After walking all over town trying to find something to eat we found this gem. The food was extremely fresh and included veggies. After travelling all week it was nice to get food that didn't feel heavy. You could taste the grill flavor on everything. The brussel sprouts were mushy and it seems that every veggie had a sauce on... More

Carmel Belle was recommended by friends and we were not disappointed. The decor and surroundings are unassuming but the food is incredibly fresh, sourced from local ingredients, and very tasty. We went for breakfast one day and then went back for lunch the following day. Breakfast for me was coffee (hot and fresh) and the Baugette/Brie/Fuit plate with a side... More

We had breakfast here and we both had a cappucino. I had the eggs with the proscuitto and my husband had the eggs and the bacon. The eggs were served perfectly cooked (medium) on great bread. The proscuitto was plentiful and lean. My husband really enjoyed the bacon. The coffee was very good as well. Service was good. All in... More

Enjoyed our lunch immensely. Healthy menu choices, but not so off the wall to scare non-healthy eaters away
