The servings were large and the food was tasty. Every plate brought out to our table looked like something I wanted to try. I had the crustless quiche which was so huge I took half of it home. The prices were actually decent for around here. Probably cheap by Carmel standards. We were a large party who needed separate checks... More

Had a great breakfast here, service was very good. This place is tucked away in The Barnyard Center off Highway 1 and Rio Road. I recommend the food and setting, my only issue was all the flowers attract bees. Although they weren't aggressive they wanted my biscuit gravy :)

Found by chance. Had great eggs Benedict twice three times whilst in Carmel. Burgers looked fantastic. Coffee by the bucket full. A great start to the day.

We were staying at the Mission Inn nearby on vacation and went to From Scratch by chance. We had a great breakfast and came back 3 more times while vacationing in Carmel - Monterey. Their portions are generous and the food is outstanding. One of the best breakfast places we've been.

Had breakfast here after reading so many great things about this place. First it was really hard to find. It is in the barnyard shopping center but not easy to find. The service was terrible and when the waiter finally arrived at our table he was dripping in sweat. Always inviting! The food was mediocre and nothing special. Expensive and... More

I thoroughly enjoyed a crab omelet with my husband this morning. They server generous portions and service is good. I would eat here again, but have plenty of leftovers to get me through another meal. Enjoyed it - pricey, but gotta expect that for Carmel, California!

Solid breakfast place, with good large portions. Its kind of in a basement so there is no view but has a nice patio.

Situated in The Barnyard which was round the corner from The Carmel Mission Inn where we were staying. This place is homey and friendly, efficiently run. The breakfasts were delicious and lots of locals seemed to eat there. Would recommend.

My husband and I stopped here for breakfast on our way down the coast. We sat in the courtyard. As promised the food was made from scratch and delicious. I had the best corned beef hash with perfectly poached eggs. My husband enjoyed an omelet prepared to his specific requests. The service is incredible, my coffee cup always full (... More
