“Cozy little place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

As a local, I come here often to grab some coffee and read my book. They have good coffee and pastry. Their carrot cake is my favorite (so is the pecan bar). I haven't had the Panini’s but they always look good then others order it. It's a small cafe I like to come and relax. They have limited inside and a few more outside seating.

“Delicioso”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013 via mobile

After asking for recommendations to enjoy a good coffee, my husband and I ended up at this location. I agree with other reviews, this place has the best latte in town. Not only so, but I really liked their small and cute little pastries and lets not forget their delicious Eclair, if that's how you spell it. Will definitely recommend this place.

“Best Latte in Carmel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2013

Well, I tried all the coffee houses in Carmel (in the village), and the Carmel Coffee and Cocoa Bar had the best latte and pastries. The employees were quite nice. This will be my go-to coffee bar the next time I visit. It's located on the first level of the plaza. There's outdoor seating that is dog-friendly.

“Yummy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013

Great coffee and pasteries. They also have whismical cupcakes for the grandchildren. They come in a decorated box as well. A fun morning stop when walking in the village.

“Quite possibly the most reasonably priced place in Carmel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

This cute coffee shop not only has fresh brewed coffee, but also offers an $8.95 combo that includes half a sandwich, side salad and fruit. A Panini is $6.95. After seeing hamburgers for $14.00 all over town, we discovered this coffee bar and ate lunch there twice. The courtyard is lovely, the birds are gregarious, and the food is tasty. We definitely recommend it. It is located on Mission St, just south of Ocean Ave. in the shopping center there.
