cute place

This is a great place to meet a friend for lunch. The menus are unusual because you can order off a tablet. The wine is pricey..

Good quick service but you never feel rushed. You can choose to be high tech through their tablets or work with your server or both. A nice variety of options to fill your belly and helps you pause to appreciate the conversation. It is also next to a great running store...must burn off the calories, you know.

We wish the service was as good as the food. The menu is on an iPad like device but no one told us how to use it to appreciate all its features (problem #1). We specified our orders to be timed slowly, not rushed, that was not the case (problem#2). We sent back the food as it arrived too quickly.... More

Nice place to stop for q glass of wine..but if your looking for a place where you can grab a snack, this isn't it. Another place with an over priced new age menu that is only for that special pallet

Service is always great and the food is great too. Being as you have a choice of meal sizes you can order the small portion. Then get several items to share.

This place is so good and a great concept utilizing IPads to order. The menu is varied, I had the frite steak and substituted quinoa in place of the fries. Steak was good, a bit overcooked but edible. Quinoa was my first and it was yummy with pistachios, dried cranberries and apricots. We also had the mussels and they were... More

We have dined here a few times and we always get good service. I feel food could have been better. Steak was a bit tough. Did not say anything but I am sure they would have corrected as they try very hard.

We stayed near Busch Gardens but a friend recommended we drive to Carmel Cafe. We had great service, a relaxed but nice atmosphere and most importantly great food.
