Ordered breakfast at 1:00 pm from a varied menu. Joe's Special was good and the bananas, blueberries, raspberries and strawberries were the sweetest I've had. Cappuccino had grounds in it, but everything else was good . Service was good but kitchen was a bit slow. We'd go back though .

Love the food, especially the breakfast. Love the veggie Huevos Ranchero... Lunch is also excellent, great menu and outside seating available. Only problem is the hours of operation for breakfast, tried there a couple of times, but was not open... I asked about the breakfast hours and was told there were still trying to come up with a fixed schedule.

A group of us stopped in for lunch on our way through Carmel. The place is small and tucked away in a nice shopping area. They were able to accommodate our group all at one table. The service was very friendly and helpful. I don't know if it was because we were a larger group (10) but it took quite... More

Went here for brunch last weekend and had a very nice meal and great service. Started with bottomless mimosa :). I had classic eggs Benedict - I asked for fully cooked egg whit and received firm yolks as well. The only downside. My son's cheese blintzes were excellent. My egg allergic husband wears able to order a quesadilla, since both... More

We arrived for dinner albeit without a reservation at 7:45pm. We had checked out the dinner menu earlier in the day and thought we'd try it on our stay in Carmel. There were two groups in but no sign of any staff! After waiting for five minutes, we went into the kitchen. We were told they stop serving at 8pm.... More

Though there was a mix up with the Open Table reservation, they seated us right away. We had the filetto and plank Salmon for our main courses and they were both excellent. Service was attentive and we will dine there again.

We visited Carmel for a last-minute trip to celebrate New Year's Eve. Not surprisingly, many of the restaurants in the center of the village were booked, but we were lucky enough to book a reservation at Bistro 211 on Open Table. What serendipity! This is a very sweet, inviting cafe with a lovely staff and truly delicious food. The price... More

Carmel is filled with wonderful places to eat. We have eaten here several times but today was the last. Before it had been adequate and we are in the area frequently. I had the BLT sandwich and even though it was seemingly overpriced I had high expectations. I love a god BLT. Great bread, thick slices of tomato, fresh crisp... More

Excellent food and a great value. A charming, intimate place with a warm, welcoming atmosphere and service. They even smoke their own salmon! I loved the Carpaccio, maybe the best I've ever had. Nice wine list, too. No wonder I was dining among locals instead of tourists.
