My wife is a keen baker so we had to pop in to sample the local treats and a cup of coffee. Everything looked delicious and the staff were very friendly. I would sample everything if we stayed longer!

This is a 100+ year old Carmel institution and it’s a multifaceted facility having Coffee ( Starbucks), ice cream, a deli and some sundries. One stop shop in the heart of Carmel. Nice.
