Very nice pastries and super nice coffee. Although it is a bakery, they have a few tables to sit at and enjoy the goodies. Very popular, so always a line, but the staff is friendly and effecient, so wating times are ok.

Get the glazed pretzels - I can't believe I didn't find them at this place until the last time I was here. Now I've gone twice since and they are half the reason I look forward to going to Carmel. Other sweets are good too....More
