Perfect Sunday Brunch

The service was OK, but the Eggs Benny Bacon (switching the ham for bacon) with the Meyer Lemon hollandaise was delicious. To top it off: berry pancakes! Coffee could be a bit stronger.

Yes, it is out in the middle of Carmel Valley, up a very winding road, much of it into the sun because of the time of day. Give yourself plenty of time. But it is a beautiful drive. The place looks like an ice house (beer joint) in Texas. You can make an early reservation (before 7, but the earlier... More

The service was hard to describe. It took the waitress 30 minutes just to give us a menu. We waited another 40 minutes before we were able to get the waitress to take our order. 35 to 40 minutes later our order had not come up, so we asked the waitress what the wait was. she told us the food...

an adventure to drive there..food is excellent. The music loud and if crowded can get noisy. Reservations are a must for they are only open for dinner on Monday nights. Brunch on Sundays are also good and can sit outside and enjoy the weather.

It's very different (country casual), a loong drive on a very curvaceous road, and the service leaves something to be desired. If you are looking for a conventional restaurant, look elsewhere. But if you're up for a very eclectic menu and fairly priced wine on a Monday night, and not in a hurry, it's worth the drive. Our party of... More

What I particularly loved about the General Store is that it is all locals by virtue of the fact that if you don't know it is there you won't find it. We had a outdoor breakfast with wonderful food and service.

My husband and I kept hearing rave reviews about this place, so we decided to make the 55 minute drive and try it out. It was fabulous! The staff was very welcoming and friendly. I ordered the skirt steak with porcini mushrooms in a cream sauce. It was absolutely perfect! My husband ordered the sole cooked with apples. He said... More

I am not trying to plagurize the title given to the Cachagua General Store in Carmel Valley by another reviewer, but rather to completely concur with his choice of words in trying to describe this most unusual and absolutely unique enterprise. As the tale goes, the locally well-known catering business, "A Moveable Feast" established its business site in Cachaqua with... More

Unconventional! Absolutely, but in a good way. We just had dinner at the Store and experienced a wonderful time with friends. From the moment you find the store (after a lengthy drive), you're in for a good time. The bathroom is outside the entrance, the décor is Carolina chic and there are any number of canines that seem to walk... More
