We never do this!

We had breakfast here three out of the four days we stayed in Carmel. This is not like us, but with a huge selection for both breakfast or lunch... Why not more of a good thing. We live within a hundred miles and have come to the town for get-always for nearly 50 years. We have always found good... read more

If you like eggs, this is your place! Yes, different Benedict's, omlettes, and Heuvos Rancheros (ask for fresh jalepenos). Fresh squeezed OJ and Grapefruit juice. The place is small, have a coffee and wait. Be sure to bring CASH! No cards accepted!

We stopped in for brunch and had an omelette and a sandwich. The omelette and country potatoes were pretty average. The club health sandwich was very tasty, especially the sourdough bread. Very large sandwich and I opted for the potato salad side. The salad was okay, but the sandwich was really good. Omelette, sandwich and two sodas with tax and... More

Let's first start out by saying this is one of the top ten places listed in Carmel to eat. I don't understand the hype. The portions are huge and not very well done. I ordered the biscuits and gravy, there was not even sausage in the gravy and the biscuits were not even special. My husband ordered the pancakes those... More

We visited in March 2015 just after installation of new kitchen facilities. Weather permitting sitting outside is ideal. The food is varied and delicious. No disappointments. May be a line but worth the wait! We had omelettes and they were perfect!

Best ever!!! So much flavor and volume of veggies. I am usually a barely touch my plate person and I ate half the omelette, most of the roasted new potatoes and all the thick dry sour dough toast.

My friend and I with her kids went on a road trip from Oceanside to San Francisco, passing thru Carmel, Big Sur, and Sequoia on our way back. When we were at Carmel, we ask a frequent tourist on the best restaurant here and this was recommended. Our expectations were surpassed. The food is great! Servings are huge. Service is... More

I judge the quality of a breakfast place by their corned beef hash. Even though the corned beef hash was freshly made (the first qualifier) the dish left something to be desired. There was a scant amount of hash mixed the the corned beef and the corned beef was greasy. Perhaps I wold have enjoyed d the meal more had... More

Big portions, every type of benedict you can imagine. A little crowded, but worth the wait. A mandatory stop for us every time we visit Carmel.

We came here for breakfast having read all the fantastic reviews on trip advisor. It was a happening place! Very crowded for breakfast on a Sunday morning but we were seated right away. Small table, crammed next to another small table. The food is good but, wow, the prices are high. Oatmeal for $9. Most egg dishes are over $12.... More
