We were staying at a house in Carmel Valley and did not feel like sitting in a restaurant. We were able to get a complete dinner at a reasonable price here and heat it up in the microwave. The food was cooked from scratch and was delicious. We had enchiladas, which came with a side of green beans and soup.... More

Food was quite good. Staff were friendly and helpful. Sit in the beer garden if you can and enjoy the blue jays.

I have discovered the most charming café. Baum and Blume & The Carriage House is located in Carmel Valley Village, just off of Carmel Valley Rd at 4 El Caminito Rd. The Cafe is open Monday through Saturday offering a lunch and dinner menu with a waffle breakfast on Saturdays. The menu changes weekly and each Saturday, they offer 2... More

A small gem of a place. Hand-picked well thought-out store and handcrafted food offer so much to look forward to as you drive into Carmel Valley Village (yes, there is such a thing.) There is a beautiful outside seating if the weather is good, and the holiday mailer they send out is a lot of fun. This is a family... More

The food, festivities, boutique and folks are always delightful at this very creative and deightful establishment. In my 10 years of selecting some gourmet take-out at the end of a day , attending their special events (dinners, St. Patrick Day's luncheon with guests, an annual Holiday venue) or stepping into the Carriage House for a gift, card or plant, I've...

This sweet little place on a side street off of Carmel Valley Road is so unpretentious you might drive right past it -- and never have a quintessential Carmel Valley dining experience.,,,, But no! Don't miss it -- map it, and go. When you arrive, ask for a shady table on the tiny grassy patio ... ask for the wine... More

B&B has a gourmet take-out, a boutique, and a small cafe to eat in if you choose. The owners (D&J Wenzler) are friendly and the food is excellent!
