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 save you some time-The signs... More

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

Okay...so it is so worth searching for...just don't look in the big Crossroads shopping center. It is in the Barnyard...near the big Post Office. Perfect granola! Great wraps! Huge portions and really friendly servers. Our go to place out of Carmel:)

You can always rely on this place to be consistently, good, homemade food! The inside eating area is small but they have a beautiful outdoor eating area! We ate here for breakfast & lunch! Both were outstanding! Their service is good as well. Definitely what we would call "old reliable"!
