Went there for a quick lunch, with organic food. Menu is standard lunch stuff (salads, chicken, burgers...). Well and quickly prepared. We also took a take away plater of cheese and ham, and this was a nice apetizer side with champagne on the balcony with sunset.

Be sure to stop in and have lunch or a coffee and treat. Buy the granola for sure. Kid friendly and the choices are many. Really good soups.

Carmel Belle has recently expanded their seating area, and it is SO COZY. You can grab a fresh juice on the go, meet a friend for a cup of coffee, or take your family out for a nice meal. They have it all. Perfect location, fresh menu items (you can sin or stay on track with their selections).

Carmel Belle is a counter-service, casual eatery and coffee bar serving breakfast, lunch and (early!!) dinner. Open daily at 8 am, but call ahead before coming in the evening; they close between 5-8pm depending on the day. Patio, cards accepted. We've stopped in for a delicious breakfast. Prices are middling to high based on downtown Carmel and self service; food... More

This is a place where you place your order at the counter and they bring it to you. You get your own place settings and water. My husband and I went there for Sunday breakfast and both had the mushroom egg melt. It was poached eggs with mushrooms and fontina cheese on toasted sour dough bread, It was good but... More

This is a terrific little cafe located inside a small cluster of shops. Food is fresh, original, and delicious--nothing like this at home. Great coffee, neat decor with wonderful indoor fire pit. After coming for lunch, we returned the next day for breakfast and will probably be back again before we leave! A great pick if you love fresh ingredients... More

Been here several times. Everything is utterly fresh. Their soups are excellent. I always find the salad dressing could do with a bit more personality, but the salads themselves are very, very good. Lots of nice (healthy) kids options too.

The menu has breakfast, lunch and dinner options with the freshest ingredients. The meats are hormone-free, grass fed and free range raised in California. Produce is organic and purchased from local farmers. They also have a juice bar with tasty options. You can't go wrong here!!!

Carmel Belle is "Carmel's living room". It's where the locals eat and socialize. The food and service are both excellent, and the menu is all organic and mostly local ingredients. It's a little funky–you order at the counter, pick up your drink from the barista, and a server brings your meal. They also offer takeaway for all items. Several times... More

This coffee shop is hidden away in a courtyard off of San Carlos Street. Definitely a place for locals to go for coffee. A great place for lunch with a good selection of soups and salads. The menu also offers breakfast and dinner items. Soups are made from scratch every day. I had the tomato basil with a slow-cooked pork... More
