We recently visited carmel for lunch and a day out from San Francisco and enjoyed our experience at this gorgeous bakery. The atmosphere was relaxed and friendly as were the lovely staff. The meals were fresh and delicious and beautifully simplistic

Walking past this bakery is like dropping a child in the middle of a toy store. The window is full of pastries, breads and pretzels! Gigantic pretzels! That's what drew me in. For a dessert, we got a brownie, two giant cupcakes and a cheese pretzel. The smells were fabulous. There is plenty to pick! My complaint? There isn't a... More

Stopped in for a quick lunch. The baked goods looked super tempting! We had a delicious Cuban sandwich and our daughter had the hot dog, both were great. Our friend had a meatball sub which was also good. The desserts unfortunately look better than they taste. The sugar cookies tasted like Stella D'oro, the eclair was not as crispy as... More

Staying at the Pine Inn so this place is convenient right across the street. It's got a huge selection of pastries, croissants, danishes, muffins, etc, all fair sized, reasonable prices, muffins are the cheapest at $1.95, danishes could be twice as much, medium size tea at $2.20. There are a few tables to sit inside, can probably accommodate about 18... More

Honestly, we had plans for dinner and couldn't really indulge too much. It was just too hard to walk by the window full of so many delicious looking temptations. We got a couple of cannolis and didn't regret them one bit. They were fresh and creamy and just what you hope for when getting a cannoli. Good thing we had... More

What lovely aroma! lots of choices. Settled on a delicious, fresh cinnamon bun & hot chocolate for a snack & later returned for a great turkey sandwich at lunch. A local lady said she eats there regularly because of quality & price. It's very popular so often crowded but a short wait usually yields a table. Staff are very on... More
