We went to the Wagon Wheel 3 times during our two week stay in Carmel. Each time the food was delicious and I felt like I was having a proper breakfast. The pancakes are great but HUGE, I couldn't even finish one and I usually have a big appetite! The eggs and bacon were my favourite though, with potatoes and... More

Locals told me to come here for a good breakfast and they were right. Loved sitting at the counter just a few feet away from the kitchen staff. Amazing how they kept it all flowing in such a tiny space. Corned beef hash was homemade and delicious. My veggie omelet was California fresh and substituting thick tomato slices for potatoes...

Good breakfast place in Carmel Valley. Big portion sizes. Oatmeal pancakes very good. Mix of tourists and locals. They don't take credit cards so bring cash.

We enjoyed the food, but didn't enjoy the noise level because of the kitchen in the middle of the restaurant and open floor plan. We felt a bit cramped at our table for two. Cash only. Everything in Carmel is pricey, so this was pretty much mid-stream for cost.

We had breakfast at the Wagon Wheel and were mightily impressed. There's a couple of outdoor tables and we had the good fortune to enjoy our meal with a view of Carmel Valley. My friend ordered poached eggs with hollandaise and I had a spinach, bacon, swiss omelet. We also tried one of Martha's famous oatmeal pancakes. We weren't particular... More

We had breakfast at this restaurant which is open for breakfast and lunch only. The menu was extensive and the food and service were good. The restaurant is heavily decorated with western memorabilia.

I go to this restaurant every year during the Big Sur marathon. I am a school bus driver and I love their chicken fried steak. their sausage gravy is off the chain. Always have leftovers for the next day.

Pretty tasty french toast. Went on the Sunday morning of fathers day, they were clearly busy but the service was still ok and the food was turned out quickly.

Low keyed breakfast. Levi was super sweet and made us feel at home! Got the pleasure of sitting outside and meeting some people who were from the area just out with their adorable dogs. Gotta love how friendly Cali is to all puppies!
