We stopped by Em Le's late one morning with our two miniature dachshunds to have breakfast. We hadn't been here before on our trips to Carmel because we always bring our pups and it had not been listed as "dog friendly" in the past. This time I noticed on their website that they had outdoor seating so we stopped to have a look. We didn't see any outdoor seating so my husband went in to ask. They said they hadn't set up the tables because it was chilly, but they would be happy to set one up for us and our dogs. They immediately placed a table and chairs in a cute nook beside the restaurant and brought out a dish of water for the dogs. They were so friendly and treated us like royalty, even though it was obvious that we were not locals.
My husband and I both ordered breakfast, he had the basic bacon and eggs while I ordered a waffle. Based on the comments, we decided to share an order of the french toast. Besides being outrageously delicious, the french toast is a work of art! I am not a big french toast fan, but this dish is amazing! My husband and I fought over it and while our other food was good, this was incredible. You have to give it a try! Because we had so much food, we decided to take some of the french toast with us and had it later that night for dessert. It was even good cold.
This was our best experience ever at a restaurant in Carmel and I will definitely be back in the future.
