Great views for breakfast and lunch

We liked the variety on the menu. The staff was super friendly and service oriented and quick with drinks and the meals. Great views of the coast!

This Hyatt Highlands Inn Restaurant has an outdoor deck with a spectacular ocean view, weather permitting. This was our second time here, but unfortunately, this time it was too windy to be seated on the deck for breakfast. I was hoping to have the Eggs Benedict made with crab and avocado, but they were all out of crab at 9:00... More

We went here for lunch while staying next door at Tickle Pink. There lunch menu is good, and our meals were tasty. Ask to sit on the patio if weather permits. You will have a stunning ocean view. The wine menu is careful selected. We did not feel like leaving our room, so they delivered dinner to our room that... More

We recently spent two nights at the lovely Highland's Inn in Carmel. California Market is one of our favorite restaurants in this area for the beautiful views and good food. Breakfast did not disappoint when we dined there. Delicious Eggs Benedict with lots of perfectly Hollandaise Sauce and a side of roasted potatoes were perfectly prepared. Our service is always...

On the lower floor of the Hyatt Carmel Highlands reception building but still with terrific views especially from its thin outdoor terrace. this casual restaurant turns out consistently fresh, tasty food, perhaps mimicking its pricier and more formal big brother upstairs. Use of fresh vegetables and fruits is notable.

My husband and I ate breakfast here and loved it. We ordered eggs Benedict and pancakes with a side of sausage. Everything was delicious! And the weather was perfect for sitting out on their deck. Views of the Pacific were breath-taking.

I have dined at California Market probably 15 times and often bring out of town guests here to enjoy the great food and views of the Pacific Ocean from the deck. The restaurant also offers indoor seating. I particularly enjoy their salads, especially the Point Reyes blue cheese salad, with pears and candied pecans. My husband swears by the Fried... More

Last Saturday after wine tasting at Ventana Vineyards, we drove up to The Highland's Inn for lunch at California Market. The weather was exceptionally beautiful and warm and we were seated at a table outside overlooking the beautiful coast. My entree was the Chicken Club Sandwich served with French Fries and I requested a small side of Aioli dipping sauce.... More

The California Market is a wonderful place for lunch. Whenever we're in the area we like to stop in. Located at the Hyatt Carmel Highlands, they have a nice outside seating area with spectacular ocean views. While we were dining we could see some whales. The restaurant even provided binoculars. We both ordered fish tacos, which we believe are the... More

We've again had lunch at the outdoors patio in this restaurant with splendid views of the Pacific. "The Seared Tuna Salad" was great, except for several leaves of spinach which were spoiled and inedible. The tuna, (three decent slices) was excellent, neatly presented, fresh and seared just to perfection. Salad dressing was subtle, not overpowering the flavors. The hearts of... More
