The cinnamon bun was extremely delicious and not too sweet, the puff pastry is also excellent but quite messy to eat. The ice creams are very good, however they don't give samples... it is a busy place for a reason.

While roaming in caramel we entered in one of the oldest cafe of town and it is above the expectations. As we were vegetarians,we still found veg sandwich etc in menu. Taste was good. Coffee was also wonderful.

Easy place to stop in and grab a bite! Lunch was very reasonably priced and delicious. Soup of the day and half sandwich was so good and cheap too! The sweet baked goods were top notch. Worth a visit!

We stopped by for breakfast while walking around Carmel, eager to check out their cheese danishes! (My parents used to live in the area many years ago, and remembered the cheese danishes as being amazing.) The shop is small and seems very popular with the...More
