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

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.

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
