“Wonderful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2013

I've been going here for coffee or lunch multiple times a week since it opened. Excellent food and service. All organic and mostly locally sourced. Great for breakfast, lunch, and coffee breaks. They will be expanding in early 2014 and will then be offering early dinners also.

“lovely little spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013

Very quality food, nice service, great coffee! Only complaint--and it's not really a fair complaint--is that they don't do traditional brunchy foods, and that for the amt/quality of the food, it IS a little pricey. But they were wonderful about getting us a bowl of cut-up berries for our son, and the ingredients were clearly top-notch.

“Perfect for a quick lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013 via mobile

It is very hard to find but worth it! I had the ham, asparagus and MoZerella panini which was fresh and lovely.

“Too crowded”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2013

We used to like going there, but over the past year it has become super busy, with long lines and sparse seating every time we wanted to eat there, so we have stopped going there.

I also didn't like how they up charge for little things like $4 for extra tomatoes!

“Best green eggs in Carmel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

I tried the green eggs and ham mainly because of good reviews and as a gimmick for my young daughter, who like the Dr. Suess story. The poached egg dish had prosciutto and an arugula-herb-based puree, which would explain a slightly bitter kick. It was very good, but not amazing. Those with larger appetites will probably want to order something extra to complement this dish.
