due to... More

Went there with a party of eight from my office. We all enjoyed our breakfast. I had the Pebble Beach omelet with wonderful potatoes. Others had pancakes, eggs Benedict, French Toast and Agee dishes I cannot recall.everyone really enjoyed their meals. I have been eating there over 15 years and have never been disappointed!!!

Chili was out of this world, great flavours and beef was so tender. Chicken apple sausage frittata special was delicious... and the biscuits so yummy. Nice atmosphere, good service.

Loved the beef chorizo omelet and potatoes for brunch. I took the option of a blueberry (fresh berries cooked into it rather than on it) pancake that I could not stop eating...so I ate waaaay too much. Others in our party enjoyed their food equally as well.

Stopped here after 2+ hr drive. Both indoor and outdoor seating. Beautiful but warm day so sat outside. Generous size sandwich. Delicious. Chips were very tasty. Sandwich with chips and soda and tax was $17

We stayed nearby and saw the barnyard shops so we figured there would be a restaurant. When we found this place we figured it would be good because there were lots of people. We waited about 7 minutes for a table and had the best service. The hostess and the waiter were extremely friendly and helpful. The food was great,... More

Nice corned beef hash in the Barn Yard shopping area. The location is about a mile south of the village on the other (east) side of Highway 1.
