This place has over priced food and the service was poor. The waiter never checked on us throughout the time we were there. When they did it would take forever to get anything we needed. I wouldn't eat at this restaurant.

Who could top a beautiful ocean view while eating a crab and avocado egg Benedict? Great service by a knowledgeable waiter. An outdoor deck completes the setting.

We had a great table on the patio overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Beautiful! I had the mushroom pepper egg white omelette which was delicious. My wife had scrambled eggs, bacon, roasted potatoes and delicious fresh whole wheat bread. Both entrees were prepared to perfection. Our service was excellent.

We ate off of their bar menu and it is much more affordable during happy hour. The food was good and the service was also good. We had looked at the menu at Pacific Edge and it was more expensive than we were planning on.

We have not been in the Carmel Highland's area for a couple of years and were disappointed to learn that our absolute favorite Breakfast Sandwich has been replaced with the Breakfast Panini. The Panini is good, don't get me wrong - but it's not the original Breakfast Sandwich that they used to offer.

The view from the restaurant is wonderful, and there is patio dining with fresh air and a view. The food was good. Our waiter seemed very annoyed that we arrived close to the end of the breakfast service.

Our last meal in Carmel was at California Market and it left us with a wonderful feeling about Carmel. It is located in the Hyatt, Carmel Highlands. We ate a California eggs benedict, and a salmon plate and our daughter had a yogurt parfait which she did not like, but the rest of the food was excellent. The views from... More

Our family stopped into the California Market for a late lunch on our way from Carmel to Big Sur. The waiter was pleasant however the rest of the staff seemed a bit put out. The food was good (not great) but decent for the price. The views were very nice however the setting was a bit odd. It is located... More

Maybe I have been a budget traveler for too long to appreciate high priced average food. We had to ask for bread, I really couldn't tell if my $9.00 soup was tomato or carrot??? and the wait staff was placing bets on how long the new customers would stay. One staffer picked 10 minutes... The view was great but 2... More

If you're planning to have a meal at the California Market, ask to be seated on the outdoor deck where you will enjoy a beautiful view with your meal. Note: there aren't very many places on the deck, so call ahead to reserve (especially if you have a largish group). The food itself was also very good, I picked the... More
