I came to Bubs a lot when I worked across the street from it. I miss it so much. They have amazing granola and soups. I cant say enough good things about this place. If you are looking for scratch made foods than you have to come here!!!!

We rarely go out for breakfast but decided to go to Bub's cafe in the downtown of Carmel. It is directly two blocks south of the first Bub,s burgers. We did have about a 25 minute wait which isn't surprising for a weekend Our service was good. The menu has a wide variety of items from the typical bacon and... More

Ate here this morning, based on recommendation from my wife's boss...really good food, fun atmosphere, fair pricing, would eat here again. This place is tucked a few blocks off the main drag and somewhat easy to miss, but definitely worth it.

I live in Carmel, and this is my number one choice for breakfast! Always my Mother's Day treat (get there early), and the place we take out of town guests! Get the cinnamon raisin toast and Bub holes! Fantastic!

Was here for the first time having breakfast and it was excellent. It is a little tucked away off of the beat and path but well worth checking out. Had great service and the inside decor reminded me of a nice brunch place that you might find in California.

Great breakfast. Very good coffee and always good food, fresh and prepared better than most. Love the atmosphere.

We enjoyed a great breakfast while passing through Indiana. The menu is interesting with lots of unusual choices. Croissant french toast and eggs with a beet hash were both very good. Took home some of their donut holes and homemade granola, both excellent.

Despite living within a mile of both Bubs in Carmel for over 10 years, we had never been there and decided to try the café last Saturday for breakfast. We were seated at a large table in the back of café. The service was very slow, we ordered 3 donuts almost as soon as we sat down and they didn't... More

The breakfast specials here are delicious. I'm partial to Breakfast in Burma, however my real love is the soup. It's made fresh every day, which means, unfortunately, that they usually have only one soup selection. However, if you're there when they have a soup that sounds promising, definitely try it. It's the real deal. (Typically, all customers are given a... More

My wife and I rode our bikes along the Monon and decided to have lunch here for the first time. We weren't the only ones as there were quite a few bikes parked along their fence that runs parallel to the path. They have outdoor dining available under a roof, but we were already a little warm from the ride... More
