We had breakfast Skillets and they were wonderful! Very crowded on a Saturday morning but we were lucky to be seated right away. 10 minutes later there were at least 20 people waiting outside. Timing is everything. Service was real good; Rosie was very attentive but not overly so. Would go back again.

We struggled to find this place because is somewhat hidden in between other shops. It closes relatively early, so if you are driving along PCH and get here after 2:30pm, you'll probably have to find another place. Good food in a lovely place. Staff is very friendly.

The first time you come here and finding it may mar your enjoyment of the place due to it's hard to find. You may rate this awesome on your second or third visit when you can make a beeline for the restaurant and not wander aimlessly around the Barnyard to find the restaurant.

Let me explain the "qualified five" title. When I checked "yes" as to whether this was one of the best meals "you've ever had in a restaurant", the "you" refers to me, not to my wife, and to one particular menu item, the "Huevos Rancheros". I try "Huevos Rancheros" wherever I think they may be superior, and since I love... More

I ate here because it was one of the higher rated restaurants in the area..and I'm sure glad I did. All the food was excellent. Everything tasted like it was homemade hence the name "from scratch". We were so pleased with this place, we ate there again the following day. The breakfast burrito is one the best I've ever had.... More

Hubby and I live locally and woke up Sunday morning hungry for a big breakfast. I googled breakfast Carmel and this came up as number four. Hard to find, so take my tip and just drive around the back of the Barnyard property and park back there. However a walk through the Barnyard gardens is always a treat. If you... More

Nice outdoor patio, perfect for dining with our dog. Covered by trellis, so it's not completely sheltered, but the restaurant is tucked back on the bottom floor and sheltered by the surrounding shops for a very quiet and pleasant area. Never ate inside, but it seems even more compact and crowded inside. Prices are a bit on the high side... More

A very nice breakfast and lunch place in the Barnyard Shopping Center of Carmel. Indoor and outside seating that allows dogs to enjoy the patio as well. Full menu of breakfast and lunch items and reasonably priced. Specialty omelets or you can build your own. Skillets, pancakes, and even biscuits and gravy. The service is wonderful but can slow down... More

On our visit, we had the nicest and most friendly waitress. The food was delish. We had the cinnamon french toast and breakfast burrito. They serve breakfast late, so that was a huge plus for us. Parking is easy as it is in a shopping center. It is towards the back of the shopping center, so once you park just... More

After reading the reviews, we decided to eat lunch here. I had the tuna fish salad. It was a large portion of canned tuna, on top of lettuce, surrounded by several different kinds of chopped vegetables. I enjoyed it more then I expected and couldn't finish it, because I got too full. My husband had a custom omelette. He said... More
