Tuck Box is one of the cutest restaurants in Carmel! You feel like you are going to Hansel and Gretel's house for breakfast :) Food is terrific and you have to try the scones. My husband and I went with our 5 kids and everyone liked what they ordered. We would highly recommend Tuck Box!

Weather was nice so we ate outside, nice atmosphere, service was very good, large portions, scones were to die for--Would definitely go here again.

Found this little restaurant walking around before breakfast. Wish I would have known they had outdoor seating but we had already been served our meal when I over heard the hostess mention it. It was a decent breakfast but expensive (I had a special order though so I'm sure that's why). I requested eggs/side of avocado/side of salmon and paid... More

We stopped by to get a snack and some ice tea! Their tea is so crisp and refreshing! The scones are amazing! They said it's a Scottish recipe brought to the United States 60 years ago! The homemade jams are wonderful! I am not a big fan of cherry but the cherry jam was my favorite! Really fun neat place... More

There is a reason this place has been here for 20+ years. It's not fancy, and it's not expensive, where the locals come to eat brunch.

This small restaurant that looks like a thatched roof hut is one of the most popular breakfast places in Carmel. Once you traverse the usual wait be sure to have one of their homemade scones- there is nothing like them in California - enjoy you'll appreciate the recommendation

My husband and I went to Carmel on a mini getaway on Sunday January 26th. We were starving and the first thing we came across was the Tuck Box. I fell in love with the look of the building. It is an adorable Tudor cottage that reminds me of something out of Disneyland. I ordered the hot oats (7.50) and... More
