The place was hopping when we walked in. Got there at 10:30am which was the perfect time because by 11am people were having to wait for a table. Corned Beef hash was very good & did taste homemade. Also had the beef chorizo & the Big Sur omelette & lotsa coffee. Left with a full belly & a new... read more

Even though we knew the general location of the restaurant, it took us a little while to find it. However, it was well worth the hunt. The restaurant itself is fairly basic, with a nice outdoor eating area. The service was friendly and prompt. The best part was the food. I had the chili which was made from beef brisket.... More

Went for breakfast with family. Good variety to choose from. Portions are huge, go hungry to enjoy the meal. Tried several options and loved everything on the menu

This is an average to below average place- NOT worth a wait of any length at all! I will say that they make the wait as pleasant as possible- they have a good system with an iPad and they text you. So, that is nice. The food though is not great--- eggs and bacon average. The cheddar biscuit was terrible-... More

Stayed in the area at a nearby hotel, and ate here everyday. Lunch is great. Try the french dip. Best I have ever had, tho they call it California dip. Breakfast was good, but a tad bit heavy. I would share a breakfast if I had a dining companion. Staff excellent

It was my first visit to Carmel and I decided to hunt out FSR as I had seen it on the Food Network. It was a little tough to find, but was nestled in a nice little shopping center. We arrived around 1 PM, and the place was half empty. We were unsure if there was a hostess or if... More

We always eat at From Scratch as our treat just before we have to head back home. We go for the delicious food, the comfortable, unpretentious atmosphere, and the gracious people working there. I should say running their socks off, because it's often busy. You can leave your number for a text when your table is ready, then stroll the... More
