“Right in Downtown Carmel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013

Had a deli sandwich and browsed around while waiting. Sandwich was very good and average size. Manager or owner, was very friendly and offered us a stuffed grape leave to sample. Place was super clean and had a wide variety of what you would want from a smaller local market. A nice stop.

“A local favorite.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

Nielsen Bros is one of two markets in Carmel and my favorite. It's small, but they have everything you need for a picnic on the beach, a quick dinner to heat up, snacks, deserts, coffee-to-go, fresh fruit. Great sandwiches made to order and underground parking which is a real plus in Carmel.

“Quick and easy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013

This is a good place to find food for a picnic. The sandwiches can be ordered with a variety of breads, meats, cheeses and toppings, plus there are tons of drinks, chips, desserts etc to choose from. My only complaint - why are American sandwiches SO THICK?! My boyfriend and I each ordered a sandwich and ended up only finishing half. We saved the other halves for dinner, but by that time they were too soggy to eat. I'd recommend one sandwich per couple unless you're used to eating that much in one sitting.

“If you're wanting a good sandwich.. skip this spot”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

We were in the mood for a good quality sandwich. This is not the place if that is what you're looking for. While you can add pretty much any veggie and topping to your sandwich, nothing is terribly fresh and the bread is average.

Skip it...
